Australia Fashion Week: Don't forget the boys

Yesterday saw the close of Australia Fashion Week, you might expect that the collections would be all bikinis and surf short, and while some of them were, the majority showcased truly talented designers who are worth keeping an eye out for. As with many fashion weeks the focus was very much on the womenswear , however, the handful of menswear collections that were exhibited really stood out.

My favourite collection was by From Britten, it was a mix of classic tailoring and sportswear with basketball-style shorts paired with sharp jackets. Cropped, boxy silhouettes and contrasting panels gave the collection a fresh edge  and quirky styling details such as mismatched socks providing a sense of fun to sombre colour pallet.

Another great collection came from Paul Scott, this collection was much more eclectic than From Britten's with a mix of prints including contrasting checks and fairisle patterns. Layering and patches formed a big part of the collection with cropped suit jackets worn over long line shirts.
