Christopher Esber SS 2020 ready-to-wear collection
After 10 successful years in business, Christopher Esber keeps on manifesting his inspirations and the importance of longevity in fashion through his designs.
Known for timeless, sophisticated, and elevated pieces, the brand represents everything, but momentary, and therefore keeps us coming back for their collections wanting more and more. And just like that, the Australian has earned a loyal following of It girls for his cool take on sophistication marked by cutout-laden, hybrid designs.
Informed by his background in menswear, Christopher Esber collections are anchored by the designer’s love of tailoring, juxtaposed with effortless fluidity and quietly sensual details, and his particular brand of relaxed elegance has found celebrity fans like Solange Knowles, Zendaya, and Emily Ratajkowski.
"Looking back at our first collection it still feels relevant and we continue to work with the fundamental elements from that very first collection; tailoring, shirting, embellishment, and leather.” says Esber.
When it comes to matching leather pieces — like the sandals in this new collection — and long-lasting fashion, you really can’t go wrong. Classic and stunning, it proves to be a strong relationship to bet on if you’re looking for timeless clothes. That brings us to the news for spring: Esber's latest collection that hit stores in spring 2020, expands on these parallels.
Given that he’s Australian, and a fan of the seaside, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Christopher Esber would come up with a sartorial hook-like “office to the beach.” Debuting silky purple gradient sets, lace inserts, and skin-baring details with barbell hardware. Find them alongside his Instagram-worthy hybrid pieces, bikini tie details — for cinched waists, wrapped bare midriffs, and ruching (a new detail for him) — plus his signature cutouts.
Considering the moment we're living in, their team decided to produce less, creating smaller collections and releasing two to three a year, as opposed to the previous standard of at least four. It’s an adjustment that many in the fashion industry are looking to make, as the relentless cycle of newness reaches an unsustainable peak.
If this ever eventuates, we’re sure many people would jump at the chance to embrace yet another expression of Christopher Esber’s talent.
