Australian designer Toni Maticeski emphasises a lack of seasonality in this collection, claiming that he “pretty much decided to focus on the customer…what are they wanting? How are they wearing things? How can it cross over so that it doesn’t look out of place? Because we are delivering to all regions at the same time.” (Vogue.com) Maticevski encapsulates this practice by presenting pieces that are glamorous, statement and transitional, emphasising that he is not a designer of casual wear. There are layered princess gowns, to stunning black pencil skirts with splits, with oversized ruches and random appendages also frequently appearing.  Although heavy in look, Maticevki’s fabric choices are substantially light and allow freedom of movement within an allusion of untouchable glamour. The Maticevski Criterion Full Skirt features a long-length and a removed front band. The elegant skirt is a statement piece for day or night wear, and comes in black, white or paper, demonstrating Maticevski’s creative use of fabrics and neutral tones to create stunning and standout basics. The Criterion skirt can be paired with the Maticevski Creation Crop Top for a sophisticated twenty-first century woman look, as seen in Vogue Australia and Elle Australia. The Creation Crop Top is a sleeveless and flared piece in white or black. Maticevski’s intention to play with new fabrics is demonstrated by the stunning Siege Dress. The off-shoulder, long length dress features a silhouetted corset, which then flares down elegantly from the waist with an uneven hemline for enhanced femininity. The statement and elongating piece, emphasises the feminine shape and infuses modern style with classical elegance making the Siege Dress a highly coveted piece. The pinnacle of glamour, however, is the Maticevski Cyclone skirt. The high waisted, mid-length piece is for the daring and bold woman who prefers statement over subtle. Also exploring new fabrics, the Cyclone skirt flares out from the waist in a semi-strict triangular shape, and features a subtly uneven hemline for hidden elegance. The fabric is layered in cyclone-esque, spiral motions, making the unique skirt a statement piece that embodies feminine sophistication and empowerment.
