Sydney Street Style: Neon Skirts and Feminist Jackets

By

Today was the last day of Sydney Fashion Week, and while it may not be the new London, there’s no denying that street stylers made a colorful and eccentric showing. Australian runways were a sea of digital prints — from Haryono Setiadi’s ocean-themed patterns and Karla Spetic’s pearl-themed crotch imagery — and styles on the sidewalks were correspondingly eye-catching. Showgoers sported now-requisite kooky clutches (blogger Nicole Warne carried a watermelon-shaped one), but also, some trends we didn’t see in New York or Europe: namely, bold feminist slogans on T-shirts and jackets, and garments in every shade of neon imaginable. Australian designer Poppy Lissiman showed off an impressive collection of brightly colored skirts, from metallic-green leather to highlighter-yellow lace, while Elle editor Danielle Prescod wore an Azede Jean-Pierre jacket covered in appliqué ants (previously seen on Solange).
