Melbourne Spring Fashion Week went out with a real bang this past Friday night, and I mean literally. With banging tunes and a runway full of to die for looks, the MSFW Resort show concluded a fabulous week of runway shows.
The beautifully bronzed and sunkissed models left us all vying for a Summer getaway and a much needed Spring/Summer wardrobe audit. Think bright colours and a lot of white. On a side note I probably should work on my tan before my wardrobe as the models made me feel white as snow! Ahh!
With an Instagram wishing we were a fly on the wall to their nomadic life, and swimsuits that scream sports-luxe, Australian icon We are Handsome kicked off the show with their luxurious signature printed bikinis as well as their brand spanking new activewear. As per usual, their swimsuits were the hot topic of discussion for days.
Duskii followed with another sports-luxe collection full of neoprene. I was considering taking up water sports for a minute or two to rock their pieces in action but hmm…maybe i’ll just stick to looking pretty on the shore!
When it was time for the men to hit the runway, well it was abs galore. Oh yes with a feature of board shorts to accompany. To be honest i’m not sure if any of the ladies even managed to get a glimpse of the Franks swimsuits. No, I just joke…we did and they were fabulous! Bronzed up muscly models hit the runway in a range of laid back yet fashionable board shorts. Think Bondi-luxe.
A favourite indeed, the much loved Suboo reminded us why they are leaders in the swimsuit department with their flattering printed cheeky bikinis, and it was then that I realised I need to kick my butt into shape for Summer to rock one of their gorgeous two pieces.
Stella Jean, Trelise Cooper, and Easton Pearson all followed with breathtaking resort collections that make us think why the heck are we still here and not on a luxury island?! Lucky for me that is very soon, hint hint stay tuned. All three incorporated bursts of colour with tropical prints…very Africa meets the Caribbean which meets 5 star luxury resort.
See you on the islands!
