Great Southern Land

There are a few new Australian designers that have been totally blowing my mind. Doing amazing new things and really breaking the mold.

Only has two collections under his belt, only out of Fashion School for a short time. He was recently featured in Australian Vogue. Is definitely one to watch! His collections feature alot of insane laser cutting and futuristic tailoring.

SUMMER 08/09
The laser cut leggings are to die for - remind me of the amazing Rodarte ones. Also love the tailored slashes that he uses on the orange pants.

I adore the colour palette for this collection (I'm a total sucker for a good pale blue). The lookbook is especially lovely - very desaturated, really emphasizes the colours of the collecton. The laser cut folds look stunning - amazing pattern, texture and shadows. 
His tailoring is out of this world. Cutouts in knees and elbows, amazingly paneled jackets, sheer pants!!

These guys have been around for about three seasons, and am already so loving what they do - its exciting, different, and doesn't play on any necessary "trends". Also gives me another reason to covet leopard print right now.

I also die for their pants - insanely perfect slashed jeans and skinnyskinny pants.
SUMMER 08/09
And I'm always won over by a good bodysuit (obsession much? But they are so handy!) and these are some of the best I've seen - looove the cut outs and LOVE the dreamcatcher details. Have already had a look for some on Trademe (to DIY into a necklace hopefully!)
The bikeshorts (another staple I couldn't live without) with cut outs are fab too.
