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.

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.

One Thought on “Caulfield Whitehouse Institute of Design Award 2012

  1. I love the first outfit.
    I think a a stylish wide brimmed hat looks fabulous, not to mention how beautiful the rest of the outfit is.

    After seeing photos in the paper, it’s a relief to see these in which the women and men look so stylish. They have not chosen their racewear outfit based on some of the latest trends that don’t seem right for a day at the races.
