This week was phenomenal. Veering closer to our print deadlines it was all about late nights at the RUSSH office and perhaps a few (if not a couple) of exhausted breakdowns in the fashion cupboard. However, the week went on and here, we wrap up another of our five favourite fashion moments from this week from all of us at RUSSH.
Chanel x The Australian Ballet
Monday night marked a magical night for the editors at RUSSH as we wrapped up one of the busiest days, rushed ourselves home and got ourselves ready for an intimate night with The Australian Ballet in partnership with Chanel.
With Chanel's ongoing commitment to supporting the arts, a very special evening was hosted at the Sydney Opera House, a special preview of The Australian Ballet's new production, Coutnerpointe directed by artistic director David Hallberg.
Emotive, breathtaking and moving, Counterpointe was a feast for the eye and the senses. The show will take stage at the Sydney Opera House til May 15th, and we promise you, it will be a night to remember.

The exclusive capsule in both men and womens will become available on Net-A-Porter and MR PORTER online May 3rd, along with six specially selected Dries Van Noten stores.
