MBFWA: Christopher Esber does grown-up chic for S/S 2014


Christopher Esber is often labelled as ‘the next big thing’ in Australian fashion, and after his show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia¬†yesterday, it is abundantly clear why.

Known for sharp, feminine designs with a clean aesthetic, Esber has quickly become a favourite among the fashion set. His Summer 2013/14 collection was perfection personified, with sharply tailored silhouettes creating the ultimate feminine-chic look. Set in a warehouse that was complete with scaffolding and mirrors, this was clearly a no-nonsense show, and the clothes were the sole focus. Smart button-up shirts were given a chic edge with sheer, panelled sleeves, while separates that were tinged with a metallic look hinted at a subtle, grown-up sex appeal.

The overall look for the collection was cool and understated but definitely not plain; rather it oozed raw sophistication and was promptly raved about by the fashion set.
