Caulfield Whitehouse Institute of Design Award 2012

Caulfield’s Design Award is a chance for designers to showcase their ultimate racewear outfit. Whether¬†the looks they produce are a modern interpretation of trackside-appropriate attire or a classic one. Congratulations to Ted Baker who was judged the winner on Thousand Guineas Day and also to Nicholas my personal favourite (it was a close one!) who was voted the People’s Choice. I though I’d share a selection of my favourite designer racewear looks from this year below.

Bul - Caulfield Design Award 2012

I love how relaxed this look is; you don’t have to go all fussy to have great style at the races. This outfit by Bul would also be lovely to wear to the polo.

Jack London - Caulfield Design Award 2012

Jack London does something a little edgy for guys. A printed shirt is a great option to mix things up – the pattern doesn’t have to be as wild as animal print.

Joe Black - Caulfield Design Award 2012

Another boundary-pusher for most not-so-fashion-focussed gents by Joe Black the Tailor. Swap the pink for red or blue or mustard if you dare.

Kahlo - Caulfield Design Award 2012

This modern look by Kahlo would have to be my second favourite (sadly it looks a wee bit too big for this particular model so something is lost in translation). Its two-toned leather and race-y lines nod to the sport of the season.

Nicholas -  Caulfield Design Award 2012

I thought Nicholas trod that fine line between sexy and demure with this look.

O'Hara - Caulfield Design Award 2012

What a pretty and unusual hat! O’Hara has produced a really wearable racing look.

Ted Baker - Caulfield Design Award 2012

The winner – Ted Baker – with a Richard Nylon hat. I get it; it’s pretty and frilly and girly with a little edginess at the gloves and pops of floral.

Caulfield Design Award 2012

A lace visor-style fascinator is now on my lust list.

…And a bonus picture of the carnival ‘Faces’ Hetty Kate and Evan Spargo simply because they are just so darn easy on the eye.
