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!

11 reasons to love Spring!

11 August 2014, by Forrest Chase


We’re counting down to Spring… and while you begin your spring cleaning, we’re working away at inspiring your new home furnishings!

Beginning with the top left and going clockwise, we have the Laura Ashley Whitstable Lamp with a brass metal birdcage inspired base $199.00 – lighting can make all the difference and can completely transform a room!

Adding so colour is also a simple trick! For the kitchen the 4 set high ball tumblers by Bormioli Roccocan bring a rainbow to the table for just $24.95 (Myer). Made in Italy, the set is generously sized at 490ml so you don't have to constantly refill, and the soft dimpled texture adds a touch of fun. These glasses are dishwasher safe, making cleaning up a breeze!

Spruce up the living room with the Tamali Cushion with Pleat Trim by Morgan and Finch! They come in a range of colours and prints, you can browse the range at Bed Bath n Table ($39.95). In the same way a new quilt cover can reinvent your bedroom design. We love the Denver print by Morgan and Finch again from Bed Bath n Table. Prices range depending on the size.

Does anyone remember Tetris?! Plug in the blue Tetris light block and watch in wonder as each Tetris piece illuminates upon contact. Construct your own combination with 7 individual pieces to ensure endless stacking possibilities. The Tetris stackable LED desk lamp is a fantastic talking point to liven up any room with its colourful iconic design and it’s fun! You’ll find it at Myer for $49.95.

Cook up some fresh recipes with seasonal ingredients in the Maxwell and Williams Grabbers Milk Pan and Lid. Purple perfection for $16.95 at Myer – we can’t ensure the meals will turn out as good as the fresh kitchenware though!

Given that spring is time that flowers bloom we thought it was only logical to invest in a fresh vase to showcase the new gift of nature! The Salt & Pepper Gallery 49cm Blue Glass Bottle $49.95 from Myer works great!

Chop off those flower stems (that are going in the vase of course) with cheer when you use the Debutant 6 mixed steak knives ($69.95 from Bed Bath n Table) and then look for some new and innovative ways to display other household plants, inspire table settings and odd leftover containers with ‘The House Gardener’ from Myer ($49.95). With beautiful photographs and clever tips Isabelle Palmer will show you how to bring the outdoors in. With the increase popularity of DIY and beautifying your home this is a handy and inspiring book to have on the shelf!

Now to the important stuff… refresh yourself! Have a long shower after all that spring cleaning, shopping and innovation and dry off with the Manhattan Towel Range in Peacock! Part of the Jayson Brunsdon Home Collection at Myer, they range from $12.95 to $59.95. We’re sure you probably got engrossed in that process you so best you check the time with the Morgan and Fitch William Smith wall clock on silver, ($179.95 from Bed Bath n Table) cause before you know it… it will be Winter again!

Miranda Kerr - STEAL HER STYLE!

28 July 2014, by Forrest Chase


Miranda Kerr is a style icon for a reason. She’s a yummy mummy who always looks polished and stylish and we can help you recreate the look!

Beginning with the Dash of Colour Shirt from Sportsgirl ($79.95). This classic shirt can be worn with jeans on the weekend or dressed up with a skirt and heels for work! Miranda pulls hers off with Nobody Jeans – yes you can get the exact same pair (believe it) from Live Clothing. They come in a range of shapes and colours so you can find the pair that work for you, however Miranda wears the Cult Skinny Jean (they range from $180).

Keep it classic with a pair of Ballet Flats, like the Camilo’s from Novo Shoes ($39.95 – umm bargain!) and a pair of shades. You’ll find the Prada Voice Sunnies in Black/Grey ($380) from Sunglass Hut, and they have similar styles and a lower price point too.

Now the final touches! OPI Nail Polish in Cajun Shrimp on the digits – a nice shade of flavoursome red with a hint of coral, bound to bring out the pink tones on the shirt (was $19.95 now $14.96 from Myer). Accompanied with the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in Intouchable… doesn’t that sound nice?! It hydrates and softens the lips whilst making your lips POP! ($55 from Myer). You can store that in the Fossil Memoir Pocketbook Crossbody in Light Yellow, originally $ 229 now $ 159.95.
