Australia’s fashion elite packed into Sydney’s Carriageworks last night to watch the Witchery Spring 2014 runway show dubbed “New Mood.” In a lengthy show that went for over 13 minutes, the retail chain served up an extensive and stylish offering for guests, including Lindy Klim, Nadia Bartel and Samantha Harris.
Nicole Pollard led the way for other models, like Eliza Humble and Ollie Henderson, kicking off the showcase of androgynous tailored pieces, casual safari-esque ensembles and on-trend fabrics like chambrays, lurex and leather.
While the cold weather was more than enough to get us keen for spring, Witchery’s new range also sends our minds to warmer days. Looks like leather’s sticking around for the desirable season too, with models showcasing harsh leather bustiers, studded backpacks and plenty of fringe detailing.
The strong black leathers will work in seamlessly with the store’s safari-themed pieces, including khaki jumpsuits and waterfall blazers along with zebra print joggers and fine-pleat midi skirts.
Although we can always count on Witchery to dish out lots of monochromatic staples, we were impressed with the brand’s incorporation of chambrays and denims, sheer spotted overlays, pops of hot pink and our top pick — the shiny gold and silver lurex pieces. We think these metallics could be a big hit for the upcoming season, so much so that Nicole closed the runway in a show-stopping metallic anorak.
