Up until recent years, luxury men’s streetwear from independent designers has been sorely missed in Australia. Established in the summer of 2016 from Perth, Joseph Carl and his namesake label spearheads a new category of menswear within the country and this week has welcomed a third high-end collection to the local market. As one of Australia’s most exciting emerging streetwear designers, Carl combines a selection of made-to-order garments with ready-to-wear styles boasting tailoring with a new-age twist.
Following on from the successes of two previous collections, 003 draws inspiration from tailoring, but with a directional edge and stylish nuance not seen anywhere else. Defined with a sense of considered minimalism, each piece can be seamlessly worn with another for added versatility and functionality to the daily kit. Each look can effortlessly transform for day to night and forms foundational elements of a modern wardrobe. It is streetwear without the flashy logos and overzealous silhouettes.
“I am incredibly excited to present our third collection, with each piece designed and made in Australia. As we look toward a new future, making more considered choices on the quality and versatility of the clothing we purchase has never been more important. I firmly believe that the intersection of luxury and streetwear holds a particular resonance and our contemporary approach will ensure our designs become well-loved additions to your wardrobe for years to come,” says Carl.
Contributing to the local industry, Joseph Carl proudly designs and produces all of the label’s designs in Australia. The brand lends approachability to luxury fashion as it maintains its commitment to “affordable luxury”: developing a high-quality product at an affordable price and ensuring minimal waste by producing to order as much as possible.
