Winter, winter, winter ... What a great season to dress up with layers, keep ...

5 Amazing Rooftops For A Great Winter In Melbourne

Winter, winter, winter ... What a great season to dress up with layers, keep warm with a superb fireplace and go on a trip to the mountains for some snow action ! BUT, winter is also the season of night at 4pm, minus 10 degrees in the morning {and all day}, no sunny and warm getaways, and above all, laziness !

Don't panic, we found a way for you to have a nice, fun and unforgettable winter. We picked 5 of Melbourne's best rooftops for unique nights in the city that doesn't sleep ! Drinks, food, snacks, music, we tried a few places for you and came up with these great spots.

This year is your year to enjoy the cold season !

 

1) BOMBA BAR, CBD

Located on Londsdale Street, Bomba is our top spot for great drinks and amazing food. Overlooking the city at night, the small but intimate rooftop is the one kind of place you can't but enjoy. Get yourself a glass of wine while your table downstairs is getting ready for you ...

The restaurant is located on the ground level. The same atmosphere leads the night and takes you to a trip to Spain and its fantastic little tapas restaurants. Start your meal with some croquetas, patatas bravas and an amazing jamón, then move to the main with Bomba's incredibly delicous Pedro Ximenez belly pork ... You won't regret your choice !

Bomba Bar, 103 Londsdale Street 3100 Melbourne

We advise to book a table as it gets busy at some times {rush hours are usually between 6/7pm and 9pm}.

 

 

2) NAKED FOR SATAN, Fitzroy

If you haven't been to Naked For Satan yet, you are making a huge mistake ! This rooftop is one of the best of Melbourne ! Located in a large building on Brunswick Street, Naked includes different levels. You can start with a drink and a few tapas downstairs while waiting for the elevator to take you to hell {and heaven}.

The best part is yet to come. Once you get to the top, a long bar with unique cocktails is waiting for you. You will find the restaurant area, then an easy access to the outdoor. We definitely recommend you to go straight to the terrace as we think the restaurant is not the main attraction of the whole place.

Choose amongst a variety of 25 vodkas and cocktails and get yourself the best tapas ! The must haves ? Crumbed eggplants, cheese croquettes and pork/veal/almond meatballs ...

Naked For Satan, 285 Brunswick Street Fitzroy 3065

On the weekends, Naked gets very busy and access to the roof is difficult, we advise you to get there before 7:30pm. Otherwise, go straight to the elevator and register to get access to the top {usually 30 minutes wait to elevator} and have a drink downstairs until they call your name ...

 

 

3) COOKIE, CBD

Cookie is an exception as it is not an actual rooftop. Located on Swanston Street in the same building as the Toff In Town and Rooftop Bar & Cinema, Cookie is the go-to spot for great wines and fine food. Divided in two parts {one requires booking, the other one doesn't}, it is a very relaxed and intimate place with soft lights and a great staff always available for you.

If you are early and lucky enough, you can get a table on the balcony and overlook Swanston Street surrounded by trees. Enjoy a glass of Pinot and choose between a large selection of small, medium and large dishes to share {or not}.

Cookie, First Floor 252 Swanston Street Melbourne 3000

If you don't want to book a table, try to get there early enough to not wait too long as Cookie is busy all week.

 

 

4) GOLDILOCKS, CBD

Goldilocks' rooftop is pretty small, but very charming. Access this place through the elevator that leads you to a very 19th century atmosphere with leather sofas, old and intimate booths and a beautiful wooden bar.

How to spend the best night at Goldilocks ? Have a drink on the rooftop then move downstairs for a great and chilled out time with more drinks, and more food ...

Goldilocks, Level 4 264 Swanston Street Melbourne 3000

For an easy access to the rooftop, get there early on Friday and Saturday nights.

 

  

5) ARBORY, CBD

Same as Cookie, Arbory is not a rooftop bar. But can anything beat a drink along the river ? The Yarra River is one of Melbourne's best spot for a night out. The lights and places, the drinks and food are incredible !

Have a seat close to the water and enjoy a moment of peace. Arbory offers nice food, from burgers to smaller dishes to share. Open everyday until late, the kitchen is yours and you can order as much food and drinks as you want with no limits ! If you don't have enough of Arbory, keep in mind it opens at 7:30am for some great breakfast !

Arbory, Flinders Walk Melbourne 3000

Arbory is a very easy place, no need to book a table and no real rush hours. It's open 7 days from 7:30am til late, everyday of the year.

Exclusive In Store : M-Missoni Winter 15

When we hear fashion, two countries come to our mind : France and Italy. Fine materials, talented designers, instigators of fashion for a free woman ...

When we hear Italian fashion, we think leather, shoes, savoir-faire. But we also think Missoni.

Missoni is one (or THE one) of the most creative and out of the box high end designers. Founded in 1953 in Varese, Italy by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, the company is nowadays known for its colourful knitwear and zig zag patents.

Right at the cutting edge of fashion, Tai (Ottavio) and Rosita set up a knitwear shop in the sixties, at the best moment of a real obsession for jumpers and fine knits women loved to pair with their mini skirts.

60 years later, Missoni still influences the contemporary lifestyle, now thanks to their new Home line.

In 1998 is launched M-Missoni, a younger and sophisticated line of fashion pieces for independent women who like the mother brand, Missoni.

At Oscar & Wild we pride ourselves to stock the best of Australian and international fashion labels, and feel privileged to offer our clientele a rare and unique collection of high end pieces with M-Missoni.

In order to keep it exclusive and uncommon, we have selected a small amount of styles and items, as we want our customers to be as unique as M-Missoni.

Cardigans, knits, skirts and dresses are part of this Winter's collection we have selected for you as an exclusivity in our stores. As to remain this unique, the collection will only be available in store ...

 

Fore more info call us on (03) 9853 8887 or (03) 9939 4841

M Missoni is available at our Kew and Camberwell stores.

Street Looks : What All Girls Were Wearing At The Latest Fashion Week

We always want to make sure we bring the latest fashion trends and styles, and to do so, we have our everyday routine. Weekday {early} mornings are dedicated to googling and exploring fashion magazines to find the real trends of this Winter 2015.

From US to French papers, we found one subject we cannot avoid talking about : the Fashion Week. Was was to noticed {more than runways} is these statement and must have pieces all fashionistas were wearing. Whether it is a beanie, a pair of sneakers or a jumper, they all had the ONE trend on.

Here's the list of our winter must haves ...

Source : GlamourParis Magazine

 

1) Adidas Superstar

After the popular Stan Smith come Superstar. These sneakers were seen on most bloggers and are this winter's super trend. The kick style is still going on !

 

2) Fringes

This coming season is all about a 70's revival and we cannot miss the main trend : fringes. Jacket, accessories, boots ..., leather or suede, long or short, fringes give this hippie twist to a neutral look.

 

3) Denim & Chamois

Another trend from the 70's is the mix of denim and chamois leather. Pair flare jeans with a chamois suit jacket and you're off to a new season back to these years of disco music ! It's an unmissable look for this coming spring ...

 

4) Flare Jeans

Flare denims are back on trend and designers have understood the real potential of this must have piece. Seen on most runways, flare jeans will remain a basic for the next seasons. Easy to pair with leather sandals and a camisole in summer or boots and a leather jacket in winter, they are the new skinny jeans ...

 

5) A colourful Coat

A new way to not see winter in black and grey !  A colourful coat is the best piece to brighten up any outfit this season. To forget about the cold, get a coloured coat !

 

6) Ankle Jeans 

We don not make any difference between winter and summer when it comes to denims. Don't be scared to show your ankles with a nice pair of ankle boots in winter, it is the most feminine look you could get. Wear it high, crop and pair it with flat or heeled boots.

 

7) Maxi Hood

Winter can be so cold we need to keep warm. Nothing beats a great coat with a massive hood ! Rain or snow, not one thing will get through a warm and big hood.

This season has been one of our most exciting and favourite ...

Designer Crush {By Malene Birger}

This season has been one of our most exciting and favourite seasons since the last 3 years ! Every single of our brands has brought to us the best of fashion with quality, stylish pieces, structure, femininity and chic.

This Winter 15 is also for us the opportunity to discover new labels and get involved in bigger collections.

One of the greatest surprises we've had is our now favourite brand By Malene Birger. Danish designer launched her first collection in 2003 and offers contemporary classics she created with passion and love. Birger's dress sense led her to create essential and timeless pieces for every woman. Her european inspiration is the key to her success.

With a distribution in more than 40 countries, By Malene Birger has become an unmissable label all celebrities and bloggers die for. Her Winter 15 campaign is presented by model Freja Beha Erichsen.

 

By Malene Birger Winter 15 is now available in store and online at www.oscarandwild.com. Call us on (03)9853 8887 or (03)9939 4841 for more info.

Winter 15 : It's All About Chic {Contrasts}

We are slowly getting into our winter collections and all we can say is it's all about colour contrasts. Fashion teaches us never to wear more than three colours on the same outfit {or we would look like Christmas Trees}.

Our opinion is nothing looks better than a two colour combo. The chic is to mix black and white, tones of greys, white and grey .... and so on. Why dark colours only ? Why not wear olive green with white and burgundy ? You can definitely mix the tones you want and create a great outfit as long as all colours are mixed properly. 

Dark means chic, timeless and structured, everyone can wear black or grey. These colours are flattering and very classic. Get some inspiration with the best looks worldwide ...

Our 7 Best Breakfast Spots In Melbourne

Melbourne = coffee shops overload. There are so many places to enjoy a good coffee and some nice food we get completely confused. One suburb includes more than 100 coffee shops and restaurants ! How to not get lost ?

The thing we hate is spend hours walking in the streets, looking at menus, going back and forth and never knowing where we want to go. Time goes and after an hour, we are still here, starving and desperately in need of a coffee.

We know this feeling too well and want to help you a bit with 7 of our favourite spots. From St Kilda to Brunswick, discover the best of Melbourne coffees and foods, and the most unique decors and atmospheres ! 

 

1) MASTIC, Kew

Mastic opened a month or so ago and belongs to Hellenic Republic, George Calombaris' Master Chef judge restaurant. This little cafe is a definite must go for its industrial and warm decoration ! As breakfast, Mastic's granola is a pure obsession with a mix of cereals, grains and a smooth yogurt. Get yourself a cappuccino for the soft foam and delightful taste of it in one of their design and cute little cups.

Mastic, 26 Cotham Road, Kew 3101

 

2) JOURNEYMAN, Chapel Street

Chapel Street is basically one of our favourite ever spots for food. There is always a nice place to go that will leave us speechless for either decoration or taste. Journeyman has got everything !

We fell in love with the industrial deco (again) and love this cool atmosphere with big long tables everyone can share.

Order a Crispy Pork Croquette from the breakfast menu : two pieces of pork on toasted muffins with hollandaise sauce. Yum !

Journeyman, 169 Chapel Street, Windsor 3181

 

3) GALLEON CAFE, St Kilda

Galleon has got everything : a cute 60/70's atmosphere, great food and drinks, perfect location near the ocean. On a sunny warm day, have a seat outside and enjoy the sunlight with some fresh milkshake.

Our breakfast combo : caramel milkshake and smoked salmon and avocado bagel. Just perfect !

Galleon cafe, 9 Carlisle Street, St Kilda 3182

 

4) DEAD MAN ESPRESSO, South Melbourne

South Melbourne is a very peaceful, relaxed suburb of Melbourne. A nice day in South Melbourne goes with a walk through the market, some good shopping and a breakfast/lunch at Dead Man Espresso. Located off Clarendon Street, Dead Man found the perfect location : quiet and sunny.

Wether you seat in or outside, you will be amazed by the atmosphere and decor. Cappuccino, latte, strong coffee, every drink tastes amazing ! For a late breaky, try the green pancakes, a delicious mix of veggies with poached eggs and salmon.

Dead Man Espresso, 35 Market Street, South Melbourne 3205

 

5) Beaver's Tail Social Club, St Kilda

Owned by a lovely couple, Beaver's Tail is a must-go spot in St Kilda. Locals like to have a coffee/breakfast before work and lunch on a full work day, and tourists are always delighted to grab a latte before a long going around day.

Everyone knows Beaver's Tail in St Kilda for the couple's warmth and kindness but also for their great coffee and food. Our top 2 food : their special pastries and chicken/avocado sandwiches. 

Beaver's Tail Social Club, 160 Barkly Street, St Kilda 3182

 

6) CODE BLACK COFFEE, Brunswick

This very industrial place is located right at the heart of Brunswick, close to Sydney Road and its live concert pubs. This big black box looking like a depot hides a huge space filled with long wooden tables and a very muted atmosphere. Coffees are a real delight and the house made crumpets with vanilla syrup take you to heaven !

Code Black Coffee, 15/17 Weston Street, Brunswick 3056

 

7) RUE DE CREPERIE, Fitzroy

Rue De Creperie is this kind of shop that brings many memories back to your mind : the smell of hot crepes getting cooked, the childish decoration with cute drawings on the walls ... This new tiny little shop in Fitzroy will soon be your favourite spot for a Saturday breakfast or your weekly dinner out.

For some perfect sweetness, we suggest you to try the Wicked Snickers and Thailand crepes. Coconut, banana, caramel, vanilla ice cream ..., all the best of ingredients are mixed together for the best ever taste in your mouth.

Rue De Creperie, 360 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy 3065

Summer 15 Trend : California Style

It's been a few seasons now the Californian lifestyle is a must trend. On the fashion side, designers create a real summer look with a West Coast inspiration. But was is the Californian style ?

It is a mix of different looks : casual, feminine, comfortable, soft, light. Summer is the season we do not want to be bothered wearing too many pieces, too many colours, too many materials. A proper summer look is easy and chic. How to get inspiration for a great outfit ? A west coast look needs a lace top, a white dress, denim shorts, a maxi dress, fringes, light colours, ankle boots and a hat.

Here are a few LA based bloggers you can follow to get inspired :

- Sincerely Jules

- Anine Bing

- Song Of Style

- Damsel In Dior

Patrizia Pepe Does It For A Good Cause

Today more than ever, we have to be aware of the world's uneasiness. Technology, money, business ..., they turned us into selfish, self-centered, unconscious people. The more money we get, the less other countries have.

In a world we should all have everything we need and not be missing a thing, millions of people die of starvation, diseases, illness, bad physical condition. It is important to turn around and be aware of what's happening in 2014.

Doing a good thing for people in need is one step out of a billion to help our world feel better.

 

This year, Patrizia Pepe, one of our best sellers in store has decided to offer its support to Doctors Without Borders. The brand will be allocating the Christmas gifts fund to the organisation's life-saving action in South Sudan which has among the highest mother and child mortality rates in the world. The aim of the action is to reduce infant mortality through free, high quality mother and child care. Patrizia Pepe's contribution will have a significant impact on the beneficiaries of the DWB's medical action.

- 12500 children will be vaccinated against measles, currently the leading cause, along with malnutrition, of mortality among children under the age of 5

- 100 expectant mothers will be able to give birth safely and save their child, through the purchase of medical kits containing medical instruments and supplies

- 37 severely malnourished children will benefit from a comprehensive life-saving treatment based on ready-to-use therapeutic food

- It will be possible to purchase a water purification kit , for a total of over 7000 litres of water, an essential means of preventing the spread of contagious and life-threatening diseases.

 

We are proud to support Patrizia Pepe in this gesture.

Make something count, help others.

One Day, One Brand {Penny Black}

As it is Autumn in the other side of the world, it gets pretty obvious for us to start getting our new Fall/Winter collections. Summer is still not here, but we are already very excited to see what Winter 2015 has brought to us in terms of fashion and trends.

About two seasons ago we discovered a great Italian brand now known worldwide : Penny Black. Founded in 1978, Penny Black is now one of the most popular women fashion brands in Italy.

The brand focuses on high quality garments, and is seeking a sophisticated but easy-to-wear style.

Chic and feminine, each collections reflects the European woman as she is and brightens up any figure.

 

Here for you ladies is a small peak at what Oscar & Wild has selected for you this Fall.

Weekend Escapade : Phillip Island

Weekends are always a good time to go for a little escapade. We all need this kind of moment, away from work, daily life and more than everything else, away from a busy city.

Phillip Island is the one place to go for two main reasons : only 2 hours away from Melbourne (which is perfect if you don't want to go too far) and the landscape and town make you feel like you are in another country.

This quiet little island is a peaceful area, close to beautiful surfer beaches and the wildlife. But as it is a pretty small place, what are the interesting things to do ? Where are the nice spots to go ?

 

Here's what you can do in a two days time :

The town is not very big, so there is obviously not a lot of restaurants and coffee shops. But you'll see there are a few in Cowes (north of the island). The Hotel is basically the main place as it is a restaurant, pub and it welcomes live bands and DJs on Saturday nights.

Mad Cowes Cafe is a lovely place to go for a nice breakfast. Close to the beach, it is a relaxing spot with good coffee.

If you want to move a little bit around, definitely go to Smiths and Surfer Beaches. They are the one place for ocean lovers. A beautiful view and a great area if you want to take nice photos.

Don't miss the Koala Wildlife Park. You will see koalas in their natural environment and can approach them (but can't touch them). We felt like kids being so close to these little animals !

Also go to the Seal Rocks, you will get a chance to see these big seals living there, such a nice moment.

And obviously, go see the Penguins Parade ! It is the main attraction of Phillip Island. At 7:30pm, these lovely animals go out and walk through the beach. An amazing spectacle we didn't get a chance to do this time.

But our next trip to Phillip Island will start with it !

Then on your way back, stop at Wolamai beach. A stunning and breathtaking beach with an incredible view !

 

Enjoy our trip with us with these photos we were happy to take home and feel free to share your trip to Phillip Island with us !

What's New : Animal Print

The animal print has been a huge trend for the last 4 seasons and it's going to be a part of our wardrobe for a while longer !

The thing with this print is it can get very tricky. A bit too much and you look like you just got out of the jungle ! So it is all about being subtle and delicate.

What we suggest is a little touch of this print, whatever your favorite is : zebra, leopard, giraffe, snake ... Play with patterns and fabrics, and add a touch of fun with a printed scarf, bag, shoes ... It is always easier with accessories.

When it comes to clothing, try to not go too out there. Prefer a simple black knit with animal print sleeves, or if you want to get the real animal spirit, choose to go for a full print but neutral colours.

 

Here are a few outfit ideas for you ladies and some of our favorite products available at our stores.

Designer Focus : Isabel Marant Summer 15

If there is a fashion designer we are literally obsessed with, it's Isabel Marant. This French designer who started her brand in 1990 has developed an incredible range of statement pieces all bloggers and fashion lovers die for : her platform sneakers, suede boots, big chunky coats ... and much more !

Isabel Marant is one of these few designers who offer basic pieces we want to wear everyday for the rest of our life ! She know exactly the trends and always finds the right fabrics and colours for each season.

We've picked our favorite looks for Summer 15 and are already dying to get them ...

Melbourne Cup Day : We Were There

We are getting to the end of this year's Spring Carnival and we have to say it has been epic. Despite a terrible weather on Derby Day, the rest of the week was absolutely fantastic. For different reasons we only attended Melbourne Cup this year, but we are actually happy we got a chance to go, even though it was the only day.

Melbourne Cup day was, as it is every single year, a fantastic event filled with the most beautiful outfits and located on the amazing Flemington racecourse.

We booked tickets for General Admission as we wanted to be as close to the track as possible to feel and enjoy the races. The main race went really fast but was incredibly intense. Everyone felt so involved, screaming and supporting each horse.

The day never ends too late, and we were pretty happy to leave after the race as it is an exhausting day to stand on heels and under the sun !

We took a few photos and videos and we hope you enjoy them as we did on the track !

 

We have been very sorry to hear two of the most amazing horses have died on that day. RIP to the favorite Admire Rakti and beautiful Araldo.

Fashion : See The Difference {5 Looks, 5 Countries}

We have everything in this world to tell us what/who to follow. But fashion is not all about what you see, it's about what suits you, where you come from ...

You will notice fashion varies on the country you live in. Trends change every season, nothing is ever the same month to month, but it is even more obvious when you travel. We all have our own taste, even though we like to follow the latest magazines, designers ... Some pieces we like don't suit our figure and we have to go for something else, something that will highlight our body, our face, our look.

There is one thing that will always beat worldwide designers and magazines : culture. Every country has they own culture and this is where fashion comes from. You will notice looks are completely different wether you are in New York, Los Angeles or Buenos Aires. As we do not all get the chance to travel the world full time, go on the Internet and browse, it's interesting to see who wears what and where.

 

The world is made of more than 150 countries. As hard as it gets to find a look for each country, we have picked the 5 most influent cities/countries in fashion with 5 looks to make you feel how big the difference can be.

Follow what YOU like, not what people tell you to like.

 

Paris, FRANCE

French look is very dark. French women mix a lot grey, black and white and their look is always very subtle. They don't show too much, but always chose the right piece that will flatter their bodyshape no matter what.

 

 

 

London, UNITED KINGDOM

The London look is sometimes out there. Londoners like to mix colours, fabrics, prints and shapes. It can look funny and weird, but they know exactly what they do and the final outfit is always a great look. London people have their own taste and make fashion their own way, you will never see one person wearing the same knit as another one and that's the thing with this city : uniqueness.

 

 

Los Angeles, USA

In LA it's 30 degrees pretty much all the time so it gets tricky to dress for winter (but they do have a winter). Summer look is is the best to see the difference with other countries. The West Coast is a lot into a gypsy, hippie lifestyle and fashion naturally follows this life.

 

 

Buenos Aires, BRAZIL

Buenos Aires is the 'caliente' city. Brazilians love to dress up and show their perfect figure. They are very feminine and know what to wear, with a mix of colours and shapes. They do keep a latin and relax look, with a bit of hippie influence.

 

 

Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

Melbournian women are very trendy. They follow the latest magazines but know what to wear and when. The one thing with Melbourne fashion is colours and shapes. Most melbourne girls want to stand out and wear bright colours with fitted dresses or tops. They always keep a very feminine look and brighten up their pieces with make up.

Friday Topic : Spring Racing Carnival

Ok ladies, two of the most important events of the year are coming very soon. We are obviously talking about Derby Day and Melbourne Cup.

These two days are a real tradition in Victoria and it's almost impossible to miss them. We wrote a few posts about the Races and how to dress up for the event, but as a lot of new great things have arrived at both our Kew and Camberwell stores and O&W, we thought it was a good idea to give you an update of what you can wear.

We know a few of you ladies are pretty late and still don't have an outfit. Don't worry, there is always time to find the perfect look !

 

Now here are 6 pieces for both Derby Day and Melbourne Cup. Enjoy and we hope you like our styles !

Today we want to step on the next level. We want to talk about a real statement piece, this piece you invest your money in but never regret it.

This Place : Las Vegas Neon Museum

We were blown away when we first heard about Las Vegas Neon Museum. What is this place ? And why is it called a Neon Museum ? The reason is very simple : it features signs from old casinos and other businesses that were built in the city years ago.

The museum was founded in 1996 as a partnership between the Allied Arts Council of Southern Nevada and the city of Las Vegas. It maintains twelve restored signs throughout Downtown Las Vegas. Important historical pieces in the boneyard include the signage from the Moulin Rouge Hotel, the Stardust, Desert Inn and Caesar Palace as well as many others.

 

It is always interesting to discover new unexpected places like the Neon Museum. If you get a chance to travel to the USA, do yourself a favour and go see this incredible spot in Nevada !

Spring Racing Party {How We Have Fun}

Last saturday we had a great Spring racing party at our Kew store. The shop was filled champagne, drinks, cupcakes, lollies and the best DJ in town was here to make us dance all day !

It was a great opportunity for us to get to know our customers and spend some time with them in a different way. Everyone was marvellous and it was such a good fun to have so many people in enjoying a great sunny afternoon with us.

 

We hope you enjoyed this day as much as we did and we'll see you next year for another fantastic relaxed shopping afternoon.

For the time being, keep shopping the best of international and Australian brands from both our Kew and Camberwell stores then O&W by Oscar & Wild.

City Pick : Stockholm {City Of Fashion}

We know top 3 of fashion cities in the world is New York, Paris and Milan. But what we do not know is there are a lot more places where fashion gets to a high-end taste and style.

Out of these main cities, there is one we can not miss as fashion lovers : STOCKHOLM. This city of 2.2 million inhabitants and capital of Sweden is the go-to place for the best styles of the century. Once again, we are not talking about runways and new designers collections for the coming seasons, but about street style.

Stockholm is the kind of place where you won't find anyone looking the same. From colourful skirts to a full black outfit, every single person has their own style and is proud to show it. It is very interesting to look for new inspiration and get to something we would not expect. These guys mix prints, fabrics, winter and summer clothes ..., and it works amazingly !

It is finally this thing that will always blow us away : everybody dares be different. They all create their own style and are the most unique ans stylish people ever.

 

Next trip : Stockholm ! Scroll down this post and find out who wears what and how. From women to men, we have selected the coolest outfits of 2014.

Paris Fashion Week 2014 {Street Style}

As we did a few weeks ago for New York Fashion Week, we have selected the best looks of PFW this week. This year has been full of creativity, colours, new shapes ad new icons !

We are always real huge fans of street style looks as it gives us a lot of inspiration for our upcoming seasons, specially with European styles.

We know Paris is the city of fashion and this is definitely where you can find the best looks ever. Outfits are versatile, subtle and never over the top !

Europeans {and French usually} don't wear a lot of colours. They play with a lot of black, grey and white. This is what makes their look completely stylish and so simple. Black is the go-to colour for an easy outfit. What you have to know is how to make it stand out with the right accessories and pieces.

 

So here are a few black/white outfits from PFW. We hope it gives you as many ideas as it gives us for our next looks ...

We Love : Baum Und Pferdgarten {Copenhagen}

If you follow us on Instagram, you must have noticed several pictures featuring a new brand we just got in : Baum Und Pferdgarten. We are having a big crush on this Copenhagen based label founded in 1999 by friends Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave.

European brands have this thing different from others : subtle, structured, feminine yet comfortable {and casual} pieces. There is so much more we could say about European fashion. Baum is a mix of all these. They have this avant-garde sense of fashion and use it for their collections.

 

We have spent time finding the right pieces to get for both our Kew and Camberwell stores. As this label is new to us, we wanted to get the best outfits to make you stand out. From suit jackets to pencil skirts, we have made a selection of what fashion in Europe has best to offer.

Our favorite today : the suit. Feminine, flattering, boyish ... It's all you need.

What Is Summer 2014 All About ? : 5 Pieces You Need

We are getting very busy at both Oscar and O&W as a lot of new stock is coming from the USA and Europe. Many clothing pieces but also accessories and jewellery, all trendy and stylish for you to be the one Melbourne fashionista.

Today's post asks the right question : what is summer 2014 all about ? We are not talking about high end fashion {like Maison Martin Margiela, Chanel, Louis Vuitton ...} but about an every day trend. A lot of our brands show the best styles for the new season : fabric, colour, shape, structure ..., and more than anything, timeless pieces.

We all know that trends are short-lived, but we always surprise ourselves wearing the same top or shoes year after year. What we really wanted this year is to offer you the best pieces you will love to wear day after day and season after season.

 

So let's talk about the subject of the post. There are 5 items you have to have in your wardrobe this summer {and winter} : 

- a pair of jeans

- a blazer

- a casual top

- a dress

- a kimono

These 5 pieces will be your main outfits for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

But how to wear them ? It is more simple than you think. First of all, we all have a pair of jeans, whether they are skinny, straight leg or flare. We would basically advice a pair of skinny leg as it's fits every figure and it is the easiest to wear. Go for a medium dark wash as it is the one colour to wear all year.

Then comes the blazer. This piece will always finish an outfit and will give it structure and femininity, whatever other pieces you wear. Choose it black as a basic. Then get a white and/or a light coloured. It will be easier than a bright colour and you will never get bored. Do not think you can't wear a blazer in summer, you would be wrong. Pick a light fabric if you are not too sure, and you'll see you can't live without it.

Casual top : because you just need one. Get the colour you like best, just don't forget to keep it simple. And loose.

A dress : pick the one that will fit your figure and flatter your body. Maxi, mini, midi, loose or fitted, the choice is yours. Play with colours for summer and go subtle for winter.

Last but not least : the kimono. It is THE ONE piece of the summer. Perfect and timeless, you'll see you can wear it with anything, it works ! Find the right print and colour to match your skin. Then play with everything else : fringes, fabric, length ... So much to do around a kimono.

 

We have made a little selection of articles you can find at both Oscar and O&W. Enjoy, and come say hi !

Bergdorf Goodman : The Most Beautiful Window Display

Today's post is about {fantastic} window shopping. Travelling in different countries and cities is the most interesting thing with shopping as trends are very different wether you go to Europe, America, Asia or Australia. Not only people have unique styles and taste but shops and shopping centres too.

Paris and New York are two great examples of how to show trends. If you go around Paris you will be amazed by Galeries Lafayette department store, a huge building with many levels showing thousands of national and international brands.

Then there is New York : Macy's, Bloomingdales, and Bergdorf Goodman. Bergdorf Goodman is the go-to department store for luxury goods. Prada, Gucci, Lanvin, Saint Laurent ... all of the best worldwide designers are at Bergdorf.

Located on the famous Fifth Avenue, Manhattan, the store was founded in 1899 as a tailor shop by Herman Bergdorf an immigrant from Alsace in France. Edwin Goodman, a young 23-year old American Jewish merchant moved to NYC and worked as an apprentice for Bergdorf. After two years Goodman raised enough money to purchase an interest in the business which was renamed Bergdorf Goodman in 1901.

In 1914 Bergdorf Goodman became the first couturier to introduce ready-to-wear, making the business a destination for American and French fashion.

The department store we know today was born.

 

Bergdorf's window displays are some of the best in the world because of their creativity, uniqueness, and because there is always a real idea behind the window. The store gets inspired by everyday life, TV, newspapers ... There is always a way to create an atmosphere from life.

September 2014 is : Women and Technology {that's what we think it might be. We are waiting for the September issue to know exactly what it's all about !}.

Monday Food Review : David Burke Fabrick New York

Our executive buyer is currently in New York for a business trip and while working hard to bring you the best latest trends from LA and New York, she also allows herself a few treats !

Today she is sharing with us her experience at one of Big Apple's newest restaurants : David Burke Fabrick.

It is so hard finding a good coffee in New York so imagine our delight in finding not just Melbourne quality coffee but an amazing menu and great service to boot !

Try the Asparagus & Wild Mushroom Pappardelle with picked beech mushroom and mushroom duxelle, for the best home made Pappardelle you've ever had. The pasta is actually made with asparagus ! The Kale & Escarole Salad was a great accompanying dish and for the finale the most amazing apple pie ever. They bake it fresh just for you then serve it with creamy vanilla ice cream.

Friendly and attentive staff make this a delightful experience !

9 Amazing Places In The World {You Have To See}

If there was only one thing life would allow me to do I would chose travel. There is nothing more incredible and enlightening than flying around the world.

It is crazy to see how many unreal places there is on Earth. I would love to take more time to travel and discover breathtaking landscapes and amazing cultures, I think this is one of the reasons why we are alive.

I went on a few trips in my life, but not as much as I want to. I still feel pretty lucky that I had the opportunity to leave my country and go see different places. But my little travels are nothing compare to what the world has to show us.

 

More than cities, what make a country's identity and history are landscapes. They tell you so much about this place you are discovering. Meeting lakes, mountains, hills, beaches, forests ... is such a reward and it makes you pride yourself on making this decision to pack your bags and go.

Why don't we all do this once in our lifetime ? Pick one place, pack our bags, book a ticket and off we go !

 

I've been through my own experience, what I know and the Internet {obviously !} to find 9 amazing places in the world I'd love to see {or have seen}.

I hope you'll love them too and that it'll give you some ideas about your next holidays :) J.

 

1. AUSTRALIA

I have been living in Australia for 2 years and I still haven't been to the outback. I would die to drive a car on these endless roads and watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

Australia is one of the most amazing countries for its landscape. A place overwhelmed by the desert and its red surroundings. One of the most incredible places to see, a dream that comes true.

2. CANADA

It took me a while to find the perfect shot of the place I had in mind and dreams. And I think I did pretty well !

With harsch winters in most parts of the country, Canada is one of the most fantastic places to see for its outback. Lakes and forests are the main attraction in all territories as the trees and rivers make a a peaceful and relax landscape.

3. USA

There would be so much to say about the United States Of America. The country is full of amazing places and landscapes, it would take a long time to see them all.

As an old country with a prominent history and culture, America is plentiful of mountains, hills and deserts.

This picture shows a fall in Tennessee overlooking hills and woods. As Colorado Mountains, this is a must see in this state.

4. PERU

Located in South America, Peru is the third largest country in this part of the continent with a surface area of 1 285 220 km2.

The history of Peru started in 9000 BC and is well know for the Inca Empire.

If you get a chance to go to Peru, go see the Macchu Picchu {photo below}, a 15th-century Inca site located 2430 metres above sea level constructed during the period of two great Incas and that was abandoned 100 years later.

5. CHINA

With a population of over 1.35 billion, China is the most inhabited country in the world. 

The Chinese culture started from the 17th century BCE and is very popular for the Imperial dynasty that started 220 BCE.

One of the most beautiful landscapes in China is its mountains and rice growings.

6. PATAGONIA

Located at the Southern end of America, Patagonia is a region shared by Argentina and Chile. 

I have to say I barely hear about Patagonia, wether it is in the news, in newspapers or on TV. But I fell in love with this amazing landscape and will book a ticket to go there someday !

7. MOROCCO

Morocco is a small country located in North Africa close to Algeria and Tunisia. It is a very warm and welcoming country full of a strong culture.

Marrakech is the go-to city to relax in luxury hotels and enjoy a massage whilst drinking some home-made green tea with mint leaves.

But there is one thing not to miss apart from a pure and white room with air con : the desert. Do yourself a favor and book a day trip in the desert with locals and discover this quiet and peaceful part of the country. Breathtaking !

8. SWITZERLAND

Switzerland is a very small country located in Europe at the border of France, Italy and Germany.

I am European, and I have never been to Switzerland ! What surprises me with this place is the clean and pure mountains and hills. It makes you feel like you want to stay there forever in a tiny wooden house surrounded by nothing but grass and cows.

9. FRANCE

More than France itself, I am talking about South of France. The interesting thing with this country is that every single part is like a different country. Different culture, different food, different landscape.

In the North you will find beautiful chateaux, old houses, plain landscapes.

South is a bit different from that. In Provence {where I come from}, you will be amazed with lavender yards, vineyards, olive trees ... When midday arrives and sun hits the sky in summer, there is nothing better than enjoying it with a glass of Rose and watching the hills.

My favorite part of France, and not only because I come from there !

My Top 10 Favorite Spring/Summer 2014 Pieces

When you work in retail, one of the most exciting things ever is when new seasons arrive in store. I can't help going through boxes and trying to find the perfect piece to buy. I feel very lucky to work at Oscar & Wild and O&W boutiques. There is such a cool and unique choice of great pieces and brands that I can't but spend my money every week !

We all have a different taste and different styles (that's what makes fashion), and it is always pretty easy to find the one piece that matches our personality.

I get stuff from both shops, because I like to mix different looks, from a dressy top to distressed boyfriend jeans. Ok, everybody knows I am very casual, but I swear, I do buy dressy tops ! I just wear them with cool jeans and a leather jacket for a relaxed look.

 

So for you girls today, I've picked my 10 favorite Spring/Summer pieces from Oscar and O&W. Enjoy ! J.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 {Best Looks}

I am about to say something that is not surprising : I am a fashion lover ! I get an update of new trends every morning from my favorite fashion apps and blogs in Australia, Europe and the US. But when Fashion Week time comes, I am never this excited about all the new upcoming trends. Weird isn't it ?

Let me tell you something. What I love the most about Fashion Week is to stalk all bloggers and designers looks. This is how I get my inspiration from, more than the catwalk. I am a street style stalker ! I can already hear your next question : why ?

So here's my answer : watching runways is always interesting when you want to see what's the next unmissable trend (colours, shapes, looks ...). But I think it is not always easy to mix a runway piece to daily life, and bloggers are the perfect example of how to do it perfectly. 

I follow a lot of them such as Song of Style, Betty Autier, Chiara Ferragni ... They are my favorite because they have a perfect dress sense and are never too much when they mix brands, fabrics and colours.

 

I have picked some of my best looks from the Spring 15 Fashion Week. This is my runway ! J.

How To Spend A Sunny Day In Melbourne

I have to say I was very happy to have a weekend off. The weather was just amazing and I could feel spring was on its way on these days.

So after I had a look at the weather on my phone saturday morning, my friend and I decided to make the most of it by going to some different places in Melbourne.

We first decided to have a browse and some food at the Victoria Market in the city. My very first time and I was not disappointed. So many different things to see, from food to clothing and souvenirs. As soon as you enter the market, you can't help looking around and going back and forth not to miss anything. The place was so full, people everywhere buying fruits and vegetables, trying on a pair of sunglasses from one of those famous booths (I have to say I couldn't resist getting myself a pair !)

We ended up having some food in this little corner close to the main entrance. So many different types of food : Indian, Italian, Japanese ... And we couldn't leave the market without doing ourselves this favour : a hot jam donut from the white and blue van. They were just YUMMY !

 

After all this food, we decided do go towards Sydney Road in Brunswick. I like the atmosphere of this area. It's more grungy, with a punk and rock feel. I love it ! The street is full of bars and cafes, and warmth made us want to sit on a terrace with a nice coffee.

So we went to Toby's Estate. It's a lovely coffee shop off Sydney Road. A small outdoor with white wooden fences and a big indoor with a nice Italian grocery corner. From a coffee, my friend and I finally chose a milkshake !

 

I had such a lovely day, it was just great to relax and find new places to go for a sunny saturday.

I will sure find new places on my next sunny day off ! J.

It's All About Status Anxiety

Finding the right bag is as hard as finding the right pair of jeans we know we will keep for years. It is always a matter of comfort, material, shape, print ... We want a piece that is timeless and that we can wear all the time for every moment of our daily life.

We have been looking for great accessories for a while and went through many brands until Status Anxiety caught our eye.

This Australian label creates the best leather goods in town. Every single piece has a story to tell and shows amazing skills. We love the colours and all details that were made to be handy yet stylish.

This season we focused on two things : style and comfort. We picked a range of wallets and two different bag styles, from the shopping bag to the satchel. 

 

We have even added a little extra, a man's wallet, so you are sure you and your beloved one can match your Status Anxiety accessories !

 

Shop at our brother store O&W by Oscar & Wild now and online soon.

The Perfect LBD (Little Black Dress)

We were really excited about Ginger & Smart this season. Designers have worked so hard to show us an amazing range of summery dresses and we have to say we are not disapointed at all.

Summer or winter, we are always seeking the perfect LBD, and we have to say we found it.

Rhythm Addiction dress is THE piece every woman needs in their wardrobe. It's a classic knee length dress with touches of this something different we all want.

Rose gold zip at the front to add a bit of "hotness", belt to show curves in the most flattering way, silk to be able to wear it day and night, long sleeves to roll them up for a relaxed look.

There is actually nothing else we can say about the Rhythm Addiction dress, it is just perfect.

Oscar & Wild Photo a Day Challenge - JUNE 2014

How to Play...
PHOTO A DAY!

 

 

Joining the photo a day challenges is super easy and fun! The first rule is, there are no rules. It’s all about being creative and just getting involved. Everyone is welcome to play along. Yes, even you ;-)

 

Frequently asked Photo A Day questions

 

Can you tell me a bit about Photo A Day?

Photo A Day with Oscar & Wild started in June 2014. Every month we create a unique list of daily prompts and people all over the world take a daily photo, using the list as inspiration, and share it online. You can share where ever you please, the most popular places are Facebook and Instagram.

 

Why would I want to play?

It’s fun. It really is. It makes you take a little time each day to stop and take notice of what’s around you, as well as be a little creative. There’s also a rockin’ community of photo-sharers that like and comment on each others photos. Over 20 million photos have been shared to date, and even celebs like Pink, Dannii Minogue, Holly Madison and more have played along.

 

How do I share my photos?

If you’re playing on Instagram, just add the hashtag #OSCARANDWILD to your photos. 

If you’re sharing on Facebook, you can share on your own personal page, on the Oscar & Wild Facebook page

You can also share on Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, on your blog or Google+.

 

I like to be nosey. How can I see other people’s photos? Please.

On Instagram, just search for the #OSCARANDWILD hashtag to see everyone’s photos. You can meet new friends and be part of the community by liking other photos and commenting.

 

Where I can find the monthly list of prompts?

The monthly challenge list is revealed on the 1st of every month. You can find it here on our blog. Or on Facebook & Instagram.

 

I missed a day, and I failed. What can I do?

Photo a day is all about having fun. So you skipped a day, so what? It doesn’t mean you have to fall off the photo-a-day bandwagon completely. You can either just pretend yesterday didn’t happen, or you can take two photos in one day. If you skipped a whole week, then just decide whether you want to make up some days or just start on the current day. Remember, there are no rules.

 

Can you help me create a challenge just like yours?

Unfortunately, no. All the best though.

 

Can you please email me the list each month? Or can I at least get a sneak peek of it early?

Unfortunately we can’t email everybody personally with the list, and we can’t share it early. On the 1st of the month we do send out a newsletter that links to the new list so you don’t miss out. You can sign up for the monthly newsletter here.
