Founded by 25-year-old Sydney local Louie Collins, apparel label Five by Flynn kicked off its legacy with five camp collar shirts featuring a laid-back cut and retro vibe. What began with those iconic staples has since evolved into a multi-product unisex fashion brand, which rolls out stunning seasonal classics whilst staying loyal to its signature roots. You’ll find The Camp Collar Style Shirt in all three of its new collections, each one based around the experiences of a thrill-seeking character named Flynn. To gaze upon the brand’s output is to transport yourself to a remote vacation spot, where you and your best mates soak in the sun whilst engaging in epic adventures. This is resort wear done oh so right.
For a perfect idea of what Five by Flynn is all about, look no further than their new SS23 collection. Dubbed ‘A Summer in Mallorca,’ it captures the road less travelled and evokes the essence of summertime by way of postcard-inspired tees, bright colours, staple pants, and other breezy silhouettes. The seasonal energy is palpable and so too is a relaxed sense of spectacular style, all of it inspired by the Spanish island for which it’s named. This is also the brand’s first release in partnership with new manufacturers, resulting in notable improvements to quality and material alike.
To promote their new collection, Five by Flynn headed out to Mallorca for a sun-soaked photoshoot. Every image captures the essence of the island and the apparel alike, trailing two gorgeous models as they migrate from the streets to the beach and back, their outfits putting an ultramodern and geographically-inspired twist on classic resort wear. The signature camp collar shirt is the hero piece and it features the eye-catching colours seen around the island, whilst the rest of the collection follows suit.
Thankfully, you don’t have to travel all the way to Mallorca to pick up the relaxed retro vibes that this incredible brand is throwing down (though let’s be honest, a trip to Mallorca sounds pretty awesome). Founder Louie Collins felt that the experience of visiting physical stores and interacting with the products was vital in the post-Covid era and so he set up a brick-and-mortar in the heart of Sydney. Drop in and check out their collections for yourself, including their unmistakable camp collar-style shirts. Prepare for truly inspired seasonal wear that will inspire you in turn. Here’s to Flynn and his stylish pursuit of adventure.
