We would like to introduce you to three raddest, funnest, grooviest gals, Tan, Una, and Xiao Bai, of Groovy store, who leave judgment at the door.
Let this be some inspiration for you to play with your existing wardrobe with a new pair of eyes. You may find a new space where new, old, classic, and niche can make friends in a very cultivated way.
As the weather sinks into a foggy slumber, autumn brings a light bite to the air as we start to rug up and set up camp for the winter solstice. We bring you some inspiration for the colder months in collaboration with our pals at Revision Society who have developed a new set of versatile winter pieces, designed to adapt to the changing weather, and made completely from surplus fabrics from luxury garment production that would otherwise go into landfill.
Our friend Nigel Cabourn’s favourite summer hang out in Japan is only a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Tokyo, where the echo of cicada calls in the city are swept away with the fresh sea air on the coast. We took a local train out to the volcanic sand covered beaches of Hayama to discover the colourful seaside culture that wonderfully describes the eclectic patchwork of Japanese summer culture. It’s full of bamboo, Hawaiian prints, kayaking, and banana juice spiked with Malibu.
We’ve mixed and matched strong acetate with classic workwear silhouettes, using all the vintage from Down Under we could get our hands on. Pastel tones were the base colours for our Australiana festival, and we even managed to throw a classic pair of King Gee coveralls from the 70s for good measure.
The meeting of three really rad women, strangers at the time, from three corners of the Earth, connected by one thing. All that tingles in the air is the crunching of viennoiserie, syncopated by the ting of spoons clashing with coffee cups, and the start of conversational discovery - people trying their best to relate, be relatable, share joy, and give some kind of meaning to existence.
We’re delighted to see French label Sessùn coming forward with a super military-inspired outerwear collection. Think about heavy military coats in virgin wool, tailored to a super feminine shape to bring back elegance to the silhouette... And they didn’t miss a beat in bringing out the cable knit turtleneck back (respect).
We bring you all the winter inspiration you need fresh from London’s Army Gym by Nigel Cabourn. Think denim suits, army jackets, windbreakers, suede workboots, and you’re on the right track.
We travelled up to the salty and historic land of Holy Island in Northern England, to document some of the newest additions to the Nigel Cabourn vintage archive. We’ve patch-worked Fearnought jackets, WWII beastly overcoats, and some fantastic knitwear together to get you geared up for the cold weather.
For Cabourn fans around the world, the new Cabourn x Lybro collaboration might have popped up on the radar this year. Lybro, an iconic British workwear label established in 1927, clothed factory workers of the wartime. So when Nigel Cabourn bought rights to Lybro, that iconic yet deceased piece of British workwear history, we got really excited about the prospects of breathing life back into this great giant.
We’ve put together some classic looks that will get you from A to B, the gym to class, and off to work, all in the name of style. At Ponytail Journal, we believe this word can’t be taken too seriously, nor can the decision between a plain white oxford or one with a 3D print that requires red and blue glasses to experience fully. You’ll find our new and old friends like Atelier de l’Armee, Gitman Vintage, Merz B. Schwannen, Arpenteur, and lots of newness from Paris’ new sartorial club member, Victoire Barber Shop. Watch our day of style unfold.
