Christian Kimber SS24 Redefines Modern Menswear

The curtain may have closed on Afterpay Australian Fashion Week for 2023, but some collections are still holding real estate in our brains. From avant-garde cuts to futuristic interpretations of modern masculinity, the festival was a feast for all senses, but in our eyes, craftsmanship firmly trumped shock value. You need only look at Christian Kimber’s Spring/Summer 2024 ready-to-wear men’s collection to realise why.

Debuting at the Carriageworks event, the English-born, independent designer’s new collection served up a decadent treat of traditional tailoring and more. The Melbourne-based Kimber presented 35 looks across the runway, a mix of premium casual attire and formal wear, both elevated by luxurious fabrics, sophisticated prints and decadent tones.

Polos and shirts are made perfectly with Italian cotton – ideal for warm Australian days. For the cooler months, white corduroy suit jackets, cashmere, rich wool outwear, and cozy scarfs. The new formal line saw harmonious three-piece suits, tweed tuxedo jackets and refined, classic trousers.

“I am thrilled to partner with Afterpay Australian Fashion Week to present my spring summer 2024 collection and reveal a new contemporary take on masculine occasion wear,” Kimber said.

Renowned for his reverence towards culture, art, cinema, music, and fashion, Kimber has managed to blur the lines between ready-to-wear and bespoke, fusing different influences into one. According to the designer, each piece is thoughtfully crafted in Melbourne and ethically produced by skilled artisans spanning Europe and Australia.

For the runway, the independent designer partnered with multi-disciplinary artist, Amber Moxey (make-up artist), and New York-based Mr Smith Creative Director, Freda Rossidis (hairstylist) to convey what is the Christian Kimber man – fresh-faced and effortlessly masculine. In our opinion, job well done.
