Lucas Grogan X Rittenhouse – in stores now! (my wishlist pictured above… so beautiful!)

Lucas Grogan X Rittenhouse

In a cruel twist of fate, a week after indulging in the excesses of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Melbournians then have to squeeze themselves into the latest on-trend ensemble for the annual L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival!  YES that’s right, whilst Melbourne Food and Wine kicks on until March 21st, LMFF ramps up simultaneously this week… offering Melbourne style-seekers a plethora of runways shows, fashion forums and cultural events.

SO whilst we don’t really cover fashion ‘properly’ around here, we figured it might be nice to jump on the bandwagon this week, shining a spotlight on just a handful of local fashion happenings that have caught our eye of late.

The most EXCITING fashion collab we’ve seen in a while is the Lucas Grogan X Rittenhouse range – finally in stores now!  As you know, we love Lucas’ work an awful lot around here, after interviewing him last year and stocking his beautiful artwork at The Design Files Open House.  This talented local lad is seriously going places… and he has a LOT on his plate at present…

You can check out the full Grogan / Rittenhouse range here and buy online. The Rittenhouse project is also celebrated in the excellent Fashion Loves Art exhibition at Sophie Gannon Gallery, running now until March 17th as part of the LMFF cultural calendar.  Much arty fashiony goodness to be seen – do check it out!

AND in case you aren’t Grogan’d out yet…. keep your eyes peeled for new Lucas Grogan PLATES by Douglas and Hope, PRINTS at Third Drawer Down… AND his hand-painted shop windows currently on display at Harrolds (Melbourne) and Poepke (Sydney)… SO COOL!

Mr Grogan, I think it’s time for a holiday.
