From its beginning as a swimwear brand specialising in minimalist designs and collectable separates , Matteau has grown into a go-to for the timeless sophisticate. Loyal Matteau customers keep returning — especially when planning for warmer weather in coastal locations — because of an accomplished balance between refined style and ease of wearability.
Matteau's Edition 2, 2022 is inspired by a cool kind of escapism. It's not hard to picture oneself basking in the outdoors wearing one or more of the collection's updated slip dresses or shirt designs, or a pair of the relaxed cargo pants on those in-between days before it's suddenly necessary to be wearing as little as possible in the proximity of a refreshing bay beach, at least while the sun's out.
The brand's Afterpay Australian Fashion Week 2022 presentation featured new faces Tari Eatonn and Charisse Mone, in a space laid with sand-coloured carpet and a beach scene splayed across the back wall. A beachy soundtrack completed the mood, leaving guests momentarily transported to more relaxing times and looking forward to summer.
