The Trimapee FW 2012 collection was unveiled at the L’Oreal Melbourne fashion festival. The series boasted a tri-hued palette, favoring a rusty, almost flaming orange. The men and women’s apparel set a tone of elegance, yet a bossy attitude. Leather jackets and punk rock boots were combined with breezy silks and chiffons for a confident femininity. The menwear was equally as elegant, with drop-crotch pants, sheer tops and a pop-art floral blazer.
Trimapee designers Mario-Luca Carlucci and Peter Strateas are based in Melbourne, Australia. The pair are self-taught designers, having studied industrial design and communication design respectively. After working on a series of commissioned sculptures, they combined their passion for menwear and took to the sketchbooks. The line is inspired by the Arlecchino, or the joker.
The Trimapee FW 2012 collection is perfect for the rebel fashionista with nothing to prove.
