Dion Lee is one of my favourite designers and I’ve worn pieces from his label more times than I can count. His aesthetic is always clean, sophisticated and with a fashion forward spin that makes his designs instantly unique. So whenever he launches anything new, I always think it’s worth sitting up and taking notice. You can bet it’s guaranteed to be on point, especially when it’s a collaboration with one of Australia’s most popular accessories brands, The Daily Edited.
Last year Dion launched his first men’s line and says he was interested in building out the brand to include accessories. “Working with The Daily Edited seemed like an opportunity to really create accessories that felt like they were helping me tell the story of the men’s character,” says Dion. Of the collection, The Daily Edited’s co- founder Alyce Tran says, “I’ve always loved his line and we have collaborated with other designers before so when the opportunity to work with Dion came up we wanted to take the collaboration in a different direction to our previous collaborations with a menswear capsule.”
The range includes three main designs – a messenger bag, a tote bag and wash bag in a chic colour palette of black, navy and khaki. “With men’s wear it’s much more intuitive and personal and it’s more about what I would wear and what I’m attracted to,” says Dion. “The palette was really about things that I would put together and colours that I would work back into my own wardrobe.”
Whilst the range is technically a men’s line the designs are so minimalist that I think it could work equally as well in a woman’s wardrobe. So if you’re looking to spoil the man in your life or are just in the market for a stylish new bag, this is one collab definitely worth checking out.
