It’s no holds barred with Wayne Cooper’s Spring Summer collection and his woman is dressed to kill. Fierce and flirty come together and get a sports luxe treatment in vibrant hues of cobalt, turquoise and yellow. The designer has built a firm following among fashion fans looking for high-octane glamour and this season is no exception with his aptly named collection All Tomorrow’s Parties. Sultry, form-fitting shapes and peek-a-boo cut-outs have us dreaming of long summer evenings spent dancing until the sun comes up.
To find out where it all comes from, we caught up with Wayne Cooper to chat inspirations, key looks and everything he loves most about summer…
Myer: Describe your design style in three words…
Wayne Cooper: Clean, sexy and modern.
M: Tell us about All Tomorrow’s Parties…
WC: The collection has a sports luxe theme, so it’s very graphic, monochromatic and sporty with a fitted sexy silhouette. I’ve focused on textiles including crisp monochromatic stretch fabrics, cotton mesh, contrast detailing and marble printed scuba.
M: Which designer, past or present, inspires you the most?
WC: I always loved Helmut Lang and Katherine Hamnett when I was growing up in London. Lately I love Cushnie et Ochs from Spain and Raf Simons at Dior.
M: What excites you most about Spring Summer?
WC: I can use more white fabrics! People love the idea of summer, holidays, cocktails, parties, good times…
M: Describe your perfect summer’s day.
WC: Being with my family and friends at Tamarama beach… or any exotic beach location will suit just fine!
