Comedian and architecture aficionado Tim Ross can add fashion designer to his resume after collaborating with his wife Michelle Glew-Ross on a limited-edition menswear range, Work It.
The collection features the Modernister suit comprising a relaxed jacket and matching pants produced by Michelle’s label, My General Store. The all-navy look is a wearable take on French workwear inspired by an old vintage jacket Tim wore to death.
Michelle has been releasing small and sustainable fashion collections from her Sydney studio since 2015, but this marks her first venture into menswear. ‘For a number of years people have been asking me to design something for men, so to work with Tim to create something is a logical start,’ she says.
The pair share an appreciation of vintage design across fashion and architecture, which is reflected in the Work It collaboration. The Modernister suit is handmade in Australia from Italian cotton, and has been designed to take you from ‘the boardroom to parent teacher interviews, and then potentially to the discos.’
Modelled by Tim himself in the wonderfully dated offices of Old Parliament House in Canberra, we’re feeling the retro vibes!
