Eighties engagement


Client Liaison cures your style daddy issues


Words: Damien Woolnough

8th June 2018

The first fully-fledged fashion offering from Australian indie pop outfit Client Liaison could be stolen from your dad's side of the wardrobe.

The Champagne Affection collection made its debut at Merecedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia last month and goes on sale at pop-up stores in Melbourne and Sydney on June 14.

Created by Harvey Miller and Monte Morgan, who found chart success with Off White Limousine and A Foreign Affair featuring tiny Tina Arena, the collection is packed with rugby tops, budgie smugglers and jumpsuits that could have been lifted straight from the pages of GQ in the '80s.

Miller and Morgan have mixed the feeling of Stephen Bennett's Country Road with the palette of a Ken Done painting and the aesthetic of an off-duty Iron Man.

"The collection titled Champagne Affection is inspired by archive resort footage of Christopher and Pixie Skase, by Rennie Ellis, long late lunches and classic Australian flora and fauna," a statement form Client Liaison reads.

"CLDL is executive relaxation for leisure enthusiasts, where life is a party and you’re always invited."

If you’re keen to get onto the eighties revival but find the smell of vintage clothing funkier than Grandmaster Flash, head to the pop-up stores.
