Can you describe your line and the main features of your brand in a few words?
Activewear with a street edge, think 90’s street sport, yet the pieces are all performance and functional.
Do you know Pitti Uomo and which are your expectations behind this project? For years we have known of Pitti Uomo and follow it for inspiration as menswear has been the main inspiration behind our womenswear collection. We are so thrilled to be launching our debut menswear range at Pitti this year. We are so excited to meet all the buyers and retailers face to face and to be there without fellow Aussie contemporaries. What an incredible opportunity and I know this will be an amazing networking and socializing experience, getting our brand in front of thousands of people that attend.
Can you tell us something about what we will see in Florence (the main inspirations behind the collections and something about it)?
We are launching our first menswear range of activewear, which has a very distinct street twist. It will feature Woolmark components highlighting merino wool as a key performance fabrication. It will also showcase our signature layering aesthetic and subtle color blocking. There is a definite 90’s street vibe to the activewear, that allows for the product to be worn to and from the gym, in style.
