Exclusive Interview - GUESS

Feel like your missing out on fashion knowledge, or just want to know what the current must have's are for this season and next? We chat with Matthew Larkins,  Pitt Street Store Manager at the internationally renowned fashion label GUESS, to get the inside scoop.

1. What are five key pieces we need to incorporate into our wardrobe this season from GUESS?
I would definitely say that, this season, it’s all about statement pieces tying in together to create a great look. A great pair of comfortable and effortlessly chic pants like our Bazaar Texture Easy Pant can carry you through from day to night because of their bold pattern and laidback fit.
Every woman needs a great jumpsuit, as it is a timeless wardrobe staple. Our Beaded Peg Leg Jumpsuit creates a beautiful silhouette and is guaranteed to turn heads. The metallic embellishment around the neckline adds some sparkle and shine to make this jumpsuit essential!
There’s no doubt that rose gold is a key colour for this season, and our classic Brittney Skinny Ankle jeans have been reinvented and given a rose gold metallic finish which makes them perfect for a simple summer look. A great fitting pair of skinny jeans are the backbone of any woman’s wardrobe and combined with the metallic wash, the Brittney’s could not be more on trend.
No wardrobe is complete without the right accessories and the our Ronisha drawstring bag captures some of the hottest accessory trends there are right now! The fringe detailing gives this “bucket bag” a boho feel while the shape keeps this bag fun, eye catching and, most importantly, useful. This drawstring style provides the perfect alternative to a clutch for a night out!
While on the topic of accessories, keep the metallic trend going with a great pair of sandals. Our Rafi sandals are a great day to night flat, that can easily take you from the beach to the bar because of their metallic buckle and detailing. Regardless of whether you’re rocking a summer dress or a killer pair of jeans, a great sandal can always complete the look.

2. Is there a particular trend your seeing this summer?
I’d say that there a few trends that are really prominent this summer. The monochrome trend is great because it gives you room to mix in with other trends, particularly, like the colour blocking trend.  A monochrome look, featuring a basic white tee (like our Aztec burnout tank) with a killer pair of our Lulu skinny capris in white, is made fun and current with a pair of our Glenisa blood orange heels, creating a great summer look.

3. For under $100 what is the key piece or pieces that you recommend are must haves?
You absolutely cannot go past our Power Skinny Jeans for under $100. They are specifically designed to flatter and give a great bombshell shape making them a timeless wardrobe staple. Mix them with some of our Boyfriend tanks and you’ve got a great casual, put together look. Our basic seamless cami’s are also a great find and help create a great base for every outfit.

4. How do you see style in general evolving for next summer?
Style is all about inspiration and, right now, there’s a massive emphasis placed on street style. We’re all so much more conscious of what everyone around us is wearing and, if you’re working a great outfit, someone is bound to notice you and draw inspiration for their own wardrobe. I think summer is always about coolness and comfort, it’s all about being as chic as you can while remaining super comfortable and on trend.

5. If you could pick one accessory to add instant glamour, what would it be? e.g a clutch, jewellery etc
An amazing pair of killer heels!  You can make any outfit turn heads with an amazing pair of shoes, they can make you feel confident as a woman, can change the way you walk, stand and hold yourself. With this confidence comes instant sexiness and glamour…and that’s what Guess is all about.
