The gatekeeper-style mannequins created by a Sydney-based wood-worker - whose handiwork is also featured in impressive eating spaces such as Izakaya Den in Melbourne and The Commons in Sydney - act not just as intriguing window fixtures, but as embodiments of what seems to be Vanishing Elephant’s whole design philosophy: to make even the staple elements interesting, whether this be in a room or a range.
Vanishing Elephant’s popular Derby shoe style is a perfect example of this philosophy – classic in shape and economical in design, available in distinct colours and materials. In this sense, the label echoes international brands such as A.P.C. and Our Legacy, but fortunately for us, Vanishing Elephant manages this feat while remaining much more affordable.
Hand-made leather accessories from Makr Carry Goods, & Tailfeather, sunglasses from Graz and Garrett Leight, Jewellery from Pink Lou Lou and celebrated incense from Incienso de santa fe complement the apparel.
Vanishing Elephant’s autumnal toned CBD space is inviting and warm, which reflects their range to a tee. Now including both women's and men's styles, Vanishing Elephant has cemented its place as an Australian fashion label with staying power.
