Day 5 of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week brought both the Elwood Runway, and the Designer Runway 4, showcasing brands like Alice McCall, Manning Cartell and Life With Bird.
Elwood’s runway brought a breezy, surfer collection with blue wash denim and hints of peach. Their linen shorts will become a staple this summer – they are relaxed, well structured, and could be dressed up for going out. I loved their denim shorts – which were actually shorts! Not underwear like those in stores these days! At just the right length, not too tight, in a worn blue denim, I think I will be living in them this season.
If Elwood captured the relaxed, surfer girl, the Designer Runway captured that effortlessly cool girl who can pull off all white and not spill, that wears silks and sheer dresses with underwear underneath. I wish that were me! Stand-outs were Lucia Arena with silk pants with intricate laser cut outs, and pretty much everything from Alice McCall.
