Iconic Australian menswear designers Maurice Terzini and Gareth Moody debuted their surf-punk inspired label NONPLUS at Australian Afterpay Fashion Week, previewed at iconic Bondi institution Icebergs Restaurant & Bar.
The runway began with models flaunting sharp suiting, strong silhouettes and discreet details weaving their way through Bondi Icebergs backdropped by iconic coastal views. The looks encapsulated Moody & Terzini’s perfected knack for dressed down elegance. Premium Italian Wool and hand-cut and sewn leather pieces sourced from Indonesia showcased the new brand’s versatile offering.
Sydney’s creatives and fashion industry players looked on as Australia’s most well-known suburb and iconic view transformed into a guerrilla-style runway show of epic proportions.
“The search for the perfect everyday uniform is something that challenges me... this collaboration, years in the making, has brought me one step closer."
“The collection is based on classic men’s styles and silhouettes bringing both modern lines and classic shapes into focus with a nod to both of our brands contemporary tailoring and everyday staples.”Co-Founder Gareth Moody adds.
Staying true to the designers heritage in menswear, the brand’s androgynous shapes blur the line between traditional gendered style for a unisex modern capsule wardrobe.
NONPLUS is a retrospective take on the most signature and defining styles from Moody’s Tsubi, Chronicles of Never, Black Noise White Rain and Non-Type, and Terzini’s Ten Pieces and 10+ (as well as the plethora of internationally recognized and cutting edge hospitality venues) – offering a fusion of both designers signature surf-punk style into a curated capsule collection of modern classics.
"We have touched on hero pieces from collections + labels from past, present and future; Tsubi (denim) Chronicles of Never (tailoring) Non-Type (leather) 10 Pieces (tees + shirting ) Black Noise White Rain (basics) ... Maurice and I have both worked together for years on various projects combining food and fashion ... it’s a privilege to be collaborating once again on this next creative Avenue in this new normal world and current times we are living in.”Moody explains.
Designed locally, the collection has been designed and produced between Australia and Bali, with premium Italian wool, Indonesian leather and a glimpse of denim thrown in.
Prices range from $80 AUD to $5,000 AUD and the pieces will be available via appointment from Showroom-X.
