The tenth Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival launched last night with Myer’s S/S 15/16 showcase getting a resounding ‘ten’ out of Jennifer Hawkins, who walked Brisbane for the first time.
The runway was reminiscent of a Michael Jackson track with a predominantly black and white palette, punctuated with pops of colour. Stripes and neutrals also made a cameo with a few designers playing the white on white card.
Structured silhouettes, asymmetrical hemlines, cut outs, and exaggerated v-necks were on high rotation, adding another dimension to the labels’ collections.
The decade of dreamy 70s style also dominated the runway, from floating floral fabrics and flares, to fringing on sweaters, skirts, bags and jackets.
Myer’s suite of menswear made a bold statement with burnt orange, red, tropical tones and plenty of Hawaiian print shirts, shorts and even jackets on show.
Some Spring/Summer staples also got a run, including suits in marine, grey and neutral tones and of course the cult classic, the black leather jacket.
All the collections dropped in store yesterday and as part of MBFF’s ‘Own it’ campaign, shoppers can snap up their favourite looks right off the runway, here.
