This week fashion is coming alive “Down Under.” Sydney is in full swing, showcasing the best that Spring/Summer 2012/2013 has to offer.
We love Australia for its laid back beach lifestyle and it’s cool street edge — it makes sense that this week we’ve been glued to our computer screens seeing what the likes of Zimmermann, Ellery, Lisa Maree and Ksubi have to offer.
Out of all the shows so far, Alice Mccall’s has stood out to me. I love her use of colour and the touches of housewife chic that she has portrayed in a modern light, from the eggshell blue in the shoes to the bright orange and reds that bursts through in the florals. It’s done so well — even the silhouettes are contagious. Whenever I’ve seen her designs in editorial, they have always stuck in my mind, so I was excited to see what she was going to produce for this collection. She definitely nailed it.
Aside from the shows, street fashion was an inspiration too — from neon being worn under lace to jeweled jackets and pink dyed hair… Australia, we love you!!
