Beyond the Bale : June 2017
Ten Pieces is a unisex brand co-designed by Maurice Terzini -- well known as the restaurateur behind the iconic Icebergs Dining Room and Bar at Bondi Beach -- and his partner, fashion designer Lucy Hinckfuss. As its name suggests, Ten Pieces produces collections in groups of ten. This year, collaborating with AWI for the latest ten items in their lifestyle clothing line, the design duo has created a Merino wool jersey collection with knitted Cashwool® pieces. Through working with The Woolmark Company, Ten Pieces connected with one of the world's most important spinners, Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia, which is one of the single largest buyers of fine and superfine Australian Merino wool. This partnership is another example that highlights the close connection between the Australian wool industry and top Italian manufacturers. After visiting the Zegna Baruffa factory in Biella, Italy, the design duo was inspired to introduce Zegna Baruffa yarn into some knitted additions to the Ten Pieces range, elevating the collection and evolving their brand. When asked what the designers loved most about working with wool, Hinckfuss said: "The aspect of sustainability and its technical ability". Ten Pieces has delivered a collection which serves up modern comforts in a uniquely simple, sophisticated and accessible way. References to the Sharpies subculture from the 1960s and 1970s see the collection having a raw and quintessentially Australian edge, while their sporty punk In a first for Australia, seven emerging Australian designers will be on show together this month in Florence, Italy, at a special presentation dubbed 'Guest Nation Australia' during the world's most important trade show for menswear, Pitti Immagine Uomo. Each of the Australian designers are required to present their Spring/Summer collections, highlighting the adaptability of Australian Merino wool and its suitability for all climates. The project is a special project by Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery in collaboration with AWI's subsidiary, The Woolmark Company, with the designers selected with the Australian Fashion Chamber. "AWI provided each of the designers with introductions to the Merino wool supply chain", explained AWI CEO Stuart McCullough. "This is a wonderful opportunity for the designers, and spotlights the Merino wool fibre within one of the most important forums for men's fashion in the world." It is the first time that a project of this scale has been presented internationally. AUSTRALIA SHOWCASE AS PITTI UOMO'S GUEST NATION muse has a refined overall look, suggested through detailed finishes. Modern day monochrome twin-sets have been designed to offer the wearer a simple and elegant choice that not only reflects the brand's minimalist aesthetic but also the fibre's innate versatility. "AWI is committed to supporting home-grown talent and takes pride in being able to work with these designers to help them discover the versatility of wool and the wool supply chain," said AWI CEO Stuart McCullough. The collection will be also showcased at Pitti Uomo this month (see below), and will be available to buy at www.tenpieces.com.au and various international retail stores.
