Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has officially kicked-off in Sydney showcasing new styles from the nation’s most innovative designers and the latest in menswear trends. One of the most anticipated shows on the lineup will be the latest from Justin Cassin. It’s also expected to be one of the biggest in Australian history, with over 2000 guests attending.
The Justin Cassin Resort 2020 Collection will be presented Wednesday, May 15 at Sydney’s Luna Park, by a variety of talented Aussie runway models including former Olympian Michael Klim, AFL footballer Jaeger O’Meara and Neighbours actor Tim Kano. The accompanying live soundtrack will be performed by Melbourne songstress Owl Eyes and Thelma Plum, straight from her stint at Groovin’ the Moo.
The Resort 2020 Collection features contemporary styles that fuse comfortable streetwear aesthetics with classic menswear for a unique blend of laid-back sophistication. The Justin Cassin brand is inspired by the need to provide strong independent men with stylish, functional, quality apparel that will live through the seasons.
Justin Cassin was born in Sydney, before moving to the United States and studying fashion in New York. He worked for several fashion designers over the following decade before starting his own label. Cassin is primarily based in Los Angeles and frequently travels between Hong Kong and Sydney.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia runs from May 12 – 17. You can find highlights from the schedule here. Justin’s ready-to-wear apparel is found via the link below. His Resort 2020 Collection is expected to join the readily available styles over the coming months.
Louis Vuitton Presents Virgil Abloh’s First Jewellery Collection
Louis Vuitton presents a new jewellery collection from Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh that draws inspiration from hip-hop, skate culture and classic Cuban chain links. The new collection reinterprets designs that first appeared during the men’s Spring-Summer 2019 show fixed to various accessories and leather goods.
A multi-hued chain is offered as a tribute to diversity. It showcases an array of exceptional finishes, techniques and materials, which are united together across the links. Coloured enamel is presented in orange and blue tones; the brass possesses an aged gold effect, with palladium finishing, monogram engraving, and crystal in a range of hues.
An alternative to this piece comes with an entirely palladium-finish and features the LV monogram artfully scattered across its surface. The collection also includes two prominent white ceramic pieces – a pendant and a signet ring embossed with monogram palladium-finished brass.
All chain necklaces and bracelets come with an innovative new system of closing; a cylindrical slide specially developed to ensure security.
The clasp comes embellished with Louis Vuitton branding and an “R” engraving. The trademark symbol is a detail that runs throughout the collection. Both aspects pay tribute to the Spring-Summer 2019 collection, where Virgil Abloh first introduced white ceramic jewellery.
The Louis Vuitton men’s jewellery collection from Virgil Abloh is available now.
Nike BETRUE Collection Supports an Inclusive Culture
Nike has released the colourful 2019 BETRUE collection in support of creating a more inclusive culture.
Featuring tees, sneakers, socks, hoodies and shoulder bags, the BETRUE collection pays homage to activist Gilbert Baker and his iconic rainbow flag design that after 40 years remains a universal symbol for the LGBTQIA community.
For the first time, Nike features the original eight-colour flag on its clothing. This collection is just Nike’s latest work supporting sexual and gender identities. Since 2012, Nike has also provided $3.6 million in financial and in-kind support to LGBTQIA+ causes.
Nike designers gave each shoe a hand-crafted effect by embroidering symbols including the eight-layer Swoosh on the Nike Air Max 90 BETRUE and the rainbow flag on the Tailwind 79 sneaker. This is a nod to the fact that Gilbert Baker handmade everything he designed.
Every shoe’s right sockliner features the Pride flag’s eight colours and explains what each represents. Every left sockliner is pink and presents Baker’s signature.
The Nike 2019 BETRUE collection is releasing in small drops throughout June, which also happens to be Pride month.
