Made from a gorgeous crepe de chine, the piece showcases a deep V neckline, long flared sleeves, a high side split beginning inches from the armpit, lined upper and finally a soft, draped silhouette.

SONG OF THE WEEK!


One band that never leaves the speakers at Violent Green has to be goth heroes THE CURE. Gloomy, doomy but still a little upbeat and enough to soldier on for Monday. Enjoy this live number.

Iggy ( the better and only true Iggy!) has been rockin out since the sixties and continues to do so even today. His recent collaboration with Josh Homme looks to be pretty smooth and reminds me a lot of Bowie style. Managed to check out the Stooges a few years ago but always wanted to see a Iggy Pop solo show with all he's classic catalogue ( The Lust For Life Album in full would be kickass!).
Here's the classic China Girl live. Enjoy!

SONG OF THE WEEK!


One of our all time favourite heroes has to be the sweet heart " Dee Dee Ramone". Yeah, his career never really took off outside of the Ramones but fuck it, at least he gave it a go. Am I right?
Always one to push the limits, Dee Dee went from punk rocker to rap king. Here's a fun one from his catalogue.

I remember being a youngster and managing to catch Lou Reed at a one-off festival in Brisbane. It was quite a strange setup but appealed to me because of the variety of artists on the lineup. Some real 90's legends like Nine Inch Nails, Ice T / Bodycount, L7, Pennywise, Faith No More, Mr Reed and so many more. My highlight of that day was meeting some of the Bodycount guys in the crowd. Fuck they were a scary bunch. Well here's a sweet tune from LR. Enjoy.

VANISHING ELEPHANT O/S TEE available in Panelled Stripe

 The first drop of Vanishing Elephant’s ’Ten Percent’ collection has arrived in store and we are so excited.

One piece we’re loving is Oversized Tee in Panelled Stripe. Designed for comfort (which is evident in it’s oversized shape) and made from 100% cotton, this shirt is perfect for our hot summer.

The shirt features a ‘striped’ panelled center in a navy and white check.  The paneling adds an extra dimension to the tee and the blue check draws the eye by giving it a real summer fresh vibe.

Easy to wear and still look good, that’s what Vanishing Elephant is all about.

You can check this tee and other pieces from the Vanishing Elephant Ten Percent collection in our Albert Street Brisbane City store and online here.
