Style for Christmas: A Foreign Affair

For citizens of the world! Whether you’re into woven neutrals and tribal brights or sleek, business lounge chic, there are loads of spoils here for the jet set. We’re especially excited to feature a shirt by South African-born, Brisbane designer Roux May, who we spotted at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this year. The beautiful Iceland prints are a limited edition run by Melbourne photographer Marija Ivkovic. They are so beautiful – we could daydream for hours staring into them.

I wanted to create a fun themed ‘gift giving’ series that reflects who The Garb Wire is. To do this I selected films from the New York Times Best 1000 Movies Ever Made list, then hunted & gathered products inspired by those titles.
