Melbourne born and bred lifestyle clothing brand Best Jumpers is launching a new Autumn/Winter 2022 collection, available at its Gertrude Street store in Fitzroy. The collection focuses on unisex, elevated casual wear and taps into both streetwear and athleisure influences.
Founder and menswear designer Dylan Best (ex-Ralph Lauren and Club Monaco, NYC) launched his brand in Melbourne in 2018. Since then, it has quickly earned a reputation for offering elevated casualwear staples that put fit and fabric first. Every season, Dylan strives to improve Best Jumpers offering and the AW22 collection is a testament to this. The focus, for the now international brand, has and continues to be selecting the highest quality fabrics and working tirelessly to nail the perfect fit. The new collection encompasses streetwear with an Australian twist – that is, an emphasis on colours and a minimal sense of ease.
“After four years, we’ve really narrowed down and defined what the brand is, what our core product is and what we stand for. I’m proud to say this season it is true representation of our brand. I’ve drawn a lot of inspiration for this collection from a recent trip to New York, where I previously studied and worked as a designer,” says Dylan.
For AW22, Dylan has continued to focus on designing casual, unisex garments that can be effortlessly styled into street ready looks. Predominantly cut, sewn, and made in Melbourne, the collection champions quality Japanese fabrics to create relaxed garments that exude a laidback aesthetic. Favoured fabrics include traditional cotton, cotton mixes, technical fabrics and merino wool knits,
ideal for when temperatures drop.
This season the core Best Jumpers range features classic colourways of caramel, light grey, soft green and deep navy, with the brand’s iconic wombat icon emblazoned on each piece. New additions to the range include 100% Australian merino wool beanies and V-neck sweaters in a boxy fit available in three vibrant colourways: magpie, electric pink and brown melange. Outerwear includes a cotton mac coat with contrasting white stitching, a neoprene bomber and a short jacket – all items designed for layering during the cooler months. And for the first time, a new relaxed carrot fit pant and overshirt, available in a luxurious cord fabric. Best Jumpers’ popular elasticated relaxed dress pants also now come in wool flannel with a fun pop of magenta.
The collection also welcomes a new addition to the Best Jumpers family: the SNEAK01 sneaker. It only seemed fitting for the brand to introduce a casual yet dressing footwear option to neatly complete a look. The sneakers feature gum soles and are available in white and black colourways.
Best Jumpers are currently stocked online and at the Best Jumpers Gertrude Street store in Fitzroy.
