Last night, Australian retail giant David Jones presented its Autumn/Winter 2019 campaign, coined “The Art of Living” at the culture hub of Hobart, contemporary art gallery MONA. With the runway making up part of a two-day immersive experience, the high-end department store looked to push the envelope for menswear this incoming season.
Showcased on the runway to 120 guests, key brands included Lacoste, Ted Baker and Calibre if there is one thing to take away, its that colour will be in full swing when the cooler weather hits.
“The Art of Living autumn winter season at David Jones is about expressing yourself with colour and texture,” David Jones General Manager of Womenswear and Accessories, Bridget Veals, has said.
“A strong injection of colour and prints features heavily in this season’s buy which translate beautifully across all categories. With striking shades highlighted across the campaign and collections instore such as bright prints, muted blues, and warm neutrals, it’s a welcome departure from the darker palette we traditionally see on the runway at this time of year.”
Colour blocking and print clashing were a common theme throughout the looks, and casual tailoring – banning the tie and dress shoes – was the trend of the hour. Additionally, Cameron Robbie – aka Margot Robbie’s younger brother – made his model debut as he walked alongside top models Gemma Ward, Jessica Gomes and Victoria Lee.
