It is Song for the Mute’s reinterpretation of convention which has brought their popularity to global levels since the brand’s launch in 2010, in line with the meteoric rise of the Australian fashion scene. Eluding overt seasonality to create garments appropriate for all climes, Song for the Mute has defeated the inherent constraints of the conflicting fashion calendar. Contemporary proportions, relaxed tailoring, offbeat detailing and monochromatic tones- elements central to the brand’s aesthetic- are combined with subtle streetwear touches and clever finishing for S/S15.
The quintessence of smart/casual, relaxed blazers and loose fitting trouser styles coexist in unexpected harmony; drop-crotch, wide-cut, cropped or sports-inspired, the trousers are arguably the most laudable constituents of the collection. Raw hem detailing and crumpled or ruched textures give a distressed, undone charm, to what is a deceivingly highly crafted and superbly designed set of garments. Song for the Mute S/S15 is epitomised by quiet contradiction.
