Alex Perry has joined the likes of local labels Dion Lee, Bassike and Karen Walker by adding a trans-seasonal drop to his production schedule. The Cruise 2014 line-up carries all of the things we loved about his fashion week vision (sleek, modern, floor-skimming gowns, alluring lace and clever colour-blocking) but with a more playful vibe. Micro floral prints add a youthful twist to tailored separates, acid bright-spliced cocktail dresses provide some juicy day-wear alternatives and lace-topped prom frocks up the flirt-factor. It's not quite casual, but it's getting surprisingly close from the red carpet king. Never fear; there are still some stellar examples of Perry's after-dark expertise with glamorous gowns cut in slick shapes. Before the line-up drops in stores in November, we suggest you zoom in on every detail.
