I’ve been rediscovering the magical world of Disney through the eyes of my amazing eldest. In fact I had a conversation about the merits of the film Zootopia with 4 adults and I didn’t even bring up the topic. Combine that with the awesomeness that is 101 Dalmatians and most of the princess movies, you’re looking at many years of nostalgia. You’ve seen me rave about the Disney collabs too, because whats better than Disney apparel? Disney collaborating with one of my favourite brands, Lazy Oaf!
I can’t believe have quickly time flies. You know that almost annoying last chance rack in your fave store? Well that’s what the entire Lazy oaf pop up is going to be as of tomorrow! They are packing up shop and going back to the country they came from and soon will be noting but a lusty twinkle in your international shipping budget. Oh what’s that you say? You don’t have a international shipping budget?
Sarahteaa and I went along to the launch to be met with a hot-dog stand, cocktails and an array of pretty things neatly arranged around sweets. Now it’s your turn to touch them, try them but try not to look too strange doing it. I promise it will only take a few minutes to convince yourself you need to reward yourself with a little gift this christmas. Why not make them fluffy, with googly eyes? At launch, Sarahteaa and I found far too many faves. From the classic cereal print shirt to the Garfield backpack and slogan tees.
Being one of the few brands designed creatively for both men and women, I found myself perusing both section and not with the man in mind. Dissappointed we couldn’t buy it all, we stole away a midst the vodka plied rabble to a little book store to wile away the night. Lazy Oaf, we hope you felt welcome enough in Oz to open up shop permanently some time. We promise to be worth the long distance relationship.
For years, I’ve been a devotee ever since my discovery of UK brand Lazy Oaf on Asos. It’s overflowed here with the release of their Garfield collaboration and now I have exciting news: Lazy Oaf is popping up down under! During 27th Nov to 13th Dec, Lazy Oaf will be squatting at 17 Oxford Street, Sydney in the former ASSIN store.
For three weeks you will great free reign over all their collections, all of which I would love for Christmas…or I guess you could be sane and buy something for someone you actually know, like yourself. Lazy Oaf may be too hot for Santa to handle.
Their range is superb both for men and women and tend to feature crudely drawn food, bold text, and iconic characters. The strange mix of power-puff cute, cooler than ice, batsh*t crazy is just something that resonates with me.They keep offering me spooky eyes, 80’s advertising and mickey mouse white gloves and I keep lapping it up. If you too love a little sunshine and quirky in your wardrobe, I would definitely recommend a look in before all the best pieces disappear.
