Strutting down Toorak Road, Melbourne, in a pair of navy Charles and Keith mules and breezy culottes, twenty-four year old Joselle Singson looked completely unaffected by the soaring February heat.
Naturally, one of our photographers shambled after the polka-dot clad vision and asked to take her photograph for our street style gallery. Confused albeit flattered, Joselle stopped for a quick snap before continuing on her way to her boyfriend’s birthday dinner in town.
At the month’s close, and much to her surprise, Joselle, of Japanese-Filipino descent, was informed that her look had racked up the highest number of votes from our followers and she was subsequently selected to model a range of garments from New York based women’s wear label Tome.
As it turns out, the pairing was a match made in style heaven.
“I am enamoured with their silhouettes and colour palette! I feel like these are the kinds of clothes the ideal me would be wearing to both my fancy CBD office and then straight out for cocktails with just a change of lipstick at most,” gushed Joselle about Tome’s current collection.
With their emphasis on form and function, it’s no surprise that Tome’s pieces resonate with a woman on the go, never sacrificing practicality in the pursuit of clear-cut style – essential dressing for the ‘every woman’.
Australian-born Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin are the duo behind the label, receiving plaudits for their strides towards sustainability and collections which truly embrace the needs of the busy modern woman. With celebrity fans including Sarah Jessica Parker, Amal Clooney and Tilda Swinton, Tome has secured a place in the New York style scene and beyond and we were thrilled to feature their designs for the first time in our monthly fashion shoot.
Photographed in Chapel Street South Yarra by Adelaide photographer Dimitra Koriozos and styled by Melbourne-based Freya Myles, Joselle looked every bit the Tome woman.
