Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2016 - MR Designer Runway

Every year at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week you can count on the MR Designer Runway show to provide a grand preview of forthcoming spring/summer trends in men’s fashion. This year, designers Arthur Galan, AquilaCalibre, Dom Bagnato, Godwin Charli and MJ Bale had no trouble impressing onlookers with their formal wear. Highlights included cropped pants, three-piece suits and street wear inspired looks!

Calibre most certainly set the tone with its luxurious beachside aesthetic; garments were relaxed yet appeared sophisticated as ever. Here we got a sufficient taste of the cropped pants-no socks style that is currently hot, hot, hot on the fashion scene.




The waistcoat has made a comeback, and Dom Bagnato and Godwin Charli only made it more clear with stunning three-piece suits that dominated the runway. We saw a stylish variety – some waistcoats coordinated with their blazers yet others strongly contrasted!




MJ Bale and Arthur Galan incorporated street wear accents into their collections, accessorising smart outfits with sneakers and partnering traditional shirt and blazer combos with skinny trousers or shorts above the knee for that cool, laid-back undertone.

Inspired Memories – Ben

The sense of being able to share the special occasion with his family and friends as well as the heartfelt speeches were the highlights of Ben’s day as he looks back on his fun whimsical Lauren’s Hall wedding.

“Every time I turned around I was surrounded by hugs, kind words, and the love of all of our amazing guests. The speeches were brilliant, my sister’s in particular was a show stopper. I also have the funniest image of one of my closest friends on the night, who I have known since I was a kid. He is married himself and has a beautiful little girl with another on the way. It cracked me up to see him strolling around with a loved up look on his face, declaring to everyone and anyone that it was the best day of his life. An excellent reinforcement that I had married the love of my life.”

Looking back on his beachside Sydney wedding, Tim remembers that is was important for his suit to match back to the setting and theme of his waterside celebrations.

“I wore a cream three-piece suit, which was custom-made while I was travelling with Ellie in Hoi An, Vietnam. The colour suited the neutral theme we had chosen for her bridesmaid dresses and flowers. It also looked great against the beach setting.”
