For the ZSADAR Spring/Summer 2011-2012 collection, entitled ‘The Creature in the Mirror’, Shane Newton was influenced by Japanese design, evident in the themes of imperfect beauty and incompletion – both are consistent throughout the collection.  Additional inspirations come from the ideas of anarchy, experimentation, subversion and the macabre, resulting in a collection with a focus on drapery, tailoring and form. This style reflects Newton’s artistic background. A collection with a distinct avant garde feel, the all black offering features exposed seams, zip and distressed detailing in the all Australian fabrics, including woven wool, linen, bamboo and silk.

Stand out pieces of the collection include a collarless double panel button-up shirt, with scoop neck in soft linen; a loose fit side-zip hooded cardigan, with a cowl neck and exquisite drapery; and a wet-look linen formal short.

The pieces that make up the collection are distinctly androgynous, being neither masculine nor feminine; so although the collection is hailed as menswear, it is sure to be coveted by many a woman over Summer 2012.
