How Did Tome’s #SeeBuyWear Collection Fare?

Hey, that rhymed!
|

One of the fun things about going backstage before a show – aside from being able to view the collection beforehand and dropping teasers to fellow show-goers – is having the time to figure out the inspiration behind it as you get up close and personal with the pieces. Some are obvious, others less so. Tome‘s recent Resort 2017 at Fashion Week Australia fell somewhere in the middle. The head wraps referenced Africa, that was clear enough, but to whom specifically? Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin, the duo behind the New York-based label, are continually inspired by artists, so there had to be a someone. As the models continued to be fussed over by make-up artists and dressers, I quickly scoured the designer directory that was handed to attendees before the week started and found my answer – singer and activist Nina Simone and the black-and-white works of the late Malian photographer Malick Sidibe. Is the latter behind the many black-and-white looks?

Amongst the flowing dresses and wide-legged trousers were many delectably covetable pieces: tailored shirts with open backs and appendages that wrapped around the body, modified trench coats that looked so good with aforementioned shirts, deconstructed denim and patchwork leather. The best part? Tome’s into the “see now, buy now” thing, which means that you can see-and-buy the bejesus out of the collection. Knock yourself out, kids.
