Ok, this isn’t quite the house that time forgot But this 1960s midcentury modern property in Park Orchards, Victoria, Australia has barely changed since the early 1960s. Read more
If you want a hip ‘60s hangout in the Sydney area, look no further than this midcentury modern property in Narraweena, New South Wales, Australia. Renovated, but still oozing so much retro charm and style. It is up for auction in the near future too.
Now this really is impressive. A midcentury property that looks like something out of a mid-20th century interiors magazine. It's actually a 1970s Hassell & Partners-designed midcentury house in Adelaide, South Australia.
Australian swimwear label Jemma Jube is inspired by superheroes and super vixens; tough talking ladies who flaunt their curves but can more than hold their own in a man's world.
The Bonnie Bikini takes a classic retro shape and cuts it to flatter – accentuating the bust with an underwired balconette bustier and slimming the stomach and hips with super-high-waisted shorts. It's a sexy look that keeps you covered and combines the style of vintage swimwear with modern fabrics that work to conceal and enhance your figure in all the right places.
Of course you can buy an England 1966 shirt, a Brazil 1970 (above), a Holland 1974, an Argentina 1986 or an Italia 1982 track top. Indeed, you can pick up every ‘big name’ team from just about every eras. But you can also pick up some of the more niche shirts of past and current World Cup participants too – like the USA 1950 shirt, also pictured above.
Or to be really niche, check out a 1960s Japan football shirt over the page, as well as the shirt worn by Australia in their first World Cup in 1975. Most prices are around the £34.99 mark, but start at £19.99. Check out the full range at the site.
Inspired by the range of tourist iconography available in Great Britain, Make Me Iconic attempts to do the same with some of Melbourne's landmarks. They've commissioned young designers to create new artwork celebrating the history of the city, resulting in products like this Plastic Tea Towel.
The design shows the Nylex Plastics sign, giving the time and temperature to residents since it was built on top of barley silos in 1961. Other designs focus on the city's milk bars, skyline and transport network and are shown across a range of cushions, prints and mugs, as well as the tea towels. Each product comes packaged with some information on the history of the object it illustrates.
This design costs AUS $25.
