MSFW: Matcho Suba

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Melbourne designer Matcho Suba debunks that theory by way of – though he’s not old – the introduction of colour and more life to a collection that would have, had this been a year ago, been almost entirely black.

This Melbourne Spring Fashion Week season has seen the Melbourne designer extrapolate into the wonderful world of colour. Scarlet and blood reds through textured and quilted leather and PVC punctuated his collection that, though black will never be non-existent in the eyes of the designer, was charmingly brighter.

Heroing his collection this spring-summer season is dramatic elongated leather fringing on garments and accessories that spoke volumes about the designer. Matcho Suba‘s passion for the dramatic and tales of life that can be read into his pieces are personified in his embellishments and design features that perpetually flatter the feminine form and bring an air of Berlin-meets-Melbourne design that resonates so well.
