Fashionz.co.nz Feature: Little Brother At Air NZ Fashion Week
In an ode to the punk stylings of Sid Vicious and bands like The Clash, Little Brother's collection was very subdued. Called 'Replicant', the collection mainstay was skinny leg black pants tucked into mid calf boots and beige or black berets, atop long unkempt hair. Completing the look were extra long scarves, low slung fabric bags and black leather fingerless gloves.
Jackets went pocket crazy, with buttons and slots all over Blazers, Leather jackets, trench coats and puffas. Stand-out detailing included fish tail backs, hoodies and long trailing drawstrings. One Military-inspired piece in navy went a step further with buttoned fold-overs on the sleeves. Jackets were buttoned all the way to the top, shirt collars peeking from underneath. Colour palette included anything and everything, as long as it was black, white or grey. Every jacket, regardless of type, was double breasted or had faux double breasted detailing.
Cambridge V necked jumpers with black ribbing revealed a bit more of the shirts, understated in muted checks and block prints of the palest grey. Once again shirts were buttoned to the top, allowing the focus to fall on heavily starched pointed or Ghandi collars.
A pinstriped suit coat and brown marl jacket were the highlights of the collection and offered pattern and colour highlights that distinguished themselves in the range - which promises a Little Brother Autumn/Winter pushing the boundaries of Anarchy.
