Stolen Girlfriends Club invited us to their Summer 12/13 showroom presentation last night.
“A Stolen Girlfriends Club fashion show. I recall one night somewhere in Ponsonby. There I was… Mother of God. There I am. Holy fuck. Uh, clearly a victim of the free beers… I found myself front row. Filming girls on my iphone. Earlier, a photographer asks, “STAND STILL WHILE I TAKE YOUR PHOTO?” NO! But he got me later in the night, the cheeky fucker. So many good looking people. The show ends. I stand up and knock over my chair. A Steinlarger bottle tinkles across the floor. Where’s the toilet? I get lost back stage. More girls. Changing. Skin. Leave the iphone in the pocket. Shame, pretty clothes everywhere. Can’t find toilet. Try outside. Go past bar first on the way out. “Five beers please. For my group of friends.” Funny look from bartender. Smile. Outside. Safe, no photographers. Well dressed people giving me weird looks. Act cool. Walk away. Sip one of my beers. Strange memories on this nervous Wednesday night.”
Autumn already! And winter is less than a week away. The warm sun; the cool shade. We don’t call it ‘the fall’ here in New Zealand: nature does its best not to hint at the approaching cold; our landscapes are green the whole year round. But the wind doesn’t lie as it cuts through that old coat of yours. For the ladies we have beautiful jackets from Lonely Hearts, Therese Rawsthorne, and Lela Jacobs. For the men we have coats from Chronicles of Never, Commoners_Alike, Stolen Girlfriends Club, and Vanishing Elephant. Don’t get caught out in the rain. Warm hugs with every purchase!
