Toni Maticevski, the Australia-based designer whose don’t-call-it-an-eveningwear brand (his words) counts the United States as its second-largest market behind Australia.   Other examples of his upcycling: a mesh spaghetti-strap dress in cloud gray (the collection’s best piece) and a laser-cut, crinkly acetate poncho. Both were relatively classic in shape but defiantly anti-classic in the use of materials not normally associated with said shape. “I want to challenge my customer every season,” Maticevski said. “The more sort of ‘out there’ it is, the more she responds to it.”   With a classic take on fitted dress, Maticevski’s black and latte-hued perfecting dress is crafted with a fitted streamlined silhouette that’s finished with shortened sleeves and v-neckline, and figure-defining waist. Balance it with jet-black heels. Those are obvious things, and this real style has caught on like fashion wildfire with stars such as Rihanna getting involved.   Showcases the label’s mastery of contemporary sophistication, Maticevski’s plethora top is a one-shouldered style featuring an intricate hook detailing at the shoulder. Available in two differing colour ways – latter and black, this one-shoulder blouse has a loose silhouette for enduring comfort. Build on the modern feel with a raw-edged skirt and offbeat accessories.   Making a sophisticated return for ss17, Maticevski’s elite pencil black and latte pencil skirt is one of the best ways to wear it. It’s cut to the label’s signature folded panel detailing with a front split, and is designed to sit high on the waist. Tuck in a perfectly clashing shirt, completing an offbeat ladylike look with embellished sandals.
