A return to the brand's DNA, a tribute to Australian beach culture and moments of pause, models floated onto the sand clothed in linen robes, hand-painted silks, drawstring trousers, and soft tailoring alongside the return of elevated men's recycled swim trunks and briefs. Marrying signature COMMAS motifs with renewed ideas and silhouettes.
“This is where I spend my morning swimming and witnessing the sunrise. I wanted others to experience the restorative energy the sunrise brings”. Explained Jarman in a press release.
Backstage, the energy was high but relaxed. A quiet buzz reverberating throughout the beachside apartment used for hair and makeup, which was executed by RUSSH alum Madison Voloshin and Isabella Schimid, with styling by Bridie Gilbert. Natural, dewy skin was prepared using Hunter Lab. With the seascape as the backdrop, a meditative state was the mood Du Jour.
Once on the sand, with models pacing along the shoreline to a subdued house soundtrack, it was a nod to nature and the ways in which the brand is intrinsically linked to Jarman’s environment and the world around him with its unwavering environmentally conscious disposition and dedication to sustainable practices.
“The real inspiration for this collection is the energy of the sun and the significance of new days,” shares Jarman.
An exciting new direction for the Spring Summer 2022 collection was the addition of Jarman’s first COMMAS women's pieces. A natural evolution for the brand with cues taken from the borrowing of menswear, the linen robes were reiterated in pared-back, feminine silhouettes. Linen blend kaftan-like dresses grazed the sand, offering a minimal yet feminine option for those looking to expand their COMMAS wardrobe.
A return to nature, a return to home, COMMAS sets us up for a proverbial reset for the week ahead.
