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.’

 


Key pieces?


‘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.’

 


Styling tip?


‘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.’
