STRATEAS.CARLUCCI – Monochrome Magic

Following Aurelio Costarella’s beautiful sorbet colour palette, Strateas Carlucci’s dark mood, sleek styling and strong architectural approach provided quite a contrast. The Australian based label created by Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci has been launched in Paris first with the aim to establish themselves in the overseas markets and make their official Australian debut later.

Although the brand was born just two years ago, they already made a mark on the industry. Their ‘sink or swim’ manoeuvre has paid off and their collections have been picked up by 20 stockists all over the world in Russia, Italy, France, Ukraine, Austria, Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia, Finland, China and Hong Kong.

The label’s vision is to create garments that are timeless through structured and minimal styles. Although the outfits are officially separated into womenswear and menswear on the runway, customers are encouraged to cross gender boundaries and pick out unisex garments from either collections.

The collection showing yesterday was called ‘Fracture’, reflecting the concept of “fractured forms’ with garments created with a sharp, architectural construction and tailoring.

Their signature jacket is made of kangaroo leather accompanied by thick wools and layers upon layers of dark fabrics on the runway. I like their sleek suits and I am sure that both the international and local market will warmly welcome their clean and minimal aesthetic.
