Set up in a converted warehouse in Sydney’s Waterloo district was Dion Lee II, the cooler younger sister brand to the designer’s main line, which saw an easy-to-wear, more affordable rendition of what was presented in New York several weeks ago for Autumn/Winter 2014-15.
Fundamental to the collection were dark pinstripes among pops of navy, cobalt and soft denim as well as origami like folds, splits and crisp whites.
The runway gave off a cool-girl cross menswear vibe, with loose tailoring, collared business shirts and slouchy suits contrasted against a feminine colour palette and a couple of little black dresses.
All in all, Dion Lee schooled the audience on how to re-invent denim in a fresh way and rock a varsity look with college stripes and a clean folded bomber jacket.
