Alpha60 has been a mainstay in the Australian fashion industry since 2005 where it made a name for itself as the epitome of Melbourne style. We are used to a lot of monochromatic looks from the brother and sister duo, but this season has really made an impact colour wise.

Geometric shapes make up a lot of the collection, with fabric paneled in different block colours. The silhouettes are just what we’re after for summer – chic cropped tops paired with clean simple skirts and flats. Sheer sections allow for just the right amount of skin to be shown and work well placed on the décolletage area.

Most of the shapes are loose for the summer heat, but there is also a nod to strict tailoring techniques in a few pairs of pants and select dresses. Our favourite look is a black and white two-tone pinafore style dress. It’s just loose enough at the waist to be comfortable and the colouring makes it applicable for a range of occasions. Perfection!

In an interesting move, Alpha60 has also introduced some great accessories this season – shoes!! Available in flat and heel version, the styles are classic and will appeal to a wide variety of customers. As many will know, it’s hard to find a good shoe in this town, so we are truly happy for this discovery! The sunglasses are beyond great too.

Alpha60 has also just re-launched its web store, making shopping this beautiful collection easier. Also, thanks to designers Georgie and Alex, we have a great pair of Poppy flat sandals to give away. All you have to do is log into Facebook and comment below with what you would wear with the sandals, and where!

Good luck!
