Danii & Jordan

What’s an essential piece for the season from Culture Kings?

Danii: I’d say a hoodie – we actually have a cool promotion surrounding all our hoodies at the moment called ‘Home of the Hoodies’. Perfect for winter.

Jordan: Either a vest or a bomber jacket for layering - it’s too cold in Melbourne.

 

What is your favourite styling tip?

Danii: I’m a big fan of belts, chains and bum bags. Add them to any outfit to make it pop.

Jordan: Learning the best way to tightly cuff your jeans so that you show off your shoes.

Danii: Hyped limited-edition Jordan’s which launch every Saturday. They’re a real collector’s piece.

Jordan: The anti-order watch. A great time piece and you can change the face of the watch.

Danii: All the different customers we get in – we have such a variety of customers that come to Culture Kings to shop, attend appearances or use our Barber.
