As commuters left the Bondi bubble for the day (if they managed to snag a bus), the fashion set descended on the Sydney paradise by the sea for MBFWA 2017. Crowding into where else but Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, journalists, photographers and the always salient 'influencers' soaked up those morning rays, as Icebergs' Maurice Terzini and partner Lucy Hinkfuss showed the Vertical Stripes collection of their unisex, streetwear label, Ten Pieces. This season, the label also partnered with The Woolmark Company to create ten more pieces in burnt orange merino jersey, balancing out the label's signature black and white.

A show of only 20 looks snaked through Icebergs to a Nicky Night Time score, showcasing what we've dubbed 'beamo' — no, not that cute little console from Adventure Time, but beach emo. Your favourite hoodie of yore has taken new shape losing its sleeves or growing them extra long. It's become a full-length dress, a type of slouchy robe you'd actually wear out of the house. And all was brought back to the surrounding surf vibes with zippered Ugg-style Sharpie Boots. But where does the emo come in? Well, you'd be missing the mark if you weren't pairing these pieces with a big sook, smudgy eyeliner and ratted out hair — or even better, a next-level mullet.

The Vertical Stripes collection also brought things full circle for the Icebergs Dining Room and Bar entrepreneur. Inspired by architecture and landscapes, the white silhouettes were marked with one thick black line reminiscent of the iconic pool below — we were wondering why the pool had been emptied, all the better to see those influential lane stripes.

Over black and white canapés, above the black and white emptied pool below, among the black and white (and burnt orange) streetwear, Fashion Week was fully immersed in Ten Pieces style — monochromatic, extremely comfortable and undeniably cool — though we're still not sure how we feel about those long shaved party mullets.
