Making The Cut

When Neiman Marcus recently asked me to put together some of my favourite keys pieces from this season’s trends it was a no brainer.  You see I’ve had a lot of experience at shopping online  .. uh hem .. product testing and trend forecasting, so I would hope that by now I can officially add ‘Professional Shopper’ to my […]

A Fine Line

We have all heard the old saying that sometimes less if more… and i’m not just talking about clothing, when it comes to accessories it’s the smallest pieces that can pack the biggest punch. If you ask me nothing completes a look like the perfect stack of fine rings or the simplest of necklaces, just throw in […]

Back To Bassike’s

  Turning up the heat literally , the temperature here has been in the high 30’s this week and it’s been hot enough to fry an egg on top of your leather duffle bag..not that that will be happening any time soon.  In times like this I  like to head to wearing pieces that are […]

Kohei Nawa

Forever a fan of visual artist Kohei Nawa I thought it was time to share some of his beautiful work.  Kohei is most known for his ‘Pixcell’ series in which he encrusted animals and objects with millions of tiny glass beads, referencing computer screen pixels and the molecular structure in which they’re comprised of.  One of my favourite […]

Double Denim

Fresh clean whites and trans-seasonal denims, we love a relaxed double denim combo.. so fresh so clean ..  denim shirt: Saint Laurent or affordable option here  .  white bralette: T by Alexander Wang  .   shark tooth necklace: Givenchy   .  aviator sunglasses: Ray Ban  .  jeans: J Brand  .  perfume: CK one by Calvin Klein  .  watch: Michael […]

Flipside

Taking the Parisian chic to the street thank you very much Andreea Diaconu and Vogue Spain .. model: Andreea Diaconu  .  photographer: Benny Horne .  stylist: Sara Fernandez  .  Vogue Spain

Off Duty

Somewhere back in the past I have memories of high school culottes that might be enough to scar you for life .. almost.  The association between the shin length short and authority have since faded away and given in to a much cooler version .. think off duty models in culottes and sneakers .. just […]

Mistaken Identity

There’s nothing better than relaxed suiting and the perfect balance of boy meets girl.  We’re forever in love with this Tomboy style chic and there’s no better way to start the week ..  model: Violette D’Urso  .  photographer: Scott Trindle  .  Miss Vogue December 2014

Sunday Sanctuary: White Out

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying ‘creativity needs space to breathe’, and for me there is no better space for creating than a beautiful white room filled with bright natural light. If you ask me, this kind of Sanctuary shouldn’t just be kept for Sundays…Xx Houzz  .  Monoqi  .  Le Fashion  .  Pinterest  .  Tumblr

By Chance

 There’s magic in a good knit, oversized and slouchy or fitted and slinky we’re all obsessed around here by the textures and feel of a good knit.  Thanks to one of my favourite stylists Sarah Smith for putting this story together for Elle Australia we can’t wait for winter .. model: Louise Mikkelsen  .  photographer: […]

Force Of Nature

You might already recognise this face but if you don’t already meet the beautiful Louise Mikkelsen. We’ve all heard the phrase Great Dane and now you know where it comes from.   Denmark’s 2013 Next Top Model winner has been in Australia of late and picking up some incredible gigs.  Amongst shooting for Elle Australia […]

Pistol Whipped

The concise Oxford Dictionary considers a ‘Saint’ as one who is acknowledged as being holy or virtuous, regarded highly by others and worthy of religious worship.  It would only appear fitting then that the atelier’s of  Yves ‘Saint’ Laurent be the mastermind creators of the kind of mini dress that could make a French man blush. […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Sea Bed

After a long and very hot weekend here .. 37 degrees C and counting, we could think of nothing better than curling up in one of these tubs and soaking up the refreshing views.  There’s something to be said for a little saltwater therapy .. Zucchetti. Kos  .  Le Sirenuse  .  Sharyn Cairns  .  Pinterest  […]

Chanel N˚5

As Gisele Bunchen paddled into the surf with a black Chanel surfboard underneath her in the most recent Chanel N˚5 campaign by Baz Luhrmann, all that we could think was that’s “The one that I want”.  With this magnificent campaign in mind I recently put pen to paper to create an illustration for Chanel featuring their model […]

Lions Share

There’s something said for a picture speaking a thousand words.. or was that a T-shirt?  Either way the object of today’s look is about keeping things short, sweet and simple.  I happen to almost live in these Acne trousers, in the day time it’s with slides in the night it’s with a sleek pump, the […]

Well Balanced

Our current obsession .. those New Balance 410’s in this season’s updated cloudy grey and our favourite Mansur Gavriel reworking the perfect leather backpack.. Thursday’s never felt so good ..  grey coat: Rika (on sale)  .  silk cami: Acne ‘Alec’  .  silk bralette: Saint Laurent  .    aviator sunglasses: Ray Ban  .  nail polish: Essie   […]

Shadow Dancer

Only the forces of nature could create a backdrop this perfect and the same mother of creation may be held responsible for our long limbed beauty Suzy Woo who you might remember meeting here  once before.  You see where I come from may be slightly isolated and a technically a little uncool in the fashion stakes but […]

The Trio Effect

Sometimes you just wake up and don’t want to have to think too much about serious farshun.  Jane Birkin, Daria Werbowy, Caroline De Maigret .. some of my favourite ladies in the fashion stakes have mastered the art of the off duty look.  Trousers are always a O.D staple and let’s not forget a large pair […]

Between The Lines

Let’s be honest I don’t wear a lot of colour, chambray shirts and khaki are about as exciting as it gets around here in the colour department, but I think it’s an exciting new step considering in the past I was all about black and white. So 2015 will be a new year for this lady […]

Evergreen

Just the right amount of Isabel Marant and Celine to get us excited.  We’re in love with the editorial from Elle Croatia mixing the perfect selection of winter coats with the best of winters wooly knits .. Elle Croatia January 2015  .  model: Alison Nix  .  photographer: Djamel Boucly

Acne

This is where I would normally insert the emoji for the running man, highly appropriate for the images above and additionally for my life in general now that I’m back in the Oracle Fox drivers seat.  People always wonder what I wear on a normal working day, well if I was to be honest we […]

Up Front

Anything that’s good enough for Kate Moss is good enough for us around here.  It doesn’t take an army of genetically blessed amazonians to work out that CK rock the best everyday smalls in the business.  The tightey whitey’s with the power to cover all of your ‘bases’ we’ll be rocking these babies all summer long.. thank […]

Burberry Sundance

  Welcome to 2015! With a holiday tan and a midriff that saw one too many mojito’s what else does a girl wear but a Burberry LBD.  You see we all know that the Burberry brand is famous for it’s trench coats but something I need to share with you is the magic of a […]

White Christmas

It’s the night before christmas down here in the Southern Hemisphere.  Wishing y’all a very merry christmas and I hope that you’ve been good for Santa and if not don’t worry you know what they say .. If you can’t be good be good at it .. xx style.com  .  wildfox  .  tumblr  .  oracle […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Swedish Solstice

  There’s something about the Swede’s, they just always get it right.  We’ve obsessed with this light filled apartment, the black and white artworks and the soft grey furnishings, just a few tips to pick up from the nation that owns white interiors like no other.  Oh and the addition of our favourite lluminate Z1 lantern light […]

Second Guess

Lately this outfit has been my uniform .. kind of appropriate when you think about the military connotations since I’ve always liked a man in uniform..no offence Sammy, high vis vests can be sexy too I guess.. xx military coat: Saint Laurent  .  shirt: Asos  .  leather pants: Isabel Marant  .  bag: Givenchy ‘Antigona’  .

Oracle Fox 2014-12-17 12:05:45

Somewhere between New York and Paris I met a girl with a fierce set of eyes and the kind of style that you envy, not because she necessarily has the best wardrobe you’ve ever seen but just in the way she put it together.  You know that girl I’m sure.. she doesn’t always brush her […]

Love Lost

Somewhere between New York and Paris I met a girl with a fierce set of eyes and the kind of style that you envy, not because she necessarily has the best wardrobe you’ve ever seen but just in the way she put it together.  You know that girl I’m sure.. she doesn’t always brush her […]

Language Skills

  Just be sure to know that if you were a shirt that says you speak French that everyone in Paris is going to talk to you like you know you stuff and don’t worry if you don’t speak the language good old fashion charm and a pair of  Isabel Marant leather pants speak enough French for […]

PFW Show Highlights

Every season Paris Fashion Week seems to know how to step it up just that little bit more and this Spring Summer 2015 was no exception.  With the added honour of being the MATCHESFASHION Guest Buyer for PFW 2015 this season was going to be a big one, not just in the amount of appointments but […]

Sunday Sanctuary: The Line NYC

  The folks at The Line NYC know a thing or two about being sleek, ‘The Apartment’ is not only the kind of home that dreams are made of, but actually a showroom where you can purchase all the incredible treats you set your wide eyes upon. Where better to spend your hard earned dollars than this beautiful […]

Femme Fatale

I have a sister from another mister and her name is Barbara Bui.   You see Barbara isn’t just one of Paris’ favourite contemporary designers but her laid-back rock chic vibe speaks to girls like moi all around the globe.  Since I was recently in Paree I thought it only too fitting to team up […]

Paris Rooftops

Is there no better rooftop in the world than the rooftops of Paris?  If you’re answering yes then I strongly advise that you climb those B&B 10 flights of stairs the next time you decide to visit Paree.  Let’s be honest it’s always quite a climb to get to the top floor of any Paris […]

Lust List

After a blurry last six months I’m finally back in my office again, the domain where creativity always seems to flourish and I’m so happy to be able to put together some beautiful content for you guys.  I know it might sound like a lie but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t actually even […]

Close Call

We all know the saying ‘keep it simple’,  however with the world at our fingertips these days it can be easy  to forget, sometimes all you need is bare feet, soft silhouettes and perfectly cast shadows to create the most beautiful of images .. Of course a dose of the Magdalena Frackowiack never goes astray either. model: Magdalena Frackowiack  .  photographer: Ward […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Sheer Genius

Filtered natural light, parquetry floor board and the most beautiful collection of simple art pieces .. we’re obsessed with the contemporary apartment and it’s understated charm .. Studio Oink  .  Pinterest  .  Tumblr

Heart Breaker

  In the words of Led Zepplin .. ‘hey fellas have you heard the news, our favourite girl is back in town’.  You see it’s not that Australia’s most eponymous brand for the best basics around Country Road, had forgotten our need for accoutrements, it’s just that it was finally time to put the wheels in motion. […]

Francois

Off duty is a word we throw around all to often, to be honest I don’t believe that there is a day in this industry that you could call off duty.  I can think of the days that I’ve allocated to sipping lychee martini’s on the sand and have ended en route to an airport for some […]

She’s Like The Wind

It’s been a long time coming and I’m so excited to share with you that the love child of Oracle Fox, the ORACLE FOX JOURAL, is now live!  For some time I’ve wanted to put together a site that sits within Oracle Fox, purely as a curation of exclusive editorial content from some of our favourite photographers, […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Illuminate

An obsession with these lights has lead to me recently purchasing 3 of them .. I know for some reason the Shad can never do things in halves.  The Ay Illuminte Z series are a favourite around here and they don’t just look good in the day time, trust me.  Putting a whole new spin on the […]

Michael Kors Escape

ESCAPE or to ‘Escape’ and break free from confinement or control as per the Oxford Dictionary, is a term that Michael Kors knows best.  Who else but MK and his band of jet setting devotees would have a better handle on escaping reality to get away from the everyday rat race.  When I was recently approached by this eminently […]

The Classics

There are 3 things that I believe every girl should own, actually there are many things although just 3 that I believe  she shouldn’t live without.  Firstly a classic button up shirt that can take you from beach hangs to lunch at your favourite restaurant, a leg flattering pair of ankle boots and a duffle bag for carrying […]

Lazy Days

It’s 37 degrees c today,  just one of those days to roll around the bed in minimal clothing and heat things up .. model: Louise Mikkelsen  .  photographer: Henrik Adamsen  .  Nowearland 

Whitewash

So It Goes magazine has become on of my new favourites delivering beautiful and original editorials in a clear voice that is distinctly it’s own. While I am currently sweltering under an unseasonably warm sun,  I wouldn’t mind being this girl, on this beach underneath THOSE white cliffs… too good x model: Zoe Huxford  .  photographer: James Perry  .  So […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Brooklyn Base

Chandeliers, parquetry floors and bright natural light, the perfect surroundings for the creative mind.  We can all take some simple ideas from this Brooklyn apartment firstly don’t throw away those old issue’s of Russh and secondly your boyfriends guitar can come in handy for more than just music.. we love .. Line T. Klein  . […]

Rolling Stone

I’m guilty and I know it.  It’s been a while since I’ve put together a shoot for you my beautiful friends, and thanks to your feedback I know that you’ve been anticipating something special.  With all of the collaborations and travel in recent months I thought it was time for some creative output and to get […]

The Getaways

When the going gets tough the tough go to Byron Bay.  I don’t know how it could be possible but this year seems to have gone faster than any year before and it was time to make a run for it.  With the end of the year not nearly close enough in site, I recently […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Paulina Arcklin

I’m sure you would have seen some of these beauties floating around the pinterest-sphere, the beautiful work of interiors photographer and stylist Paulina Arcklin stands out amongst the crowd in the best way possible. Paulina is welcome to come over to place anytime and add some of her minimalist wonder to my floor space, we can […]

Retrograde

Anya what can we say.  It’s been some time now but the last time I worked with Anja Konstantinova was too much fun, this chic is not only one mega babe but moves like the wind.  Thanks to the team at Marie Clair UK for this editorial and the beautiful raw beauty of one of […]

Sheer Force

Bonded, belted, tied up and layered not matter how you choose to wear your leather there’s something here for everyone.  Take stylist Calyan Atinc’s advice and experiment.. you just never know your boundaries until you try .. model: Stephanie Cook  .  photographer: Koray Parlak  .  stylist: Caylan Atinc  .  XOXO The Mag

Reverse Psychology

  Trust Vivienne Westwood with her unique style of creativity to create a button up shirt to be worn backwards.  Only Vivienne and perhaps Tom Green could pull off the ‘backwards man’ approach and totally get away with it.  You see sometimes we have to remember to keep business at the front and the party out the […]

Duty Calls

  I have to admit and I know that you will too.. we like to shop..girls that is, the female species.  You see it’s almost as though something was planted deep down in the DNA of our double helix well before man (ah hem humans should say) even held one of those small plastic cards that are the […]

On Point

As you may have figured out by now that there is nothing I love more than a sleek, all black outfit, just add some leather along with some favourite timeless accessories and you have my essential daily uniform. If you ask me, all black is never boring as long as you have a few chic wardrobe essentials […]

The Saint

As far as I’m concerned, the Saint Laurent ‘Le Smoking’ Tuxedo is one of fashions greats, an icon that I don’t think will be matched any time soon. Minimal, chic, androgynous and perfectly tailored, this puppy will never go out of style.  It’s always strange the first time that you wear a head to toe […]

One & Only

I know that I’m not the only one that’s identified a current obsession with the oversized single earring.  Next on the radar this spangled baby from Celine.. we can always trust Pheobe to set our hearts racing .. Illustration: Amanda Shadforth

Sure Thing

Sunday Sanctuary: Mirror Mirror

We all love a good mirror let’s be honest, and I swear it’s not even about vanity.. there’s just something magical about the right mirror that can change the entire look of a room.  Vintage, Art Deco, super modern or grouped in a collection on the wall, we hope that you’re inspired .. happy Sunday […]

The Thick Of It

Oversized knitwear never goes out of fashion, who wouldn’t say no to a slouchy cashmere cardigan on a cold and windy day.  Even if you’re in the northern hemisphere I suggest that you always keep a good knit by your side, you just never know when you’ll find yourself in need of a pair of […]

Merve Ozaslan – Collage Artist

Turkish born Merve Ozaslan has a way of seeing things that none of us would usually see.  There is something magical about an artist who can take the everyday or in the case yesterday and interpret it to represent something else all together.  I’m especially a fan of the buildings embedded with seascapes, I wonder […]

Je Parle Francais

A day off in Paris should consist of certain things … brunch at L’Avenue (I strongly recommend the berry pancakes), an afternoon spent at the Louvre followed by some people watching in the Tuilleries (even though those green lawn chairs are slightly uncomfortable they’re equally conveniently instagrammable) and lastly drinks and dinner by candlelight in one of […]

Desert Storm

There’s something simple and beautiful about these images by photographer Cameron Hammond.  Simplicity can sometimes be the key in good story telling, leaving the observer to descipher their own meanings to the images.  Add all those ingredients and the super babes Lola McDonnell and another favourite Jana Kruger who I once styled and creatively directed […]

High Expectations

There was a time when I felt like the ‘pleat’ conjured images of girl guide uniforms or even Britney Spears, don’t deny that you don’t know what I’m talking about.  Well if it’s possible, aversion has turned to affection and the pleat is currently on high repeat. Crimpy, boxy and even leathery there is all kinds of […]

Utilitarian

There is something to be said for a good coat, no?  I don’t know what happened but in the last 12 months this area of my wardrobe quadruped in size literally.  Perhaps it was the return of  nouveau-grunge laying or just the fact that I realised that I only had one coat in my whole […]

Elle Style Awards

It’s hard to believe but it’s now just on 4 years since I began Oracle Fox.  My very first workspace was probably similar to so many of you, a card-table sized desk facing a wall covered in aspirational tear sheets and magazine images.  Naturally based on the fact that I was still currently a visual […]
