The last of the summer sun is fleeting and soon enough, Australia will be plunged back into the wintery cold. Holding onto the Sydney sunshine for a little while longer, MatchesFashion has launched an exclusive Spring/Summer 2019 capsule with Australian resort and swimwear label, Commas.
Drawing from his beachside lifestyle, Sydney-sider and creative director Richard Jarman has joined forces with the luxury retailer to bring fourth relaxed silhouettes with a distinctive modern, masculine sensibility. From silk-blend shirting to contemporary swim bottoms, the eight-piece capsule boasts the essence of an Australian summer with international appeal.
“In keeping with our ongoing embrace of aquatic landscapes, culture and history, the collection was inspired by Le Grand Bleu: the famed 1988 French free-diving film from maverick director Luc Besson. In addition to our signature nautical stripes, pieces in the collection feature an original water-painting sailboat print, painted with thick brushstrokes, as if it were an oil painting, which is consistent with our ongoing nods to classic and modern art. The silks are printed and hand-dried in Australia, and each fabric was chosen based on how they feel against the skin, as well as their ability to retain that soft feeling, even after printing.
This capsule collection features colours inspired by this particular moment in time — like the crimson printed statement shirt. It’s a strong colour palette created especially for this collaboration with MATCHESFASHION.COM, a bold take on resort wear for their discerning clientele.”
