michael zavros:

queensland art alum and numerous award winner artist michael zavros: the skill and eye shown from this talented artist is amazing.  the esthetic and usage of space and line combatted with the skill of fine portraiture makes this guy one to watch...  give it a bit and everyone in the know will be scrambling for a piece at exorbitant prices. 

rad hourani:

rad hourani: is the new designer to watch. with the makings that of fashion royalty like helmut lang and ann demeulemeester -- (or at least that's what said when they named him one of their 'top to watch' for the S/S 2008 collections) his collection is that of cool uncomplicated style.  the collection is tailored and finished to perfection, think dior homme meets rick owens.  check out his site.

the generic man:

the generic man: founded by new york based brandon day and kevin carney is "a case study in adultism"  fantastic and luxurious without all the fuss.  watch out for these guys...

adeline affre: cool jewels

adeline affre: fall line of jewels and jems is outstanding.  available at a few retailers in europe... sorry usa, you're missing out because this line is gorgeous.

"british photographer and filmmaker toyin blends artistic elements that place her work both in the past and the present, always with a distinctly sexualized perspective."

a great take on the traditional army tee: mary... enough said.
