Westfield Label We Love: Country Road
Nothing says sophisticated, classic and professional like one of the mainstays of Australian fashion – Country Road. Beginning back in the 1970s and specialising in women’s shirts, this iconic brand has come a long way in almost 40 years and now caters for men, women, children and the home.
Winter is when this label comes into its own with bulky knits and luxe layering. Launched this month, Country Road’s autumn/winter collection utilises an earthy colour palette of burgundy, charcoal, olive and off-white modeled by classic beauty, Finnish model Suvi Koponen.
The latest collection is full of chunky knits, relaxed winter staples, classic tones and texture detailing. Exactly what everyone needs to tackle a long, cold winter.
According to Country Road spokeswoman, “Knitwear is key to Country Road every Autumn/Winter and 2012 is no exception, offering different yarns, stitching techniques and splicing with a modern take on old favourites in styles including the open stitch poncho, cape sleeve cardigan, loop knit vest and the classic roll neck”.
The label’s genius is in its simplicity. Country Road has been built on a foundation of well-designed and cut basics that are the backbone of every great outfit. Combining such pieces with current styles and trends is not an easy feat but Country Road has continued to deliver over the 4 decades that they have served fashion-conscious Australians.
