Design Inspiration: The Orange Dot Sock by Fortis Green

Design Inspiration: The Orange Dot Sock by Fortis Green
Fortis Green’s vibrant ‘Abelthorpe’ Orange Dot Sock is based on the bold colour palette of Horace Taylor's 1924 poster titled ‘Brightest London is best reached by Underground’. Published by the then Underground Electric Railway Company Ltd, Taylor’s dazzlingly vibrant artwork still draws attention 90 years on. In last year’s celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, ‘Brightest London’ was voted as the No.1 London Underground poster of all time in a public poll undertaken by the London Transport Museum. Director of the Museum Sam Mullins states “The number of votes for Brightest London is impressive given the public had a large selection from which to choose.”

Men's Style Guide: Dressing for the Track

Men's Style Guide: Dressing for the Track

Melbourne prides itself as Australia’s style capital and for the city’s male population, the influence of the Spring Racing Carnival on their fashion choices has never been more apparent. Over the past five years, an international rise in men’s fashion sales and an ever increasing online audience for street style imagery from menswear events such as Pitti Uomo has translated into a greater interest in style for the average Aussie bloke. 

With attendance at Flemington reaching up to 120,000 people per day over the four-day event, it’s no surprise that buying a suit for the races has become a rite of passage for many Melbourne men. Over 15,000 new suits were purchased to wear during the 2014 Cup Carnival season and this year’s Spring Racing event promises to up the ante even further.

The Art Deco era was an age of travel and transportation, where travel by train, plane, ocean liner and automobile was a high-class extravagance and luxury cars became style classics of the age.
