Another beautiful Friday to land the end of yet another working week and so here at RUSSH we recap 6 of our favourite fashion moments because of course, we never want to cheat you of the happenings from Easter week.
JETS Summer Soirée Launches Elysian

We sailed through the most beautiful afternoon with JETS last week, hosted on a majestic yacht with bottomless glasses of Veuve Cliquot for the JETS Summer Soirée. The finest members of Sydney's inner fashion circles gathered as we feasted on exquisite hor d'oeuvres while jetting past the Sydney Opera House. In celebration of JETS new collection, Elysian, the soirée paraded only the finest in linen, printed silks and Italian lycra, draped in lustful summer sarongs.
A blissful sun kissed event, JETS Elysian was sure to make the must have list for every RUSSH editor this week.
Dion Lee FW 21 Collection

Thanks to Bridgerton, Corsets have been a bit of a favourite of ours this year and Dion Lee's new Denim Bustier definitely takes the lead. Channelling the fierce leather and corsetry themes from equestrian influences, Dion Lee's Fall Winter 21 collection is full of statement looks with impact. Personal favourites include the iconic cross knit bralette - a piece that mingles both cosy and boldness in one, and a waify white dress grounded in leather strappings that nods to bridling.
Louis Vuitton Summer Capsule at Pacific Fair

A RUSSH favourite, Louis Vuitton announced the launch of their Summer Capsule pop-up at Pacific Fair in the bustling hub of the Gold Coast this week, offering us a glimpse into a French summer fantasy. In true European fashion, Louis Vuitton's summer pop up celebrated with sorbet and cocktails with a space that was reverent of the glimmering sea and the beautiful gradient of colours that graces us on the perfect summer sunset.
Most importantly, worthy of noting for all the summer chasers out there - the French Maison honours a tribute to our very own Australian sands with the launch of the limited edition "Byron Bay" OnTheGo Tote that will only be available exclusively at the summer pop-up location.
Dior Savoir-Faire Dior Book Tote

Dior graced us another intimate look behind the doors of their Atelier with a new Savoir-Faire and look into the making of its essential Dior Book Tote in Dior Palms motif. We delve into the visions of creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and the exceptional craftsmanship and artisanal skills that heralds the Maison of Dior. Sketch, colour, stitch, embroider - the Savoir-Faire bares all. Hand stitch and hammer, always a pleasure to be invited inside the doors of Dior and catch a private glimpse into the making of magic.
Lucy Folk Dinner

We have a new neighbour in our loved-up little Paddington precinct with Lucy Folk set to open her second Sydney store on William Street within the next month.
On the eve of Easter, Folk hosted an evening that had more pre-pandemic energy than we’ve felt in a long-time. With a curated dining experience by Arlo Communal followed by dancing inspired by Carla Uriatre’s mega-mix and Folk’s brand mascot (and boyfriend) Joffrey Cauchy, and let’s be honest, some encouragement from Cantina OK, new blank-canvas space next to long-time friend Tamsin Johnson was christened by glowing Mum’s to be Isabella Manfredi and Georgia Fowler and brand friends Gabrielle Penfold, Anna Feller and Christelle Scifo and Yan Yan Chan.
Witchery White Shirt Campaign

Each year we eagerly await Witchery's White Shirt campaign to see how they reinvigorate the timeless piece once more. For the time, in 13 years of running The White Shirt Campaign, Witchery has collaborated with a designer on the 2021 Witchery White Shirt style. Melbourne-based Toni Matičevski, one of Australia's most beloved and well-respected creatives is known for his signature tailoring and complex drapery. Together Witchery and Matičevski will produce a key collection with aim of raising funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Over the past decade Witchery has already raised over $13.8 million dollars for the OCRF in support of early detection research. To support this incredibly important cause, head to the Witchery website to shop online or head in store from the 12th of April.
