To start off my string of MBFWA blog posts, I'm pleased to introduce the 'FRACTURE' collection by STRATEAS.CARLUCCI, Aussie-based label created by Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci. The duo aims to merge art and design where most of their pieces only reach a run of 10 that are scattered amongst collectors from across the globe. Their aesthetic was clearly presented in their impeccably tailored ensembles and borderline androgynous designs. I've always believed an all-black ensemble should play on texture and it was impressive to see different fabric treatments that did just that. From sheer panelling to pleating and flowing drapes to tough leather, one could definitely say these guys know how to rep "all-black errythang". My highlight piece of the collection was the leather jacket featuring a centred zip on the back. As soon as the model turned my eyes lit up. Definitely something unexpected and refreshing to see on this otherwise classic, wardrobe staple.
