Alex and Georgie Cleary aren’t your average brother/sister duo.
After launching Alpha60 in 2005, this eponymous Melbourne-based label hasn’t missed a beat, and if their winter 13 Drop 2/5 is anything to go by, they’ll continue to stay on top of the trends pushing Australian fashion onto the global sphere.
Echoing the labels ‘fresh take on classic styles and cuts,’ Drop 2/5 reflects the best of the sophisticated quirk for which the brand is revered. Okay, so you may have to build up to the larger-than-life blue checks, but that’s not to say that this fixture of Australia’s fashion elite hasn’t got you covered.
You could opt for an olive cocoon coat or black woollen cape thrown over the chicest of midi skirts or jackets printed with light flecks on the deepest of navy’s and white tiled squares, straight from a Mondrian.
Not feeling angular prints? What about the black cropped pants with just the right amount of sports luxe slouch, silk dresses of pared back floaty femininity or a shoe and sock combo begging to bring out your inner-child, with gloriously rich leather accessories to boot?
With collaborations with ASOS, Sportsgirl and Polaroid under their belt, as well as an array of fashion weeks and festivals, Alpha60’s latest demonstration of unconventional luxury promises more of its distinctively unique edge.
