Winter is coming which means some awesome new gear is about to drop from Australian brands to keep us warm and looking stylish this season. One of them is Sydney-based label Annex whose A/W ’16 collection is a slick mix of classic styles with a modern twist; think rugged leather jackets, new interpretations of the bomber and loose cut knits.
This season Annex are also releasing their first footwear collection with a series of winter boots, made entirely in Australia. With the factory being in Sydney it’s allowed the guys behind the brand to oversee the whole process and make sure the shoes meet their standards. Annex have also created their own Australian made denim range. It’ll have three fits featuring a modern, ripped look with every piece being handmade using ‘turkish’ denim. To round out their range, Annex will also have a selection of organic basics which will have four styles of basic t-shirts in different fits.
Annex want to lead the charge of new Australian brands to take the world by storm. By manufacturing locally they can ensure that their products are at the highest quality, and that Sydney can be seen as a true fashion city. They have a great approach to contemporary menswear with the new season collection especially being pretty edgy and moody whilst still premium and with a local kick. It’s a nice contrast to the rest of their range which takes a bit of a cleaner approach, so they’ll have all your bases covered.
You’ll find Annex’s flagship store at Bondi Beach, and they’re definitely a local brand you’ll want to keep your eye on.
