One of the coolest things about working with Australian designers like Camilla & Marc is that their seasons are flipped. Spring is fall and vice versa. One would think this would pose a problem, but as most of the fashion world lives in the northern hemisphere, Aussie designers have to get super creative with their collections and turn out pieces that can bridge this gap. The result for fall is always bright and optimistic collections that clash in the best way with the the other offerings. Below is Camilla & Marc’s ocean blue print pant suit which is substantial enough for a chilly October day, but hints at Australia’s sunny summer. Shop the new arrivals here.

Camilla & Marc, brother and sister duo, have really marked their 10 year anniversary with a stand out collection for Fall 2013. They celebrated at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia where they had the coveted slot of opening the festival. The collection is inspired by the layers of the Russian Matryoshka doll, citing parallels between the layered dolls and the brands own layered past.
Vogue.com.AU re-posted a blog post by Tanja G of My Empirical Life of an interview with Camilla and Marc a few days ago and I particularly liked the designers response to this question and wanted to share:
What do you love about Australian fashion?
“We particularly love how Australian fashion is intrinsically influenced by the country’s landscape and culture. People often think that our isolation is restrictive, but I think it means that we’re unique in how we develop our own aesthetic. With that in mind, when we design each collection, we’re mindful of both our Northern and Southern Hemisphere markets, so creating these seasonal collections can be a challenge. I think that internationally, we offer a point of difference that we attribute to living in Australia.”
We could not agree more with their response! Their collections from season to season are always unique with a point of difference that appeals to both hemisphere’s. Keep it up C&M! Here is to many more successful years to come. Cheers!
A sneak peak at our favorite look that we just ordered for Fall 2013, enjoy!
Camilla and Marc, the Australian based label that counts such style crushes as Miranda Kerr and Kirsten Dunst as fans, has designed the most fabulous spring collection. Their exclusive chain, graphic floral and painted stripe print is fresh and flattering, and their little dresses come in vibrant colors and easy silhouettes. Lots of no brainers here.
