Australian Fashion Week Recap: Our Favorites

Darcy and Jane, two of Shopbop buying’s finest. were in Sydney for Australian Fashion Week. Here, they offer their take on their days Down Under.

Favorite shows:
Darcy: Lover’s 10th anniversary show at the Sydney Opera House was spectacular! Lots of red lace, blush, ivory, and black. Zimmermann had great prints, cutout details, and standout maxi skirts and dresses.
Jane: Dion Lee had amazing printed skirts and a cool color palette. I loved the structured dresses. In all, it was a gorgeous collection. Camilla and Marc took on colorblock with stunning results. Loved the black blazer with neon sleeves!

Biggest color story from the week:
Darcy: We saw light yellow and pastels, but also a lot of bold colors like deep green and cobalt blue. There were hits of neon and lots of white, too.
Jane: I noticed lots of corals, pastel blue, light mint green, loads of cobalt, and bubble pink. Mixing these colors was big, an extension of the current season’s bright separates trend.

Standout runway/showroom trend:
Jane: We saw colorblocking, separates, and unique prints everywhere. There were lots of new wide-leg pants in prints and solids. Some cropped, others with slits up the side! So chic for resort!

Standout street style trends:
Jane: The Aussies are wearing bright pants and skirts, blazers, lots of studded shoes, and lots of Alexander Wang. We spotted some teal nail polish, which was so cool. Darcy and I each brought some back.
