To really put a yuletide smile on your face this week, Sydney designers Friedrich Gray and Romance Was Born are teaming up with swimwear label Jemma Jube for a four-day pop-up Xmas store. On offer will be a bunch of exclusive, unseen goodies including Friedrich Gray’s new basics collection, Injection, RWB’s 2011 summer collection (plus some special release prints), and Jemma Jube’s sophisticated, figure-flattering togs, made exclusively in France (ooh la la).
The Xmas store is open Wed 15th (that's today) – Saturday 18th Decmber from 10am-7pm. Find it at District 01 74-76 The Basement Oxford Street (corner of Crown and Oxford streets) Darlinghurst.

It's a bit disheartening when the main point of discussion outside a show centres on the fact that Ben Pollitt has (gasp!) added white to his SS1011 range. It all just seemed a little short sighted on the part of the overly vocal attendees. Still, we disregard so as not to limit our garment sight too much and move into the Cargo Theatre with open minds.
Pollitt main strength undoubtedly lies in his ability to take a time-honoured cut, tweak it in the most interesting of ways and make it his own. It creates a traditional appeal that embodies a uniqueness that is definably Friedrich Gray. This range is no exception. White blouses flow over the top of high-waisted black lambskin leather minis. Sheer black maxi dresses are layered over white ones. White lightning bolts snaked down the front of garments. An edgy sophistication unites this unisex range.
