With the weather in Melbourne showing no signs of cooling, I took to the streets to shoot some of my key looks from the latest Aquila AW17 range - in 30 degree heat may I add. Sharp, refined and no-nonsense tailoring once again dominates Aqulia's latest drop and I'll be showcasing 6 of my favourite looks in this two part series.
Look 1: Casual yet classy
For the first look, I couldn't go past this delightful cotton blend Chocolate blazer, with chinos to match. Luckily for me this jacket was unlined through the body which was pretty damn handy in the heat! I finished off the look with a clean, crisp white shirt and some fantastic brogued tassel loafers.
Look 2: The casual mix-match
For AQ17, Aquila's colour pallet couldn't be any more on point. The dark winter hues from the range compliment each other perfectly, making the mixing and matching of key pieces from the range an absolute breeze. Again I paired another cotton blend blazer with chinos but threw in a textured knit sweater to keep things interesting. This second look was definitely not as forgiving as the first in this weather, I mean, they don't call it a sweater for nothing. Coming into winter though, this look will be a go-to.
Look 3: Textured and tonal
Black and grey, the unofficial team colours of essentially everyone who lives in Melbourne. Even though you usually wouldn't catch me dead in black, I couldn't help myself when it came to this look. The weave through the grey blazer really pops when contrasted by the black chinos and textured tie. It's safe to say it definitely gets my tick of approval!
