It’s times like these when the battle in my head between the crazy bugs of Australia and my undying desire to move to Sydney seriously fires up. Like seriously, how bad it actually is over there? Will I be waking up with a snake on my bed, or a crocodile on my door? Will I have beetles falling on my head all the time? Because besides the obvious climate and sea and carefree living thing, lately every new designer that catches my eye is from the land down under, a lot of brands like Lack of Color or Tony Bianco are making me pay a buttload of shipping money and now the street style scene of Australia Fashion Week. Really how awful are these bugs??
Esber is a new Aussi on the block, well he’s not actually new but he’s one of my new favorites – hand in hand with Ellery, Bassike, Tome, Maniamania and more – with pieces proudly worn by street style icons such as Christine Centenera and Candice Lake in the past. At only 28 he has a much impressive resume than yours, including but not limited to winning a national design award, representing his country at an American trade delegation and being considered for a prestigious emerging talent search at London Fashion Week. For this particular collection for example, he spent almost 12 months to create a Swiss-made bouclé fabric to perfectly mirror the image of a woman on a beach wrapping herself up in a towel. An effortless style that took all the effort in the world, that’s what luxury and perfection is to me.
Every year, when the Sydney Fashion Week street style looks start coming in April, I set my mind on moving to Australia so much that it even makes me forget that “things you can only see in Australia” horror list for a second.
Where women glow and men plunder. (If you are not singing the song in your head right now, you are dismissed.) Anyways it’s so late and cold here I don’t want to talk about the situation anymore. Aussies (and non Aussies who are at Sydney Fashion Week) are killing it. I’ve stated my interest in Australian fashion in various previous posts; I think they are the pioneer of the emerging fashion markets – talented designers & everybody beeing so tall and beautiful and cool and all (no I’m not jealous) makes it one of my favourite events of the year. I really want to visit Australia some time so maybe I should schedule it around April. I know it’s like 34646387 hours away from here, but it’s worth just to feel the sun and pretend to do surfing for a living, no?
