Oozing style and masculinity, some of Australia’s top menswear designers – Aquila, Arthur Galan, Brent Wilson, Calibre, Et Al, Godwin Charli, Jayson Brunsdon, Joe Black and MJ Bale – were showcased earlier this month at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s MR Designer Runway. Pastel colours and prints matched back with classic suiting to define the latest looks for the season.

The opening designer, Aquila, kept it sensible with neutral tones and traditional forms. The colour combinations worked back well with the classic silhouettes, oozing an effortless ‘English gentleman’ vibe.

Arthur Galan did what Arthur Galan does best – classics were taken and given a modern edge through detailing. I adore how the pop of blue in a few of the looks colour-coordinated with the shoe laces; now that is an eye for detail!

Next up, Brent Wilson impressed with pastel coloured suits. Even though these standouts appeared as if they had travelled straight from the ‘50s, they still rocked the runway. I guess time doesn’t change everything! Love the white sneakers!

Calibre is the master of print. And we could see this from the latest collection. The prints were both simple and complex, but either way, they stood out against the bold shades. That navy and white striped suit and intricate printed shirt look is one to remember!

Minimalistic, cool and relaxed are three key words to describe Et Al’s one of a kind designs. The monochrome look included two outfits which would be excellent picks for a casual wedding.

Godwin Charli mixed it up with old and new styles. Finely tailored shapes were fused with an on-trend earthy colour palette. Along with the colour scheme, the patterns and external detailing spoke playful but subtle.

If there’s one thing that Jayson Brunsdon knows, it’s texture. Gothic inspired textures were the centrepiece throughout. A definite highlight, the ruffle textured black blazer added instant interest!

Joe Black delivered smart, expensive and timeless – for the young and old. Every model who strutted down the runway could have easily been mistaken for a confident professional in his field!

Finishing off the show, MJ Bale not only ticked the sophistication box but was polished with lovely contrast. The shiny royal blue suit looked fabulous alongside the contrasting sky blue shirt and black and white dotted tie!
