Uniform dressing: “I’ve always liked this idea of uniform clothing and interchangeable pieces. It sounds a bit conventional and boring, but I just like a pair of jeans, a white tank top and a big bag.
Blur the gendered lines: “I also like to play with the polarities between masculinity and femininity. I would pair more masculine pants with a more feminine top, for example. It is about mixing these opposites. I’m really a fan of Ludovic de Saint Sernin, a French designer who masters androgynous clothing and embraces gay men as an audience. Australia is still very conformist, where men’s and women’s fashion are still very separate. Dion Lee does a great job. I appreciate that their stock is not divided into sections and is fairly unisex.
Looking back: “I’ve always appreciated Prada for the heritage it has, especially the minimalist Prada of the 90s. I look to timeless brands like the old Céline [under designer Phoebe Philo]The Row and Jil Sander to create a simple and minimalist uniform.
To the output : “The year 2000 had its moment. I will always incorporate facets of it into my own style, but it’s more the form. That Y2K ‘trash’ style where you just threw everything away gives way to a simpler, minimal uniform.
Hamish Tame, Creative Director Le Specs
Nostalgic forms: “This spring, fresh updates on nostalgic 90s and 2000s looks are on trend with exciting new glamorous and sporty styles.”
Rimless: “Y2K rimless styles are proving to be one of the hottest looks this season and are Hailey Bieber’s favourite.”
Narrow rectangular silhouettes: “For both boys and girls, this style continues to perform well and has become a staple.”
The sports envelope: “High fashion updates on the sports wrap go big with a look that nods to the 90s.”
To the output : “After a few years of safer classic trends, we see the global market shifting towards playful and expressive sunglasses. There has been a significant transition where looks are more experimental, colors are more vibrant and shapes are bolder.
Michelle Bañares, creative producer
Cutouts: “Really cool and super playful tank tops, cutout tees with sheer fabric. I like the idea of playing with the basics. Nice tank top pants with cool cutout. It’s a good way to experiment with something different – everyone has a base tank – but subtly.
Ballerinas: “We’ve seen the sneaker trend, recently with the Adidas Sambas, and I think that’s going to continue with dressier things. I like to pair mine with a pantsuit or even a dress.
Long skirts: “I love skirts of all kinds – denim, textured or asymmetrical. You can layer them, for example with a short skirt on top.
To the output : “There are so many trends going on right now. Even though I don’t see any trends going away, I think people will start mixing them up and it will turn into something new.
