Just putting it out there, I know next to nothing about menswear apart from the fact that one brand is Ermenegildo Zegna (and that's only because any Asian worth their weight in LV should know this crucial player in brand-whoring). But that's not to say I can't enjoy it & marvel at the effort the students put in to send the following ten very intriguing looks down the runway.

I blame my general disinterest in men's fashion on the pervasive Perth-laziness when it comes to men getting dressed. Whilst I do love a well-groomed XY, I somehow don't think my male peers would froth at the mention of textile layers and textures like those sent down the runway, which saddens me. Alright, alright - perhaps the Transylvanian capes and Hulk-shoulders are a bit too much too soon for a city just coming to realise how cool it actually is, but a little splash of layering here and there wouldn't kill a man would it?
Naomi Randall, love your work.
