In partnership with JAG.
Last Thursday, April 7, we gathered our creative community for a late lunch by the sea, in celebration of JAG’s new AW22 collection and their move towards more sustainable practices. In the midst of one of the wettest days in Sydney this year – because, of course it was – friends of RUSSH were brought to Archie Bear cafe on the Mosman waterfront to enjoy a late lunch and special wine tasting from Not Wasted.
Tables were lined with bespoke florals by Fleurette, where soft, muted foliage mirrored the JAG AW22 collection, while Groundswell co-founder, Arielle Gamble gave an inspiring talk on the future of sustainability. Gamble's words inspired a table-wide discussion on the importance of working together to create a safer future for our planet. The sentiment is mirrored by JAG, who are embarking on a continuous drive to achieve 95% low impact materials by 2025; for clothing that is kinder on the environment and our bodies.
Guests were dressed in JAG's latest menswear and womenswear ranges. The menswear proudly utilises organic cotton, tercel and linen blends for quality fabrications that are built to last, while womenswear range focuses heavily on bast fabrics such linen jersey and ramie for versatile staples that you can take anywhere. Tucked away in a seafront nook, Kitty Callaghan snapped images of our guests, who included Emily Gurr, Yemi Suliemon, Ljubo Milicevic, Jaimee Curdie, Charlotte Mullins, Christelle Scifo, Nitesh Pillai, Mikka Byarugaba, Renae Sydney, and more.
To the sweet beats of a playlist by our tone-setting music editor, Alys Hale, friends of RUSSH grazed on their lunch while engaging in ample conversation around fashion, sustainability, and catch-ups. As the evening wound down, guests were given a Fleurette posy, recycled from the table scapes, to take home, as everyone piled back into the water taxi as the rain poured to be safely ferried home.
