Fashion Week Australia is here, and Hansen and Gretel was one of my most anticipated shows of the week—and it delivered everything I hoped it would. The label launched in 2009, and has been quietly evolving since, opening its first flagship store in Sydney's Paddington in 2014.
I recently went to the brand's A/W 17 press showings at the Adam Worling PR showroom, and was blown away by its most recent collection. It felt elevated, and I can sense a feeling of maturity in the collection. Soft silk pieces, intermixed with structured tailoring, and interesting details—like a cowl neckline or flared sleeve.
The Resort 18 collection, which just made its way down the runway at Fashion Week Australia, was equally elevated. I could actually imagine wearing every piece on a summer holiday—which is what the Resort collections are all about. We saw a collection full of prints—floral, mixed with leopard print and gingham—and fluid shapes that are easy to move in. There's something in here for everyone.
