Balenciaga - Pre-Fall 10

Pre-fall collections are starting to drift instore now, just in time for the Perth winter (we are only just starting to feel the chill now). These fall colours are perfect timing. The first drop from Balenciaga is due to arrive in 2 weeks. We also made a reorder of some popular ss10 colours so those who missed out of a colour should contact the store for more information.

Alexander Wang - VELVET CUT

We have received so many questions asking us about the "velvet Cut". The Velvet Cut is a leather which has a finely cut surface to create a short dense pile - soft velvet-like finish. The velvet-like surface is further enhance by the use full grain leather that that retains the natural grain of the leather. The results are stunning, almost fabric-like. We will let the photos speak for themselves.

Deadly Ponies

A new label to CULTSTATUS this season, Deadly Ponies is an accessories label from New Zealand. The strength of this brand lies in it's use of beautiful leathers and unique designs which are at the same time very practical. Each piece is lovingly created entirely by hand from the selection of the leather to the stitching and hand screening of the labels. Designed and made entirely in New Zealand.

We especially love their use of Deerskin leather (a very soft, supple and luxurious leather which is also very tough) and their quirky details. Prices range from AUD$350 to $510.

LANVIN - new arrivals

We just received a new delivery from Lanvin, everything is gorgeous but our two favourite styles are :-

This super multi-purpose frame bag:-

Worn together it is a small shoulder bag on a long chain with jewel detailing, a bow and signature medallion. The clever thing about this bag is that the long chain is actually composed of one long chain necklace covered in chiffon and a bracelet with green stone. The medallion is a key ring and the satin is also detachable. You can use the bag as a clutch or shoulder bag (with 2 different lengths no less). A bag you can use forever! The bag itself is gorgeous, lined in a salomon colour satin and there is even a subtle external magnetic pocket. All of this neatly finished with a black clasp engraved with Paris at the base.

These flats are a perfect shade and look even better in person. This style has a slightly lower vamp than the quilted ballerinas that we have in black.
