Bec&BridgeRAFW11 pink hat akubra 1

It was Elena Perminova who first alerted me to my dire need for a pink hat, and it was Bec&Bridge’s recent collection at Rosemount Australia Fashion Week that sealed the deal. The hats were the result of a collaboration with hatmaker Akubra. I love love a good collaboration, and I think it was a brilliant move for  Aussie label Bec&Bridge to pair up with Akubra – there is nothing more quintessentially Australian than an Akubra! (They usually look a little more like this). Clearly I need a pink akubra to throw in with a white tee, boyfriend jeans, and some stilettos. Expect these to be popular with the street stylers!

Definitely one of my favorite collections to come out of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week was Lover’s lace amazingness. Bloggers go gaga for pretty much anything lace or crochet, so I’m quite sure this collection will have the rest of the fashion world in a tizzy too. Wondering who will wear this to a premiere, Florence Welch in the long white lace? Kate Bosworth in the red lace with nude ballet flats? And imagine the editorials! Can’t wait to see this collection in action.

street style rafw sydney australia

christine centenera celine rafw sydney street style

Checking out Sydney street style during fashion week, the standout element was all of the color!

I love seeing how the girls used it, and I’m definitely inspired to work some more brights into my own wardrobe, in particular pinks, reds, and citron. And Christine, what can I say? She deserved her very own page in this post. She’s wearing my dreampants with a Bassike tee and a killer collar. Well done Sydney!

We’ve been seeing loads of innovative designs using digital prints in recent years, but Josh Goot is the undeniable master of the craft. The enlarged brush strokes reminded me of the artist James Nares’s paintings. I can’t wait to see how the tastemakers wear these looks in real life! This is one of those collections that has my imagination running wild – I’m picturing Anna Dello Russo with a fantastical headpiece on, or Christine Centenera in one of the paint splattered skirts paired with a structured black top. And the shoes! Just imagine all of the beautiful shoes you could wear with these dresses! The last is obviously my pick, I think some fierce black booties would look so sharp. I’m always happy to see Australian talent thriving, stay tuned for more RAFW posts this week!

More Sydney street style, particular favs of mine. I so want both the tops these girls are wearing. So Wang right now. The second top is from Witchery but unfortunately I haven’t been able to find it. Perforated leather, Mmm.
