Melbourne fashion that bridges the gap between formal and casual from designer Henry Ng
Orri Henrisson is a Melbourne-based menswear label, founded in 2008 by designer Henry Ng, who set about redefining modern menswear after becoming disillusioned with the city’s grim aesthetic of black-on-black. As one of the most promising up-and-coming Australian menswear labels, Orri Henrisson collections of wearable separates are known for building the bridge between formal and casual wear.
With seasonal ranges inspired by music and photography, Orri Henrisson designer Henry says his designs are a result of how he will envision a garment will look on a certain musician or on a character within a photograph. The brand continues with their signature aesthetic with the Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, entitled ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Featuring sleek and sharp tailoring, t-shirts with innovative twists such as zip details and tartan paneling, and perforated leather jackets, the collection is sure to win the brand a host of new high-profile stockists, further improving the success of this promising Australian fashion label.
To accompany the collection, Orri Henrisson have created another innovative and exciting campaign. Working with talented photographer Manouri Peiris for the second season, the unique ‘jigsaw puzzle’ tableau perfectly encapsulates the philosophy of Henry’s design and visions. The campaign also features model, Samuel Walter, for the second season, who reflects the youthful spirit, clean lines and refined style of Orri Henrisson’s ethos. They layering/flying garment styling and fun jigsaw puzzle effect, of the lookbook create the feeling that fashion is not something to be taken too seriously, while still accentuating Orri Henrisson’s distinctive aesthetic.
