Song for the Mute

Song for the Mute kicked off the end of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014 with a wave of smoke and hypnotic, bass pumping music. With a special appearance by US rapper Lupe Fiasco who flew in town especially for this event, Song for the Mute delivered a highly rememberable and amazing runway show.

Song for the Mute was the only label on the schedule to show a purely menswear collection, a breathe of fresh air after a womenswear dominated week. Models conjured out of the smoke with slick back hair daubed with a stripe of white paste down the side wearing a colour palette of greys, whites and blacks. Textured funnel-neck jackets in alpaca wool blends and a cocoon coat in pressed, waxed mohair with trousers rolled up to reveal a glimpse of skin were my favourite items to come down the runway. All in all it was a fantastic show and a perfect way to end the week.


  1. Love love love the hair paint. Shit like that always looks mega good in photos, but walking down the street? Unless you're gorg like these fellows and wearing amazing clothes like this.

  2. SftM's collection was pure gold - the perfect end to fashion week!
