If the Russians own street style, the Australians own design. Australian designers are really kicking ass right now; their prints and cuts are the most original, flattering and interesting and it seems that everyone else is taking note. I have seen a lot of inspired designs by CFDA designers; the big guys are copying the little guys.
Here is a short list of my favorite Aussie talent:
- Alice McCall (designer)
- Camilla & Marc (designer)
- Zimmermann (designer)
- Dion Lee (designer)
- Oracle Fox (blogger)
- Shine by Three (blogger)
- 4th & Bleeker (blogger)
- Gary Pepper (blogger)
I first discovered Alice McCall last summer when The Coveteur shot Gary Pepper Girl in a few pieces (see below) and I have been stalking the blue dress ever since…
I have been purchasing more pieces from Oz (remember that Michael Lo Sordo top?). These four pieces shown above are on their way to my doorstep right now. I won’t be able to wear them for a few months, but my spring wardrobe is ready.
