SASS & BIDE (Australia) Embellished Maxi Dress

One of Australia’s most respected and loved fashion labels, Sass & Bide is the namesake label of Sarah-Jane Clarke (Sass) & Heidi Middleton (Bide). These best friends broke the rules, followed their hearts and today enjoy international success.
The sense of free-spirited confidence and contradiction that defines the designing duo’s style is evident in this free-flowing, eclectically embroidered (and very expensive!) maxi dress.

BEN SHERMEN (England) Men's Underwear

Though you might never have heard of Arthur Benjamin Sugarman, you surely must recognise Ben Sherman: the name of Sugarman’s iconic mostly-menswear label. Based in the southern seaside city of Brighton, England, Sugarman launched his clothing company in 1963 — the moment when fashion and music converged and the rocker style was born — that quickly caught on with stylish young gents across the UK. Ever since, Ben Sherman has served as the go-to source for well-dressed Anglophiles, post-modern mods, and in-the-know music buffs in Great Britain and beyond.
As it happens, Ben Sherman also offers an underwear collection — basics which feature soft cotton/modal blend, sexy hues, contemporary cuts, and a fit that is better than a globe. ;-)
(RRP US$40 - US$48)

Here's a bit of an oldie, but still a goldie.
Happy Sunday. :-)

'Black Sun' is a choreographed projection of motion graphics onto dance, combining traditional and modern elements of Japanese culture and martial arts. Artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa and dancer Katsumi Sakakura (collectively known as Kagemu, the duo however disbanded April last year) have since been widely imitated by others.
