Great Collaboration With the Woolmark Company: Ten Pieces Collection at Icebergs

Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss have revealed TEN PIECES 17:18 VERTICAL STRIPES 41-50, their third show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia held at the iconic Bondi Icebergs Dining Room and Bar.

Releasing their fifth offer of wardrobe essentials, in collaboration with The Woolmark Company, TEN PIECES Resort 17:18 is a ten-piece Merino Wool jersey collection and knitted Cashwool® collection.

Merino and silk Merino jerseys in soft earthy colours have been introduced to offset the black and white staples and reinterpret signature silhouettes.

Modern day monochrome twin sets have been designed to offer the wearer a simple yet elegant choice in casual dressing and the addition of knitwear signals a new and evolved TEN PIECES.

Vertical print stamps influenced by industrial architecture and landscapes, the sporty punk muse has a more refined overall look suggested through detailed finishes.

References to Sharpies – suburban youth gangs in Australia in the ‘60s and ‘70s – see the collection styled with a raw and quintessentially Australian edge.

TEN PIECES Resort Runway collection will feature accessories by Berlin-based designer Brohn Smith of Breath & Stone, a collaboration between two like-minded designers focused on forging their own identities.

At TEN PIECES there are no seasons or reasons only TEN options that are interchangeable.

Collection in stores and online in September.

Ellery and Etihad Airways Celebrated 10 Year Milestones at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

A ground breaking decade of fashion and luxury travel was celebrated at an exclusive Australian Fashion Week VIP Event in Sydney overnight.

Distinguished Australian designer, Ellery, last night co-hosted an exclusive event – ELLERY X ETIHAD AIRWAYS – together with the Abu Dhabi-based airline at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

The event celebrated ELLERY’s 10th year since showing for the first time at Australian Fashion Week with a retrospective of iconic looks from the ELLERY archive.

Etihad Airways celebrated its 10 years of service to Australia and global commitment to fashion with the Australian launch of its Runway To Runway program.

Adding further excitement to the occasion, Etihad Airways also unveiled a new fashion initiative – Model Diaries– an original content series featuring IMG Model Georgia Fowler in the inaugural episode.

Upcoming destinations include Mumbai, London, Abu Dhabi and beyond.

Etihad Airways’ ‘Runway to Runway’ initiative is a unique loyalty and rewards program specifically designed to support the fashion industry’s international travel requirements.

Brilliant Reaction to Designer Thomas Puttick Using 60-year-olds in Fashion Week Show

IN ONE of the most refreshing displays of fashion and runway diversity, a young Australian designer has gone where not many have gone before.

Thomas Puttick has actually used ‘older’ models in his eponymous designer label show, on the first official full day of Australian Fashion Week.

Just before the show started at Carriageworks in Sydney’s Redfern, the voice of designer Puttick explained why his choice of ‘diverse’ women. Or the models he called his ‘muses’.

“The new series is a way for us to present empowered women who have a strong message, and who carry themselves,” he said.

There were tall women, former models, shorter women and even women who weren’t the traditional ‘rake-thin’. Some of the names included Yvonne Tozzi, Nadine Bush, Dina Broadhurst, Nima Davif and Aminata Conteh-Biger.

Puttick’s fashion pedigree is sound, having worked with the like of Alexander McQueen, Christopher Esber, Helmut Lang and Alexander Wang and his collection featured ethically sourced fabrics in soft and flowing pieces that really could be worn by many ages, shapes and sizes.

Slip dresses, flowing coats, simple oversized black pants, white shirts and tube skirts gave the whole collection a relatable and wearable edge.

Also showing today was Alice McCall, who kicked off an early Monday morning with a rock- chick kind of show featuring combinations that could be put together if we’d all raided grandma’s wardrobes and funked her pieces up with the addition of cool-school granny pants.

As well, Bianca Spender delivered an extraordinarily streamlined show in loose and layered pastel hued pieces — she really has inherited the understated and all-class gene from her fashion designer mum, Carla Zampatti.

Bianca accessorised her pieces with some killer Dinosaur Designs jewellery and buckles.

The incredibly cool new label from Mikey Nolan, Double Rainbouu and Karla Spetic will show today while Aussie model, 20-year-old Byron Bay-born Jordan Barrett is, allegedly, being paid $100,000 to ‘walk’ in a show from designer Justin Cassin today.

Red carpet favourite Steven Khalil is scheduled to show his exquisitely made extravaganzas on Monday afternoon while Zhivago and Sass & Bide will also wrap up day one of the annual fashion fiesta which runs until Thursday night, when Romance was Born wraps up the fashion week that was.

Ellie Goulding Launches The Range Rover Velar In New York

The new Range Rover Velar made a spectacular US debut with an exclusive live online performance from Ellie Goulding.

The chart-topping singer’s New York show precedes a charity auction of the hotly anticipated new mid-size SUV at the East Side House Settlement Annual Gala later this week.

Ellie said: “I have always been a big Range Rover fan and it was a pleasure to be a part of its launch here in the US.

Even more rewarding to be supporting a local charity that improves over 10,000 lives every year in one of my favourite cities.”

A Range Rover Velar will be auctioned at the East Side House Settlement charity gala, a preview of the 2017 New York International Auto Show, at the Jacob Javits Center.

The winning bidder will be among the first customers in the world to take delivery of the highly coveted new vehicle.

New York remains the world’s biggest Range Rover market.

Proceeds from the gala will benefit the East Side House Settlement, a non-profit organisation providing education and social services in the Bronx and north Manhattan.
