She’s been dubbed the “next big thing” by Vogue and now Nicole Millar is joining the awesome ambassador foursome as the face of our new Home Grown™ Tee range. The Aussie indie singer first rose to fame in 2014, when she featured on the Peking Duck track, “High,” which went on to win an ARIA Award and reach number two on Triple J’s Hottest 100. As a star on the rise, we couldn’t think of a better ambassador to round out our tribe of home grown talent. We caught up with Nicole, fresh from her Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Bonds store appearance, to find out which style of tee style rocks her world.
When it came to who would follow in Miranda Kerr’s giant footsteps from last year’s Bonds Swim campaign, we couldn’t look any further than Bonds girl, Shanina Shaik. The 26-year-old has fronted ads for Bonds before, and has since gone on to cement herself as a powerhouse in the industry, having walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a whopping five times! Now she is back for our latest Bonds Swim range, along with fellow model, Jay Alvarrez.
The pair hit the beaches of Malibu to model a variety of swim pieces. Shanina sported our latest range of mix and match bikinis, and one-pieces, while Jay tried out our newest collection of Bonds boardies, while he dabbled in a bit of surfing in between takes. Scroll on to see exclusive behind-the-scenes images from the shoot.
To the new Dads, the old Dads, the tired Dads, the childish Dads, the jokey Dads, the grumpy Dads, and the Mums / Grandparents / Aunts / Uncles / Friends who double as Dads… Happy Father’s Day to you! 💝

When it came to sourcing cotton for our new range of Home Grown™ tees, there was no doubt as to who we’d call upon to help. Since only the purest cotton would do, we teamed up with Cotton Australia to tap into our local cotton farming industry and strengthen our commitment to sustainability. Producing some of the world’s purest cotton, there was no better resource than our Aussie farmers to help us achieve our softest, most colour-saturated tees to date.
All Australian cotton is farmed under a set of standards based on environmental and ethical practices and is fully traceable from farm to store. We met with local Darlington Point farmer, Scott Anderson, to discuss how the Aussie cotton farming industry has evolved over the years and why sourcing local materials is essential to ensuring its future.
As Father’s Day looms, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the bloggers bringing us daily content from a dad’s point-of-view. Recently, we chatted to Brett from the Instagram account @fifo.dad about life as a fly-in-fly-out father, and today we’re interviewing Jesse Manners from @fatherlikesons about what it’s like to give a voice to dads on social media.
