Up There Stays Above the Trends from Down Under

View all 15 Photos

Fashion is one of the most difficult fields to stay competitive in, as designers have to constantly keep on top of the latest fads without succumbing to them. For Australian brand Up There, the key to this tightrope walk is keep their eyes looking ahead, with their new Fall/Winter 2015 Premier collection bound to set trends instead of trying to catch up to them. Working in collaboration with Boston-based Victory Sportswear, the collection combines the aesthetics of athletic and everyday menswear (a style known colloquially as athleisure) through a series of jackets, shirts, hoods, chinos, shorts and running shoes. And while this combination may not be new, the firm makes it their own through the use of Japanese crafted silhouettes made out of the finest Japanese fabrics. This influences the cut of the collection’s typologies in an interesting way, refreshing it with a modern appeal that’s very fashion forward. This is important, as the clothing is tailor-made to fit the needs of the modern man, blurring the old world divisions between “professional” clothing and leisurewear. Added to this the sports edge and it paints a picture of an active man, one who doesn’t take himself too seriously but who’s ready to take on the world. The confidence that radiates from these articles is a soft-spoken kind; just as the high quality fabrics hide all the little details that make the pieces so sharp. Up There’s stores may be based in Melbourne, but their products are a trend ready for every man.
