The designer team of Ten Pieces offers wardrobe essentials by demonstrating that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Because the pieces are intended to be mixed and matched, you can wear one piece or 10 from their Resort ’19 collection shown this week at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Each layer elevates the look from street to chic. The collection was inspired by influences of modern day punk, sportswear and parkour. This lifestyle brand served up modern comfort clothes in uniquely simple, sophisticated and accessible ways.

This season’s Ten Pieces collection has been stamped with vertical prints that are influenced by industrial architecture and landscapes. Their sporty pink modes have a more refined overall look that’s suggested through detailed finishes. In references to Sharpies, the collection was styled with a raw and quintessentially Australian edge. There are merino jersey looks in soft earthy colors that offset black and white staples. Modern day monochrome twin sets have been designed to offer the wearer a simple, yet elegant choice in casual dressing.

Leo & Lin, another brand in this group presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, creates clothes for the woman who is tough and warrior-like in spirit, but draws on a sophisticated softness. She embraces fashion and seeks her own empowerment. With a philosophy steeped in crafted elegance and built on quality, they like to play with notions of avant-garde contouring. In their collection, some styles are whimsical because fashion should always be fun. “Every woman is an individual, a realist, a dreamer, cultured and independent. The brand caters to a woman’s changing needs.” On the runway, Leo & Lin showed daywear, cocktail pieces, street styles and glamorous gowns for evening.
