Song For The Mute

With all the endless parades of feminine frocks at this years’ Australian Fashion Week, we were bowled over by the wonderfully named Song For The Mute. Melvin Tanaya and Lyna Ty’s second menswear collection subtly breaks the rules of traditional tailoring to create brave new silhouettes. Raw, fragile shirting and delicate, draped fisherman style pants are the antithesis of the usual male uniformity. I walked away from their showcase at the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney) with the dream to open my wardrobe and find the entire rack at my disposal.
