Since establishing his eponymous label in 2010, Australian designer Christopher Esber has gained a global reputation for his precision tailoring and structured silhouettes. Coming from a tailoring background, Christopher Esber has adopted masculine structural techniques to his pieces, therefore creating unmatchable sophistication with strict and composed styles. Each garment also has a subtle street sensibility in its relaxed cuts and sports inspired finishes, which radiate the confidence and strength of the modern woman. What makes Christopher Esber unique is his intention for easy-to-wear luxury, which in its own laid-back and relaxed way creates a distinctive sense of sophistication and elegance. “I design for a woman who loves fashion but she is not willing to surrender herself to it,” says Esber (ChristopherEsber.com.au). “Coming from Australia there is a sense of ease and the undone about what I do. Even if something is more conceptual, there is always a feel of release to it.” In AW15, Christopher Esber emphasises his storytelling artistry with consistent and minimalistic themes. The Christopher Esber Sleeveless V-neck crepe wave tank top in black and chalk, is an effortless, yet statement piece for its duality between its seemingly casual design and bold, sexy attitude. Alternatively, there is the Christopher Esber short-sleeved v-neck wave crepe v tee, for a casual luxury look. This stunning tee, also in black and chalk, is the ideal basic for day-to-night wear that demonstrates the conceptual purity of Christopher Esber’s ideas. The Christopher Esber short-sleeved scoop neck crepe wave tee, also in Christopher Esber’s classic colours of black and chalk, has been deemed the pinnacle of a sophisticated basic by Vogue Australia and Elle Magazine. It shows Christopher Esber’s love for dressing “women with their own sense of style and identity, women who will incorporate a Christopher Esber piece with other garments and brands. I’m not into ‘head to toe’ looks.” (Christopher Esber at Parlour X). Amongst the minimalistic elegance of an artist’s collection, there is always a standout, embellished piece that contradicts the story without deterring too much from the overall theme. This is the Christopher Esber Raffia Micro Skirt featuring fringing and a longer length, in neutral black or chalk. Its counterpart, the sleeveless Christopher Esber Raffia vest coat, a favourite of Blogger Margaret Zhang, is a sophisticated and on-trend piece that is the perfect display of high-street style and attention to effortlessness in everyday dressing.
