One of the most sought-after menswear labels
Gents, we’ve set our eyes on one of the coolest menswear labels in town. Annex offers a mix of classic styles with a contemporary twist. All pieces are tailored to perfection and compliment one’s personal style. Their latest Spring-Summer 16/17 collection boasts a range of edgy and sleek street styles – including a small range of footwear.
Stunning aerial shots of Bondi’s best
The idea behind Aquabumps came about in 1999 when its founder, Eugene Tan, combined his three passions – photography, surfing and the web. His photographs were an instant hit and soon after he opened his first gallery in 2004. Known for aerial shots of the beach, Eugene also explores unique angles, whether it is shooting from underwater, in helicopters or from a cliff in South Bondi. Be wowed by the stunning artworks in the gallery – all of which are signed by the artist himself.
