MELBOURNE – PRAHRAN – AUSTRALIA
I could seriously take pictures of this Dutchman all day long, although if I did he’d just end up covering my body in next level tattoos. But if your a little more decisive than me when it comes to getting inked and your looking for an artist to mark you up? You can find Van Ruben at Full Moon Tattoo, 19-23 izett street Prahran
Two years ago, British-born men’s accessories designer Christian Kimber moved from London to Melbourne, where he founded an eponymous line of footwear. His signature suede loafers and chukka boots—shoes that look equally at home with beat-up denim and bespoke tailoring—are generally sold at local shops but can be made-to-order. From his initial concepts for a show (he uses watercolors to sketch out his ideas) to designing the brand’s logo (the burnt orange color was inspired by the bright Australian mud) to managing the business, Christian oversees every stage himself.
