Camilla and Marc St Clair Knit Dress, $800 SHOP NOW
Much like the new and altered world that we are all now a part of, revered Australian label Camilla and Marc have used their Spring/Summer 2022 collection, Voyage, to herald a fresh beginning for the label.
“Voyage is a moment of expansion, inspired by new creative horizons,” says Creative Director, Camilla Freeman-Topper. “Inspiration was drawn from a feeling of new beginnings, and the idea that everything in life, evolves. The collection took on a rhythm of its own, a collective heartbeat, designed to embrace all women equally. The possibilities, limitless.”
The new collection sees an air of “sexiness” layered into the tailored masculinity that we have come to know C+M for. Sheer, textured knits and cut-outs aplenty sit against the renowned trenches, shirting and trousers, while exposed waistbands and new season prints offer up some real newness amongst the beloved staples.

In what feels like a Thom Browne spin on the classic black mini, Camilla and Marc have created a deconstructed, exposed logo drop waist for the ages. With pockets and pintucks, it’s the skirt version of a male tuxedo and we love it. Work, afterwork drinks, weekends in a speakeasy… if you want to know what’s it, it’s this.

It’s unique cut – read: the twist detailing at the collarbone – is destined for the evening, and sexes up this collection ten-fold.
