Collection Spotlight: Maticevski SS15-16

Melbourne native Toni Maticevski returned to Australian Fashion Week just five years ago after a four year run at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York. Maticevski’s brand manipulates the female silhouette through innovative drape and cut, particularly asymmetry and volume in his 2015 show. His brand represents artistic fervor and a well-balanced blend of sex-appeal and demure.

Maticevski’s goddesses floated across the runway wearing dresses nothing like we’ve ever seen before. Voluminous flowered tiers, powerful crepe flares, and mouth covering collars were all included in his runway, drenched in a robust palette of pastel blues, purples, greys, blacks, and metallic golds. His high slits and asymmetrical tops certainly gives this collection it’s va-va-voom factor, but this notion is balanced out with Maticevski’s mature draping and voluminous skirts.

A Maticeski woman is a go-getter, youthful but mature, and wears a piece of clothing as if it’s a piece of art. His elegant coats and frothy drapes come across as delectable, and nearly liquefy with movement on the runway. Further, Maticevski hit a homerun with his metallic gold powersuit and gown: his garments are truly for the modern-day superwoman.
