FARFETCH.COM — 5 BREAKTHROUGH LABELS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Designer Lukas Vincent grew up in a surf-obsessed town in Melbourne, an adolescence that has paid dividends in helping him create his signature ‘suburban surf dandy’ aesthetic – a sort of darkly chic take on weekend wear, this season resplendent with Oriental detailing.
Hi Lukas, sum up Ex Infinitas in 3 words…
‘Sartorial, Surf, Bogan.’
Inspiration for SS17?
‘The elusive lifestyle of the surfer – what we might discover about these boys in-between waves.’
Your ultimate muse?
‘Salvador Dali – an artist by the sea.’
If your collection were a song…
‘Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix.’
‘The mock-neck top – a seventies-inspired, velour-like knit tee crafted from a densely fluffy viscose-nylon Italian yarn [and] custom denim short, deconstructed and reworked to feature odd front and back panels.’
‘The pieces are created to blend seamlessly into the existing wardrobe, with everyday wearability in mind. I love styling the high [with the] low – beaten-up denim with a sharp tailored blazer or plush knit, for a nonchalant sense of style and luxury.’
