Lee Mathews is one of my favourite Australian designers and one of the most wearable brands of the moment, so it was her show that I was looking forward to all week — it didn't let me down.
The show focused on its core DNA of simplicity, inclusivity and sustainability, which is so important in fashion going forward. The reworked prints and fabrication from archive collections bought it back to the root of the brand, with some of Mathews' best pieces being made again for a new audience.
The collection is a all-rounder, with wardrobe basics, sheer dresses, utilitarian jackets and puff sleeves; all pieces for the modern women with a versatile wardrobe. Loved it!
The brand's classic sheer materials were present, as were longer silhouette dresses, which Lee is known for. The quilted skirt bought back childhood memories — not to mention a cute, full bloom body suit which I fell in love with.
The resort '20 collection was considered not only to be an evolution of the brand, but the evolution of the clothing. Plus, with the introduction of footwear, it really was a special collection to mark 20 years.
