Little Miss Fashion Icon: Emma Watson

Long ago (OK not that long ago, but on the fashion watch it’s been ages…) Emma Watson shed her Hermione Granger locks and Gryffindor cloak and transitioned into a trendsetting, globe-trotting style icon. Throughout the Harry Potter years, we’ve witnessed this transformation, from cute lil’ Hogwarts’ student to a Glastonbury-attending, rock star-dating fashionista, complete with wellies and a front row seat at Burberry. In a daydream we have such a life, but you could easily get the Emma Watson look in a snap. She’s so very conscious of up-to-the-moment trends, but Watson also sticks to classics and stylings that are sustainable and eco-friendly (thanks to her gig for People Tree). She is equal parts laid back and glamour, so when trying to follow her fashion choices, remember it’s all about balancing your carefree looks with the sultry. It also couldn’t hurt if you got a cute pixie cut…

Volcom Announces The 2012 Volcom Fiji Pro ASP World Tour Event

ASP International and Volcom (available at SurfStitch.com) have teamed up to reunite the world’s finest surf talent to one of the most insanely perfect waves on the planet with the confirmation of the Volcom Fiji Pro to the 2012 ASP World Title season.

The homecoming will mark Volcom’s first ever ASP World Title event and a much-desired return to the world-class breaks of Cloudbreak and Restaurants for the ASP Top 34.

“We are all very excited about the opportunity to host our first ever ASP World Title event in Fiji,” Richard Woolcott, Volcom CEO, said. “Having the contest at Cloudbreak, or even Restaurants, is a perfect fit with Volcom’s long history with Tavarua. This is a major step in our surfing program and it’s great to be able to support the tour and its athletes with an event in world class surf.”

After a three-year hiatus from the ASP Dream Tour, the Volcom Fiji Pro will host the world’s top competitive surfers from 2012 through 2014, with the potential for further extension from the current three-year license agreement.

“Our partnership with Volcom has grown over the last several years from their support of our athletes to the sponsoring of the ASP 5-Star Pipe event and now as a licensee for an ASP World Title event,” Brodie Carr, ASP Intl CEO, said. “Fiji truly incorporates our mission statement of putting the world’s best surfers in the world’s best waves, and absolutely enhances our tour moving forward. I’m confident that all the guys will be rapt about this addition to the ASP World Tour.”

Zimmermann Cruise 11

Australia’s iconic label Zimmermann (now available at SurfStitch.com) has teamed up with photographer Roger Deckker for their latest collection, Cruise 11. Taking inspiration from our natural surroundings – sand, water, sky and rock – this campaign was shot on the beautiful white shores of Hyams Beach.

Moving away from the glamorous, refined shots we’re used to seeing from Zimmermann, the campaign depicts a look that is a bit grittier and more moody.

The collection offers a juxtaposition of nude tones alongside fun bright colours, and floral and muted prints. Our fav – the Dreamer Frill Bikini, with its delicate floral print, unique style and soft layered self fabric frill detail. It was love at first sight!

Be taken away by the dreams of perfection in Zimmermann Swimwear.

I’m Feelin’ It: The Little White Dress

Chances are, when you’re heading out for an evening with your lady friends the first sartorial thought that comes to mind is a sexy little black dress. But don’t you think it’s time we give that bad boy a rest and opt for a number that’s equally as sultry but also super sweet? Introducing…the little white frock. Delicate, simple, and versatile, this teensy number is your new head turner. In addition to giving off a pure girly humor, white dresses can go from day to night in a snap (swap a sandal for a heel, add statement jewelry, a swipe of red on your lip and voila!). And believe me, it’s been a long time coming, but these white frocks have definitely shed their good girl status. I’ve already spotted numerous little white dresses that exhibit some extra radical features in the details department, from crochet to plunging necklines to exposed zippers. Bottom line: This season, look for your favorite dresses in whites, ivories, and neutral colors with intricate fabric detail, short hemlines, and daring silhouettes.

Splendour In The Grass Music Lineup 2011: What We’re Looking Forward To!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll have heard that Splendour In The Grass starts next week Friday and let’s just say that the lineup is pretty amazing! Splendour is the country’s most recognised festival and attracts a whole range of different types. And why wouldn’t it… nothing beats copious amounts of mud, music and the fresh open air.

So with a line-up to die for, it was super hard to narrow it down to our fav 3 bands performing. But we gave it our best shot!

The Hives

This dapper Swedish rock’n’roll band carved a niche in early 2000 and are now a staple on the indie dance floors around the world. Their music crashed onto our shores last year blowing minds and melting hearts with hits from their first album, very correctly titled; “Your New Favourite Band”. Needless to say, we love the addictive roar of their loud grungy tunes! I’ll tell you over and over, “Hate to Say I told You So” is our favourite bustling tune from this multi hit garage rock band – sure to pull up grass as thousands of feet shuffle, hop, and jump on the sweet meadow fields of the Woodford venue of Splendour in the Grass 2011.

Warpaint

When it hits 4pm on sunny splendour Friday afternoon, after sweating it out to the tunes of such bands like The Wild Beasts, Illy, and Jebadiah the 20,000 happy campers who are lucky enough to have scouted a ticket, pitched up a tent and made it into the vibrancy of the festival, will take a moment to sink into the mud and absorb the exquisite mellow sound of 4 piece Psychedelic band; Warpaint. Those who are lucky enough will be completely enticed with the gorgeous echoing voice of lead singer Emily Kokall and her band who accompany with a elegant mix of vocals, bass, guitar, drums and key.

The Kills

There is nothing more addictive than the sensual sounds of American singer, Alison Mosshard and definitive beats of British guitarist, drummer Jamie Hince. Together these two form the tantalising duo; the Kills. Filled with attitude and definition, it’s almost impossible to listen to these two mould music into melody without tapping your toes and flicking your hair to their hits such as “Tape Song”, that screams femme fatale to the ladies and punk rocker to the boys with loud short drumming and the killer tune this leading lady’s stand out voice!

Coming soon: Splendour outfit inspiration.
