Zsadar at The Wearers Right

Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to preview the new collection by Western Australian menswear label Zsadar. In collaboration with L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, the collection was showcased by The Wearers Right, which featured 17 brands in a pop up space at the Thousand Pound Bend. Greeted by the amazing designer behind the label Shane Newton, I had the opportunity to hear his inspiration behind his new collection Spring/Summer 2012/2013 titled Mysteries of the Organism. 
Designed and produced in Western Australia, what I love about this menswear label is that it can translate to any gender, with the garments taking on draping, asymmetrical lines and attention to detail. Made from wearable fabrics such as bamboo, silk and linen, expect the unexpected with details such as exposed seams,reversed fabrics and pants with gathered legs and stretch fabric behind the knees for extra stretch and comfort. Shane has thought about how the fabric hangs on the body and played around with conventional design. I wish him every success with this collection and I'm sure we will be hearing a lot more from him in the future.
