Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) Designer Runway Four presented the spring/summer 15 collections from above., búl, Chorus, Gorman, Kuwaii, Leonard St., Limedrop, Livia Arena, Matcho Suba and Tettmann. Doust.

Búl presented a series of timeless pieces with draping fabric and neutral tones, keeping to coordinates and monochromatic ensembles with loose fitting silhouettes.

Livia Arena’s collection stated sportsluxe is here to stay, using foam aitrex as a prominent material, contrasted with sporty satin pieces. In soft pinks and pastel blues, oversized pockets and draw string hoods brought the sport and sleek, where drop-hem flounce skirts promised a touch of luxury. 

To take inspiration from classic, corporate clothing and make it stylish is a talent in itself, and  Above. did just that, presenting a monotone range consisting of light weight trench coats, tailored vests with trousers and reinventing the shirt dress with a collar and bib.

Kuwaii took naughtical influences and made them their own, with thick stripes and a navy and pastel coral colour palette. Mix and match coordinates and Jackie-O shift dresss were dominant in this collection.

Chorus played on embellishment with laser-cut acrylic pieces decorating garments constructed of layered fabric and asymmetric forms.

Limedrop presented bright multi-coloured geometric prints, bold lilac pieces and a unique print that featured mineral rocks. They brought back the long line tailored vest and styled it on dresses for a vibrant spring look.

Layers were a staple for Leonard St., who proved the sky’s the limit with skirts layered over midi dresses and camisoles over long sleeve tops.

Always raising the bar when it comes to quirky, Gorman presented a compilation of fun tropical prints and the graphic patterns of the Kate Kosek + Gorman range, pairing knee length shorts and skirts with oversized rain macs and loose-fit tees.

Tettmann Doust was all about body armour, featuring body jewellery, crochet vests and  harnesses amongst sheer black and abstract patterned fabrics. 

Matcho Suba turned heads with designs inspired by our beloved city itself. Myki cards hung off model’s waist lines, a jumbo clutch made a statement with the letters ‘MELBS’ stitched onto it and a headpiece featuring the Luna Park ‘Mr. Moon Mouth’ encaptulated the streets of Melbourne into a fashionable, edgy collection clad with leather, netting and tassels.
