Spring Sunnies

08 September 2014, by Forrest Chase


The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival is fast approaching and it won’t be long before the Perth fashion community will be joining forces to support Western Australian designers. We can’t wait to watch the amazing local talent strut their stuff down the runway!

Each year, the dedicated team behind Telstra Perth Fashion Festival promise exciting and appealing shows with fresh and innovative faces and this year will be no exception (don’t forget the Forrest Chase show on September 19th at 12pm!). To get you ready for Spring and the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival we have put together a collection of sunglasses that are sure to protect your eyes as well as ensure you are travelling to and from Perth CBD in utmost style.

Our friends at Sunglass Hut have truly delivered this season with a range of different styles to wear on any occasion. The Ray-Ban ‘Clubmaster’ ( bottom left $309.95) are not only on-trend but they may be the most convenient pair of sunglasses we’ve ever seen! Without compromising on quality, the ‘Clubmaster’ is a classic Ray-Ban style that folds at the bridge of the sunglasses to become a neat and compact accessory that will fit anywhere. This particular pair of sunglasses is timeless and is sure to make heads turn.

For an edgy yet laidback look, try the ‘Cubist’ (Top left $39.95) sunglasses from Sportsgirl. A classically structured pair of shades, the ‘Cubist’ are for those cool kids who want to add a bit of sparkle to their outfit. We recommend pairing these sunglasses with a nude piece like this the Self Tie Trench Coat from Witchery ($249.95 see in store at Forrest Chase for details) or let your sunglasses make their own statement by wearing an all-black ensemble. Either way, Sportsgirl have yet again nailed it with their selection of shades and the best part? At only $39.95, they don’t break the bank.

For the brave, we have sourced this amazing pair of Miu Miu sunglasses (Middle right $490.00), also available from Sunglass Hut. Their unique frames are a definite standout piece and even if you have no idea what to wear to the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, don’t worry because these shades will steal all the limelight anyway! With a choice of five colours, Miu Miu have truly delivered this season and although our credit cards may not, everyone else will be thanking you for rocking such an awesome accessory.

Who doesn’t love a bit of reflective action? Ray-Ban have hit the nail on the head with this pair of rock star aviators that are the epitome of awesome (Bottom right $249.95). The combinations of colours are endless so no matter what your outfit, Sunglass Hut has you covered. Ray-Ban aviators are the ultimate pair of sunglasses for those channelling the current sport-luxe trend that Perth is loving oh so much.

The pick from Portmans is the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses and the name embodies exactly what these sunglasses are – a classic and versatile accessory that can be worn at any time of day (Top right $39.95). If you are heading to a day runway show, the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses are a great extra addition to an outfit and the tortoiseshell is so timeless.

Speaking of international runways, Prada have released a unique cat-eye pair of sunglasses that sunglass lovers all over the world are swooning over (Middle left $390.00). The quality is undeniable and the materials used epitomise Prada’s brand vision. They are completely exclusive which means if you want to be one of a kind at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival this year, these one of a kind sunglasses are the pair for you. You can snag a pair of these Prada sunglasses from Myer in Forrest Chase.

So no matter the occasion, budget or outfit, Forrest Chase has you covered for sunglasses this season. Sunglasses are the perfect accessory as they are practical yet can also complete an entire look. If you are heading to any shows at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, ensure you make the time to pop in to Forrest Chase to view our exclusive selection of sunglasses and sit front row with your shades, à la Anna Wintor.

Here’s to spring!

What's On at Gloria Jeans

08 September 2014, by

Gloria Jeans

Do you have a coffee shop you are so loyal to that it seems like cheating if you go somewhere else? We do too. It’s no secret that we love our coffee in Australia – some may even call us ‘coffee snobs’?! Our go to coffee shop is no other than Gloria Jeans, located in Forrest Chase at 2/166 Murray Street in Perth CBD. The shop, spoilt by its regular clients who come in every day for their caffeine fix, have been working (and brewing) around the clock to provide Perth CBD with the best coffee in town.



Gloria Jeans


With spring now upon us, Gloria Jeans have launched the ‘Cakewich’ which is definitely as exciting as it sounds. It is the Gloria Jeans take on a sandwich crossed with a cake or as Gloria Jeans call it, “a slice of cake on the go”.  These sweet treats are only for a short time and they come in two flavours; Choc Mousse and White Choc Raspberry. Mmm….

If cake isn’t your thing (or you feel like something deliciously sweet and creamy to compliment your ‘cakewich’), try one of Gloria Jeans new Choc Raspberry Lattes. Because Perth weather can be temperamental and no one ever knows if it will be sunshine or sprinkles, Gloria Jeans have introduced the Choc Raspberry Latte in both a hot or cold option. Speaking from experience, both versions are equally as delicious and the sugar hit will keep you buzzing throughout the day!



Gloria Jeans

We know how hard it is to stay motivated throughout the week but now Gloria Jeans have made it much easier to stay on that health bandwagon with the launch of their new Tuscan Veggie Wrap and Chicken Caesar Wrap. So before you start stressing about grilling that chicken or boiling those asparagus stalks five minutes before you need to be walking out the door, just remember that Gloria Jeans has you covered. What is even better is that with the purchase of either wrap, you can rehydrate with sparkling water for only $2. Lunch, tick!

We challenge you to try your luck at designing some latte art as cool as Gloria Jeans own Rie Moustaka. Rie recently took out first place in the Latte Art category at the Australasian Specialty Coffee Association (AASCA) National Championships. Check out the video here: http://vimeo.com/95917388 and the article here: http://www.gloriajeanscoffees.com/au/News/Blog/Article/tabid/147/ArticleId/483/Baristas-work-of-Latte-Art-takes-out-top-industry-prize.aspx

It’s fair to say there is a lot happening at Forrest Chase Gloria Jeans with much more to come! In the meantime, become an eSipper Club member and reap awesome benefits such as a free drink on your birthday, exclusive offers and treats plus more. Get sippin’!

The Father’s Day Gift Guide

05 September 2014, by Forrest Chase


If you are looking for something different to get Dad this Fathers Day, look no longer! Forrest Chase is your one stop destination to get THAT special gift. To make your job easier, we have collated a range of different ideas that guarantee you brownie points this Fathers Day!

This durable yet on-trend watch available at Fossil ($249) one of our favorites’ out of the many different styles available. It is masculine, sport-inspired and ensures precise performance. We recommend this gift for the on-the-go Dad who enjoys a Little Creatures after work, Saturday arvo barbeques with his friends and watching the kids play Sunday footy.

For a more practical, every-day gift for Dad, head in to Politix where they have an array of different ties for any occasion. Our pick is the ‘Davis’ Tie ($89), which is 100% silk and reversible! The tie is available in four different colours (‘sky’ is our favourite) and is suitable for the diligent, corporate Dad. No hard-working Dad ever had too many ties! Pair his new tie with the ‘Reeves’ suede shoe ($189), available in both black and navy and Dad will be the best-dressed guy in the office!

Is your Dad one of those culinary geniuses that can be found spending his Saturday slow-cooking lamb and blow torching the top of a lemon meringue pie? Does his Sunday morning consist of he reading the paper at the boutique coffee shop down the road? If so, we recommend the Breville Pro 800 Espresso Machine ($329). He, along with his other kitchen appliances, will love it!

Our last pick is the Pyramid Embossed wallet by Armourdillo ($20 from Live Clothing). It’s a cheaper yet still great option if you need something to compliment other gifts or if Dad is an easy to please kind of guy! Every man needs a wallet so help him out with this great option from Live.

If time is not your friend this Fathers Day, remember all of our retailers offer gift certificates! Instead of opting for socks and underwear, let your father choose his own presents this year and shopping is always a nice bonding activity! So if all else fails, head in to Forrest Chase stores to pick up a gift certificate!
