Minimalism was the aim of the game at last nights Melbourne Spring Fashion Week designer runway. Narrated by a story of Melbourne aesthetic, spring style and electro pop/psychedelic tunes, designs by the likes of Yeojin Bae, Alice McCall, LifeWithBird and our very own old roomies Kahlo were effortlessly chic and contemporary.
Alice McCall changed it up this season using more structured elements within her designs. Still paying homage to the traditional aesthetic we have all come to love, the use of architectural inspired tailoring saw McCall tread the line of playfulness and simplicity perfectly.
Yeojin Bae. What can I say? Brilliance. Every single year this gorgeous, creative human amazes me. With geometric silhouettes, cut out waistlines and asymmetric structures, Yeojin Bae is innovative and visually articulate. She is true to her creative vision and creates designs that reflect the contemporary female aesthetic.
LifeWithBird reinforced that pink, whether pastel or fuchsia, is here to stay this season. With laser cuts, sheer panelling and horizontal structures becoming a focus within the collection, the designs were distinct and conceptual. Designers Bridget McCall and Nicholas Van Messner have again created a simple, modern and inventive vision of style and design.
With our good friends over at Kahlo showing their latest collection at MSFW, we were incredibly excited to see what they had in store. Laid back, nonchalant, sport luxe and chic is everything Kahlo this season. Elegant yet understated, just the right amount of metallic paired with a monochrome palette and all of the layering perfection you could hope for. High neck lines, crops and simple structures gave the collection a sense of boyish charm and versatility. On point Kahlo, on point!
With minimalism trending now more than ever, these talented designers have created beautiful designs that ultimately reflect todays modern woman who seeks comfort, versatility and elegance. I’d say that all of those boxes were ticked.
