Kicking off Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Sydney was Toni Maticevski with his highly anticipated Resort 17 collection. His usual romantic, feminine silhouettes were accompanied with a dark, edgier side to the label. Crystal mouth gags, embellished collars and metallic handcuffs accessorised the dreamy collection. A robust palette of black and soft creams dominated the runway along with the introduction of pastel blues, light grey and a vibrant pop of yellow to complete the 42 piece collection. With the innovative use of drapery, cut and asymmetry, Maticevski compliments the female form. Thigh- high splits, cropped tops and exposed zips on voluminous gowns are part of the brands signature DNA. With a sporty feel and a certain structured elegance this collection is the envy of industry elite.
