Sydney-based designer Toni Maticevski has become renowned for his practiced process of draping, resulting in evening wear that retains masculine and sophisticated qualities entwined with a classically feminine edge. Passionate about the beginning and the end of a design process, Maticevski’s emphasis on “finishing” is evident in the refined Resort 2016 collection, featuring a new range of classy separates and gorgeous gowns. Maticevski’s editing of a collection is erratic - demonstrated by looks that do not develop a sensible storytelling formula, but rather a postmodern erraticism that offer different tones with each piece. His love for fabrication however is always clear with exaggerated detailing and mix-and-match materials utilised in Pre-SS16, demonstrating a little summertime freedom in a consistently structured and polished line. The first piece of the Maticevski Pre-SS16 puzzle is the Vector cocktail dress in black/star print. Featuring a sleeveless, fitted bodice design with a high round neck and dropped waist, the unique piece is embellished with intricate star print detailing on a full skirt bottom. The standout piece is ideal for a formal, summer’s evening occasion. The Maticevski Interconnection Box Top featuring a beautifully intricate spider orchid print, is a short-sleeved boxy cut top with contrast black bound edges. The chic top can be paired with the Maticevski Personify pencil skirt in black for a show-stopping weekend look. For the pinnacle of edgy, twenty-first century woman glamour, there is the Wasp Strapless Bodice in black or white. Featuring a subtle sweetheart neckline with a cropped, fitted silhouette, centre back exposed zip closure and a bustier-style fold at the front, the elegant yet sexy top is an effortless night-out piece that is sure to have people talking. Toni Maticevski’s postmodernist creativity comes to light with the unique Choreographic Top in black or white. The top features a cape style shape with a round neck constructed from fluidly pleated georgette, and a hemline featuring structured netting creating elegant folds around the body when worn. Portraying new ways to highlight the female silhouette without overly feminising his pieces, Toni Maticevski empowers women by creating styles that are practical, sophisticated and masculinely structured to give modern women the functionality they require in fashion. To complete the Maticevski Pre-SS16 story is the statement Creature Longline Skirt in black or white. The long-length pencil skirt features a seductive front split and exaggerated ruffle detail at the hem and is a chic and statement piece for any evening occasion, as seen on the Harper and Harley blog and Sydney Style Edit.com.
