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.
