Theme song: Clint Eastwood – The Gorillaz
Video Killed the Radio Star
It’s time to get in tune with your inner nostalgia lover because Video Killed the Radio Star is taking a step into the past with its adorably kitsch design. Bright, ironic and just a little bit self aware it reminds us of a simpler time, when people rode bicycles, played music on vinyl record players and a man could walk into a barber shop for a casual beard oiling before returning to his home to finish his novel on an old fashioned typewriter…wait a minute.
Mantra: They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
Theme song: Video Killed the Radio Star – The Buggles
“Out, Damned Spot!”
Ambitious, outgoing and always tackling challenges with a can do attitude that screams “give that man a promotion” “Out, Damned Spot” is the righter or wrongs, the positive charge to every negative thought. Oozing charisma and charm, these socks put an extra spring your step every day of the week. If they were any more outgoing they would whistle!
Mantra: Don’t worry, be happy.
Theme song: Three Little Birds – Bob Marley
“Andy Warhol called, he wants his socks back!” Bright, bubbly and just a little bit retro the Lichtenstein Lover is nothing less than wearable pop art. Not afraid the break the moulds and rattle a few cages on the way, these socks feature bold, clashing colours and prints brought together in a cacophony of shape and movement. Perfect for every art lover with a wild streak, turn your ankles into the most exclusive gallery in town with these eclectic socks and prepare yourself for a rave review.
Mantra: Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
Theme song: Take a walk on the wild side – Lou Reed.
Plucked straight from nature, these organically grown, locally sourced eggplant socks are so full of flavour they make every other pair look like Brussel sprouts. Taking the expression “you are what you eat” to a whole new level, show the world just how hungry for sock-cess you are with this season’s tastiest pair. Perfectly matched with vegetarians, chefs and anyone who is convinced that eggplants are a euphemism for something kind of filthy (get your mind out of the gutter), put these on and take a bite out of the competition.
Mantra: The way to a man’s heart is through his…stomach.
Theme song: Yummy, yummy, yummy, I’ve got love in my tummy – Ohio Express.
A mime is a terrible thing to waste
Silent, but deadly attractive these socks just have that “je ne sais quoi” that the French have and we want. Like the French entertainers for which they are named these socks are the perfect example that when it comes to fashion, actions speak louder than words. Slip them on, grab your beret and practice your most sultry stare across the room. Ooh la la.
Mantra: Silence is golden.
Theme song: Je T’aime…mois non plus – Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin.
Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker
Sweet enough to meet your in-laws for brunch, but bold enough to tackle an all night debauch with your friends, these are the “take them anywhere” charmers that’ll break the ice - and then pour a very fine scotch on top. From desk to dinner and then who knows where, put these socks on and you can follow your feet to any kind of mischief.
Mantra: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.
Theme song: Come on Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners.
I moustache you a question
The Sean Connery of socks - classy, timeless and impossibly seductive, this pair can walk into a room, order a proper cocktail and unhook a woman’s bra just by looking at it. Featuring a classic moustache design, now even the most facial hair deficient man can proudly don these socks, walk into a room and simply say “I moustache you a question, but I’m shaving it for later.”
Mantra: Slip out of those wet clothes and into a dry martini.
Theme song: Goldfinger – Shirley Bassey
I find you a-peeling
If there’s one thing that we can guarantee, it’s that once you get your feet into these bad boys, you’ll never want to split! Bright, bubbly and more than a little camp, get up to a whole bunch of fun with our banana patterned socks. Want our personal tip? Wear them on your next date as a sure fire way to boost up your “socks a-peel.” Get it? Because it’s a banana? Geez, tough crowd.
Mantra: It’s what’s on the inside that counts.
Theme song: Holla Back Girl – Gwen Stefani
