Neue Fashion • Issue 4 • Fashion • Feature • BY Brett Phillips
In a world dominated by prejudice and judgement, we take the time to celebrate those who overcome the constraints and limitations of everyday life, move beyond the pragmatics of function and embrace a world of emotion, creativity, aesthetics and the sacred. A world where soft lines meet structured silhouettes, pleats embrace prints and power succumbs to play.
From Vetements to Valentino, Balmain to Balenciaga, Thom Browne to Tom Ford, the game has changed. Gone are the borders and boundaries, the can’t do’s and must not’s. This is a game of personal expression and fashion freedom, and it’s time to choose your team.
One of the great virtues of art is that it enables us to see the world differently while affording us the freedom to explore the intersections of our senses. Neue Fashion uncovers a world where classic meets creative.
Long considered by many as an exotic antipodean outpost, our collective identity has always been shaped by a constant tension between the ancient, the old world and the new. With a nod to the past and a warm embrace of the future, Neue Fashion takes a grand tour through the sculptural forms, soft lines and strong silhouettes of our European and Australian masters.
