Best known for her work for Victoria’s Secret, Melbourne born and raised model Shanina Shaik took a minor break from her hectic NYC schedule this week to fly home to shoot a campaign in Sydney.
Shanina, a big fan of ours, took some time out to see our upcoming collection: The Divine and give us the nod of approval on the pieces she loves.
The collection is released in 2 weeks but we’re giving you a sneak peek with Shanina today wearing The Victory Zipsuit.
If you’re quick today you MAY even find The Victory for sale in ourE-Boutique today ( a sneaky week earlier!)
It seems that upon my return from Bali I find myself reminiscing over sun kissed skin, tropical weather, jungle wandering, ocean swims and the sweet aroma of incense filling the air.
There is something so incredibly unique about Bali that just keeps calling me back.
I have travelled all over the world and yet I have managed to call Bali a second home, as if it were a summer house we vacation to on family holidays. So I thought I would share with you, some of the wonderful memories I have from my last trip.

The latest Resort13 collection ‘Greaty 180′ from Sass and Bide has us in a trance. There is a lot to be said about the elegance and flirtatious nature of the collection but it seems the campaign says it all. Featuring the stunning Cassi Van Den Dungen each photograph is fun, playful and clever. The garments strong structural elements seen through the use of darker hues, monochrome designs, metallic and lace, is perfectly paired with the whimsical yet raw background theme of the campaign. We absolutely love it. Take a look for yourself, we think you will agree.

My earliest memories of hats aren’t the fondest. I always remember long days in the sun when I was younger and Mum forcing me to wear this dorky fluro cap with the flap on the back, to keep the sun off my neck. Even at a young age I was fashion conscious and kept telling mum how incredibly daggy she was making me look. I am sure that from an adults perspective I looked adorable but needless to say I was never impressed with Mum and Dads hat choice.
But alas, I grew up (thank god) and got to choose my own hats. Now I have a very strong bond with the hats I choose. Why? Well I am quite small, so I do battle to keep a hat on my head without it being ruined by the wind, blowing off my head and into the ocean or the bushes or even on the road. So you can imagine that when I find a hat I love and that fits….I am a happy girl.
Currently I am loving Lack Of Color. Their selection of wide brimmed hats in different colours, is not only on trend but perfect for the impending scorching heat of the Australian summer. One must look stylish whilst being sun smart. One of the things I love about Lack of Color is that they sell the option of hat filler! So for tiny humans like myself who have a mini head, you can line the hat with hat filler so that it neatly and comfortably fits your head without your hat flying off into the sunset. Bonus!
My pick? The Montana Midnight Muse
Jump on their website to shop Lack of Color and be sure to follow this gorgeous label on Instagram @lackofcoloraus.
A hat can say a lot about a person. Just make sure its not fluro and daggy like my childhoods.
Spring has sprung which means the Spring racing season has begun in Australia. There is nothing like going to the races. The individuality and elegant style of race wear is classic and timeless. It is one of the few occasions where the more daring and outrageous your hat or fascinator, the better. As we saw in Spring Fashion week Richard Nylons millinery designs had people in awe and have certainly inspired some authentic and fabulous headwear this season. Get creative, make your own hat or fascinator, you don’t have to spend a lot to look good.

Here at We Are Handsome we often have the absolute pleasure of travelling around the world following an endless summer. With travel comes the valuable experience of seeing other cultures and ways of life. It genuinely broadens the mind and provides you with experiences to grow from as a person. One of the most valuable lessons I have learnt from travelling especially in third world countries, is not to take for granted our way of life back home. When faced with the reality of the immense poverty; 1.4 billion people struggle on a day to day basis to provide the basic human needs in life, it certainly puts things into perspective and little worries become instantly trivial.
It has also provoked the humanitarian within me and in my day to day efforts from fashion, blogging to teaching, I try to do my part by being informed of the current global climate and all that it encompasses from politics, economics, wars and famine. Having family whose background is from a third world country, the issue of extreme poverty and inequality is one I am an advocate for.

I’m going to play a song for you, but first I want you to picture this. You’re at a garden party in someone’s backyard on a Sunday afternoon. It’s late summer. The men are in light linen suits, and their jackets have been abandoned over the backs of wooden chairs that sit in groups, unoccupied around the yard. The women are barefoot, wearing floral dresses, their shoes tossed aside. The sun is mellowing and the light coming through the trees has a pink tinge. The grass is a bit long, and a little breeze makes it sway and tickle people’s ankles. Everyone has had too much champagne. Under an apple tree, a woman and a man are slow dancing, cheeks pink.
OK now listen. It’s “Don’t Make Me Hold Your Hand” by Lake Street Dive. You’re going to love it.
We love Miles Aldrigde’s unique and glamorous style, here are a few our our favourite shots:

The new Kings of Leon album – Mechanical Bull – is almost out and we’ve been listening to the stream on itunes almost constantly since last week when it appeared. For me, it’s a return to form for one of the new world’s great rock and roll outfits, with a mix of strong rock songs with catchy riffs, and melodic ballads that the KOL are famous for.
You can listen at the link above – or on Spotify of course. The full album is available for purchase on Sept. 24th.
