With Australian Fashion Week in full swing in Sydney, the country's burgeoning design scene is in the spotlight. While you're coveting the new collections that walk down the runway — from asymmetrical, luxury sport looks by Ginger & Smart to romantic silhouettes and bondage-inspired jewelry by Toni Maticevski — don't forget that many of these designers run e-boutiques that ship directly to the U.S.
To make shopping current collections a little easier, we pulled together 21 of our favorite Australian brands with suggestions for what to shop now.
You've probably seen this label's iconic rompers and playsuits on e-tailers like Revolve, Moda Operandi, and Shopbop, but it's worth checking out the full collection for detailed dresses, pants, and skirts with a fun, retro vibe.
Over the past 13 years, Bec & Bridge has grown from a small local brand to a serious international label, now stocked in U.S. stores like Saks and Bloomingdale's. Head to the brand's site to shop the full collection of tailored separates, flirty rompers, and more.
The daughter of celebrated Australian designer Carla Zampatti, Bianca Spender has made a name for herself with refined tailoring and quietly original looks. Make sure you check out the tuxedo-cut jumpsuits, cascading silk tops and gowns, and "Art Deco" lace.
Check out Christopher Esber for simple, modern, elegant clothing with a masculine-meets-feminine vibe. You'll find pieces that work for the office and a night out (and free shipping for purchase over $300 is a perfect excuse to pull the trigger).
The third Australian designer ever to show at Paris Fashion Week, Ellery is one of the buzziest Aussie designers of the moment. Head here for architectural, voluminous statement looks (and one of the fashion set's must-have tops of the season).
Eclectic references and a current collaboration with Australian artist Jess Johnson make this e-shop a must-visit. It also stocks limited edition pieces made with archival fabrics, including a '90s-style T-shirt dress that feels very right now.
Sharp tailoring plus flowy maxi dresses might not sound like they make sense together, but you'll totally get it when looking through this four-year-old brand's e-boutique. The trench coats and leather jackets are a highlight.
