Tools are down. It’s time to pick the party-wear up. As we surrender to the splendour of summer festivities, it’s paramount to select tactful occasionwear.
It’s all about finding those memorable-but-wearable pieces that make an impression in a multitude of contexts. You can flaunt them for your OOO extravaganzas or wear them to aperitivo hour the next evening with a little up-and-down dressing.
Supporting Australian and New Zealand-grown fashion
Consult the bar cart, throw some cheese on a platter and try on the below party-season edits for celebratory dressing that lasts the distance. We’re cutting the getting ready stress and curating a mini (but mighty) wardrobe of exceptionally versatile pieces plucked from our most coveted local designers.
These are makers who source materials and muses on home shores, supporting the best of close-by talent and tapestries. For the summer of supporting Australian and New Zealand-grown fashion, look no further than this tight-knit selection of familiar favourites.
Keyhole cuts and dreamy pastels define our seasonal soirée-ready picks from Wynn Hamlyn. This New Zealand maestro of materials plays with head-turning mesh-work and ruched mini dressing of distinction.
Touted the King of cut-outs, Christopher Esber has pioneered what has debatably become the summer’s most signature trend. Flaunt shoulders and hipbones or flashes of décolletage with expert splicing of the chicest degree. Select from a black and powder blue assortment of intermixable party-starters, canvassing casual sling one-shoulder knits and accentuating shapes.
The night is always young with SPEED. Channelling a dark and brooding discotheque aesthetic, the new Australian label is making cool strides in the dressing stakes. Opt for effortless edge and techno-fuelled designs from Harrolds’ recent arrival.
SONG FOR THE MUTE
We’ve found the intersection between the pinnacle of design and off-duty dressing and shirting from Song For The Mute. Layer up with smart darks and cult accessories for destination wear or pare back with flowing bottoms for a beach setting.
