Oh! YES!  VICTORIA does know her VINTAGE TEXTILES !!!!! The crushed GERMAN VELVET will adorn furniture appropriate to its superior quality.  An appreciation of STUDS EMBELLISHMENT is also within the sphere of VICTORIA'S aesthetic world .....hence the acquisition of the finely crafted BELT  which can be worn as an additional  NECK-PIECE (complimenting her own EXTRAVAGANZA of SPIKES).

The "PRINTEMPS" of PARIS GENDER-FLUID cotton green JACKET will go from "BALL & CHAIN", PRAHRAN to BALI with its new custodian, ANDRI. BORNEO-BORN ANDRI studied FASHION in AMSTERDAM & is in that field in BALI. STEPHAN, of GERMAN & DUTCH cultural origins (as is sister SIMONE) is also involved in the FASHION ECHELON of BALI. The SATIN-LAPEL BLACK "DINNER JACKET" found-its-way-into-his-heart-&-head ! . . . . . & Simone, so patient BEAUTY-of-BAVARIA, indulged the GENTLEMEN'S leisurely "on holidays" shop. See you next time in MELBOURNE?

In "BALL & CHAIN" SUSTAINABILITY SALON, 262 Chapel St., PRAHRAN, from PERTH, W.A., was DENISE, FURRIER SUPREME ("AMITY & UNITY"). Travelling with husband TODD (who has a keen eye for GIANNI VERSACE ties), & friend PETER, DENISE demonstrated her appreciation of RETRO & VINTAGE garments which reflect an element of HOLLYWOOD GLAM, & LONDON 1960's SHARP-EDGE (think JEAN SHRIMPTON). And OH ! the MAN-HAT of the 1940s was also a SUCCESSORY ! ELEGANCE PLUS, DENISE : Go to the TOP-of-the-CLASS ! See you on your next Melbourne jaunt ?

Oh ! TEMPTATION ! Is "ZOE" thy other name ? Is it safe to browse "BALL & CHAIN"'s SUSTAINABILITY SALON with anyone named ZOE ? CHRISSY left the SALON with a stylish CLASSIC BLACK VELVET BUTTON-THROUGH PRINCESS-LINE COAT-DRESS . . . . . the ultimate in VERSATILITY which takes the wearer from "WORK" to "BLACK TIE" . . . . . a perfect piece for CHRISSY (a KINESIOLOGIST with a side-interest in JEWELLERY . . . . . a marriage of human movement & human adornment). ZOE is currently doing post-grad study in PRIMARY-SCHOOL TEACHING. They enjoyed the COMPANIONABLE BROWSE; & share an appreciation of fine textiles & VINTAGE CRAFTSMANSHIP.
