One of Australia’s new breed of designers rising quickly up the ranks, Michael Lo Sordo presented a collection inspired by the idea of androgny. Carefully tailored garments combined masculine and feminine elements, while classic forms such as the peplum were re-worked into a modern style.
Unexpected folding across the back of garments gave them extra dimension. Material was bonded to give it a neoprene effect. Leathers, soft cotton, mesh inserts and lycra gave the collection a sports luxe feel. The colour palette centered around cobalt, black, white, grey and an ice blue. Hemlines were modest while midriffs were exposed. Models wore black Nike pool slippers adding to the tailored sports luxe vibe.
Lo Sordo’s clean and classic lines will appeal to lovers of a minimalist aesthetic. His tailored separates make it easy to mix and match his pieces.
Lo Sordo’s strong collection showed why expectations are so high for this young designer. After last night, we have no doubt he has what is takes to deliver.
