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.
