ETRE CECILE

Violent Green is super excited to announce that we will soon be welcoming Être Cécile to our family!
Originally remaining anonymous, the founders of the London based, European inspired label have drawn inspiration from one of their Grandmothers’, Cecile, an Irish born artist living in 1960’s Paris with a passion for animal prints and flair for fashion.

The covetable label creates contemporary, ready-to-wear pieces with a Parisian edge, their slogan being Presque Parisienne – almost Parisian.

With an aim to produce simple pieces inspired by the cleanliness of French style, the brand also draws on influences from Cecile herself.

The label’s original vision was to create slick, sophisticated tees and sweats, with a Parisian edge, that could be worn alongside designer pieces.

Lately, the brand has swiftly increased their offering with a host of new styles from parkas to skirts, and more recently, bags.
Être Cécile prides itself on using quality fabrics, to establish themselves in the market as more than an average street wear label, but also to be more accessible than the designer brands. Injecting subtle humour and light-heartedness into each collection, this label has been taking the world by storm, with celebs such as fashion models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, to name a few, being big fan’s and supporters of the brand.
This drop is not one you want to miss out. To be first in, best dressed (excuse the pun) upon arrival, subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the page here or keep checking in to our Albert Street City store!











SONG OF THE WEEK!



Recently found out about this gem of a band. These Peruvian garage rockers were active in the 60's putting out some great records ( LOS YORK'S 67, 68 and 69). If you're a fan of the Black Lips, King Khan and BBQ show or Ty Segall, I'm sure you'd love a listen to these OG boys.

COCURATA S/L SHIRT DRESS


Design is integral when creating a memorable minimalistic piece of clothing. You can’t rely on an eye catching print – instead it all comes down to the cut and detailing of an item. A piece that encapsulates this perfectly is the Cocurata Sleeveless Shirt Dress.

Made from a crisp white cotton blend, this dress is fresh and easy to wear in any climate. The asymmetrical collar which runs the length of the dress looks amazing and adds those details mentioned earlier. The collar is also soft and can be easily manipulated to style it to the way you want.

The dress also has two hidden side pockets which are a blessing. You really forget how much you need pockets until you’re left without them!

The dress is really affordable despite the effort and quality control that has been applied and like all Cocurata pieces; it’s limited to a run of 300 worldwide!

Check it out in our Albert Street Brisbane City store and online here

STANCE x JASON JESSE

 Stance once again has teamed up with pro US skateboarder and deck designer, Jason Jesse, and this recent collaboration is simply awesome!
A Jason Jesse original artwork, the sock is adorned with the Virgin of Guadalupe, a banner being held by an angel with Jason’s name splashed across it, a pair of hands in prayer with the words ‘Pray For Me’ and underneath that, a tribute to Santa Cruz Skateboards.
The sock has been designed to ‘take care of your feet’, made from premium combed cotton with reinforced toe and heel for durability, mesh vents for cooling and Stance’s signature elasticated arch; these babies are built to last while remaining super comfortable.
For ultimate comfort when you next go for a skate, or just for everyday wear, you can grab these sweet socks and others by Stance in our Albert St City Store or online here

VANS OLD SKOOL LEATHER POLKA DOT


Vans have once us again brought us the goods, with a new drop of styles that includes the Polka Dot Black Old Skool’s.
In the classic Vans Old Skool style, this low top shoe shows off all the original Old Skool lace up features: side stripe, waffle outer soles and padded collar. The point of difference in this shoe comes in the materials and print. With the uppers made from leather and a reinforced toe, this shoe is not only going to withstand constant wear, but is also easy to keep clean.

This ladies shoe comes in a polka dot print, white spot on a black background making it super wearable and easy to pair back with almost any outfit! The shoe also sports a purple sole and inner, for a little splash of colour without ruining the monochromatic feel. 

These babies are available in a range of sizes so pop into our Albert Street City store for a try on, or shop this style and others by Vans on our online store here
