Five ways to be a fashion rebel this autumn



Fashion is putting the petal to the metal at Britomart this month

Autumn leaves might be falling, but on the racks at our fashion retailers, there’s a riotous bloom of florals that’s usually associated with spring. But we’re not complaining – in fact, we love the playing-against-type mood of the prints, which come in a palette that’s a little more subdued owing to the season, but no less fun. Click here for our full edit of flower-inspired items at Britomart.


Marlon Williams is the monumentally hip new face of Karen Walker

When it comes to enigmatic cool, Marlon Williams has it sewn up. He has that laconic country-western music rebel thing down, he’s unafraid to rock a mullet, and he appeared as himself in last year’s biggest music movie of the year, A Star is Born. So he’s the perfect choice to be the face of Karen Walker‘s new Monumental collection of sunglasses. Check out all the frames in-store now.


Get in quick for the limited-edition drop of this year’s Pony Rider jackets

Marlon’s new sunglasses from Karen will pair well with another timeless rebel classic – the leather jacket – and Deadly Ponies now has extremely limited stock of this year’s highly coveted leather Pony Rider ($1499) and the reversible shearling Pony Rider Smoker ($2899). With a cropped waist, it’s available in black, sage and natural. Try one on at the Britomart store today.


Sass & Bide’s La Rebelle collection channels Almost Famous

Over at Sass & Bide, their new Pre-Fall 19 collection is also on the rebel buzz, with the La Rebelle range celebrating the restless wild child who dances to her own beat (and mismatches tops and skirts with abandon). Animal prints, luxe fabrics, a moody palette, suggestive silhouettes and a handful of show-stoppers (like the fur-trimmed biker jacket and gold sequin dress) make this the perfect wardrobe for winter-time gig-going. Available in-store now.


If you like to keep your kicks box-fresh, the new Adidas NMD R1 is for you

Pulling on a pair of sneakers might be a lesser form of fashion rebellion than the previous items in this issue. The subtle rebellion inherent in the new Adidas Originals NMD R1 ($220), however, is that although they have the silhouette of a running shoe, they’re really for people who have no intention of going for a run. All the street cred, none of the stinky socks. Available now at Adidas Originals Britomart.
