Nat­u­ral clas­sics hark back to ’60s

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

MESOP has been a part of the Aus­tralian land­scape since 2005 and con­tin­ues to present col­lec­tions of soft tai­lor­ing, stylish ba­sics and time­less sil­hou­ettes.

Clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary de­signs in­cor­po­rate nat­u­ral fi­bres and colour pal­ettes with at­ten­tion to de­tail.

Or­ganic cot­ton ba­sics are de­fined by clas­sic cuts, must-have sta­ples and trans-sea­sonal styles.

From light­weight jackets to colour blocked wool coats, knits are tonal and tex­tu­ral, paired with soft tai­lored wo­vens or lay­ered with re-imag­ined ba­sics.

High­lights in­clude the Twiggy Dress and East Side Pant in rich rust which fit with wardrobe favourites.

The feel is of the 1950s and 1960s New York art collection; think Beat­nik Jack Ker­ouac, artist Andy Warhol and mu­si­cian Patti Smith.

Ar­chi­tec­tural lines and re­fined styling flows through mod­ern clas­sic styles of this era.

The colour pal­ette brings back images of days gone by; high­lights of dreamy heather and brood­ing co­gnac are bal­anced with moody mid­night and time­less neu­trals.

Clas­sic knitwear fea­tur­ing new yarns and de­tail­ing com­ple­ment new sep­a­rates styles.

There are nat­u­ral cot­ton linen yarns, clas­sic cable with soft batwing shap­ing and a box style with rib de­tail­ing.

Head­ing into the cooler months with some heav­ier weight fab­rics and yarns, the collection main­tains its fem­i­nine-meets-min­i­mal re­fined sil­hou­ettes and lay­er­ing op­tions.

Perth stock­ists are Spoilt, Lulu and I, Meg and Wally, Et Seq and Since I Found You.
