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.
We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the traditional owners of land on which this show took place.
