The Americans are here
Posted on April 09 2013
We know its Fashion week and everyone else is celebrating all things fashionably Australian, but this week at Standard Central, we are clapping our hands over our latest deliveries from the Big Apple. Introducing ‘In God We Trust’. This accessory label from Brooklyn girl Shana features beautifully hand-made must-haves (money clips, hip flasks, pendant necklaces) delicately scribed with potty mouthed phrases more likely to be heard flying from a Taxi-cab’s side window in Downtown Manhattan than scratched onto fine jewellery. A million miles away from the polite boulevards of Paris! OM. Tempering down the hot-tempered IGWT pieces are these perfectly-balanced karmic basics. Calming hues soothe the frazzled fashion soul, while the cuts flatter our sensitive bits with a skillful bit of tailoring and drape. A Detacher is the grand dame of our American gang, oozing European luxury and sophistication courtesy of Mona Kowalska’s honed aesthetic.
