Frankie magazine is a national bi-monthly based in Australia, aimed at women (and men) looking for a magazine that’s as smart, funny, sarcastic, friendly, cute, rude, arty, curious and caring as they are. Frankie magazine covers design, art, photography, fashion, travel, music, craft, interiors and real-life stories.
In Issue 54, you can indulge in meeting all sorts of creative folks from filmmaker Rhys Mitchell, to performer Vachel Spirason, and fashion designer Alexandra Kovac. They discuss what makes them tick, advice (the good and the bad), life mottos and pet peeves.
Another inspiring visionary, Trevor Hawkins brings to life his journey to Rwanda. What started as a business trip to bring money to Africa, ended up being a humbling experience for Trevor. Despite Rwanda's rep for genocide and poverty, the locals seemed happy and full of life. The entire country lives by the motto of 'Never forget'. Check out the video below:

Your backyard may not be as green and lush as those beautiful landscapes in Africa, but Frankie does teach you a little thing or two about eating weeds. Thats right, weeds. Weeds surprisingly have a lot of nutrients and healing properties.
On the topic of gardening, German illustrator, Angela Dalinger, paints imaginary flowers that have made their way to the cover of Issue 54. Most paintings of plants are her own creation, and some are from memory. All of her paintings can be found on her blog.
You can definitely get a sense of Australians' cheeky and witty humor through the small lighthearted articles throughout the magazine like: An Open Letter to My High School Boyfriend, How to Be 20-something, and Let's Be Friends to keep you laughing and entertained it's entirety.
Purchase Frankie magazine at our Hennessey + Ingalls store or online.

Food trucks are a huge part of L.A. culture so it was only a matter of time before trucks had more than just food. Owner Jenifer Kaplan decided that people are always in need of flowers and who has to go to a traditional floral shop? The Flower Truck has been parked on the Westside of L.A. for the past few months making the city a brighter more colorful place to shop. She carries everything from lilacs to hyacinths and even mini pineapples! Great local buds that won't hurt your piggy bank.

An update from our Beijing Correspondent, Ritchie Chan:
New paintings and sculpture by ffiXXed.
The installation on Triple-Major's rooftop showing ffiXXed's AW10 collection.
Founded in Berlin by Aussies Fiona Lau and Kain Picken, art and design group ffiXXed
has travelled far and wide since, re-locating a number of times to gain an international scope. Currently based in Shenzhen, China, ffiXXed creates multimedia work, including a prêt-a-porter fashion label, to frame a wider discussion about the role objects play in the construction of our daily lives. Triple-Major
had the recent pleasure of hosting ffiXXed's work in our Beijing concept store with the exhibition, everything, everywhere, all the time
. Featuring ffiXXed's new works in sculpture, painting and clothing, the exhibition explored the relationships between objects and places in an increasingly global consumer culture.
An advanced version of the traditional Japanese heat table, Kotatsu with Sleeves is a direct response to the notion that fashion is a social forum, where everyone can share and exchange ideas
