THE OTHER PLAY­ERS

GQ (Australia) - - STYLE -

COM­MAS

Qual­ity and sar­to­rial vigour are not usu­ally words as­so­ci­ated with men’s re­sortwear, yet that’s ex­actly what’s in play here – a unique, clean and stylish way to wear sum­mer and be­yond. com­mas.cc

PE NA­TION

The right side of the ac­tivewear trend, its tech­ni­cal qual­i­ties and ur­ban aes­thetic align with a fast-paced way of life. The Club Sport col­lec­tion will be the first foray into menswear, so ex­pect over­sized ’90s hip-hop, uni­sex ap­peal mod­ernised with un­ortho­dox colour pal­ettes in­clud­ing khaki, baby pink and red. Avail­able from Oc­to­ber 2017. pe-na­tion.com

CHRIS RAN LIN

Lin made an in­stant an­nounce­ment of what was to come with his stand­out RMIT grad­u­a­tion col­lec­tion a few years back. Known for his unique ways with knitwear, of the in­fi­nite pos­si­bil­ity of what can be done with wool, it’s about ex­plor­ing elab­o­rate shapes while meld­ing tra­di­tional el­e­ments of tai­lor­ing. Wool­mark agrees, nam­ing him a lo­cal menswear fi­nal­ist for 2017.

chris­ran­lin.com DOU­BLE RAINBOUU

Founded a year ago, this beach and re­sort wear la­bel has quickly found its foot­ing by play­ing with print and prov­ing Hawai­ian shirts were not to be locked in hazy mem­o­ries of Mag­num PI, but ripe for an up­date. Lively and dis­tinc­tive, founders (ex Ksubi boys) Toby Jones and Mikey Nolan are re­turn­ing some fun to lo­cal menswear. dou­blerain­bouu.com

SENER BESIM

For too long there were too many la­bels de­liv­er­ing the same thing with eyewear. En­ter this epony­mous out­fit from the Scan­lan & Theodore GM – a unique and al­lur­ing take on what’s avail­able, with del­i­cate hand-made de­sign aes­thet­ics set­ting them apart. No won­der Dover Street Mar­ket and Co­lette are stock­ists. senerbesim. com

STRATEAS. CARLUCCI

Peter Strateas and Mario-luca Carlucci are trail­blaz­ers and de­serv­ing of all they’ve al­ready achieved – GQ and Wool­mark awards, the first Aus­tralians to of­fi­cially present menswear at Paris and Mi­lan, and now, a re­turn to Italy as part of the Aus­tralian Pitti show­case. strateas­car­lucci.com

TEN PIECES

The brains be­hind Syd­ney’s Ice­bergs restau­rant, Mau­rice Terzini orig­i­nally launched this back in 2011 as a cap­sule col­lec­tion with Ian Nes­sick. A mix of con­tem­po­rary, sim­ple sil­hou­ettes in­spired by street and sports wear, punk, each col­lec­tion cov­ers, fun­nily enough, ten pieces that can be mixed and matched – able to be worn sin­gu­larly or in to­tal­ity. ten­pieces.com.au
