Pic­nic din­ing out on Perth

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

THE face of Perth has be­come more so­phis­ti­cated in re­cent years.

As the city comes of age, Perth fash­ion la­bel Pic­nic wanted to cap­ture a re­laxed col­lec­tion against the re­fined ur­ban­ity of the sky­line.

The Art Gallery of WA rooftop proved the per­fect base from which to shoot.

Pic­nic’s au­tumn win­ter 2016 col­lec­tion brings to­gether new sil­hou­ettes and beau­ti­ful fab­rics for ef­fort­less style.

Sheen and tex­ture is king this win­ter, with fring­ing, fea­ture washes and coated fab­rics adding in­trigu­ing de­tail.

Long-line capes and tu­nic-length vests are paired with satin pants, fa­tigued denim and matt midi skirts. A new colour pal­ette of mid­night navy, burnt olive and in­dus­trial greys form the base neu­trals, backed up by clas­sic black with pops of rasp­berry rose.

Pic­nic buyer Jana O’Cal­laghan said this sea­son’s col­lec­tion cap­tured the de­sign ethos of sim­ple el­e­gance and ef­fort­less style. “We have some new and edgy sil­hou­ettes that we know our cus­tomers will en­joy,” O’Cal­laghan said.

“Many styles this sea­son will be pro­duced lo­cally in Perth, which we are par­tic­u­larly proud of.

“Be­ing a WA owned and run com­pany for over 30 years, we are proud of our lin­eage and pleased to show­case WA crafts­man­ship.”
