KEEPING YOU UP TO SPEED WITH THE LATEST OPENINGS, TRENDS AND DESIGNER COLLECTIONS TO LAND DOWN UNDER.
VANISHING ELEPHANT X LYNX
As our savvier readers will know (the ones who read every issue), Lynx has gone fancy. Its sleek new Lynx ‘Black’ range hit stores back in March – with stylish minimal packaging replacing memories of high-school locker rooms – and to celebrate, it’s teamed up with GQ faves Vanishing Elephant. The pair has released a new limited-edition four-piece capsule collection, inspired by the ‘Black’ fragrance and grooming range. Comprising a T-shirt, anorak, shirt and chinos, each piece is individually numbered and available now. lynxeffect.com.au; vanishingelephant.com
YOUR NEW TUX
While a rented penguin suit probably saw you through school formals, a proper, tailored tux is an essential investment for any true gent. And it’ll last forever, placing you in the best-dressed category for a lifetime of weddings and social functions. As luck would have it, Givenchy is back with its second men’s tuxedo capsule collection. Defined, masculine silhouettes, with a classic take on construction, it’s exactly what the Italian fashion house’s creative director Riccardo Tisci excels at. Available at Harrolds from August. harrolds.com.au
APC IN SYD
Following the success of its first Australian outpost, which opened in Melbourne last year, minimalist French label APC arrives in Sydney this July. All but hidden below street level in Surry Hills, the new concrete, plywood and glass store is home to the label’s full men’s and women’s collections, as well as denim, accessories and collaborations. 2/410 Crown St, Surry Hills; apc.fr
