IN THE SPOTLIGHT: CHRISTOPHER ESBER
Christopher Esber’s idea of elegance is whispered rather than shouted, favoring precision tailoring and a purity of expression that set off a structured fluidity.
Mixing masculine and feminine codes, the award-winning Australian designer channels a sophisticated approach with elements of contemporary tailoring infused with a subtle street sensibility via easy constructions, relaxed cuts, raw accents, and sports inspired finishes.
"Looking back at our first collection it still feels relevant and we continue to work with the fundamental elements from that very first collection; tailoring, shirting, embellishment and leather,” notes Esber.
This season, his idiosyncratic perspective offers an elegant minimalism and laid-back sensuality - black and dusty summer shades rule the palette while dresses skim the body playing with draped, twisted, coiled, shirred and cut-out details, often enriched with hardware and mood stones.
