We love a bit of merch here at the Towers. Yes, “hands off the merchandise” is not an order we would ever obey. So when the music-duo that is Client Liaison unveiled their foray into fashion at MBFWA’s Resort 2019 shows we were intrigued, for Monte and Harvey are showman. They like to make a scene. A spectacle. But more accurately they love a statement. Client Liaison Deluxe Line (CLDL) collection titled “Champagne Affection” is fashion merch to the max. Menswear, Womenswear, Unisex pieces, Accessories and a CLDL x Pared Eyewear collaboration, it’s unapologetically ultra-Australiana nostalgia that’ll make you cringe with pleasure and cry out for a shandy. To quote the press release “CLDL is executive relaxation for leisure enthusiasts, where life is a party and you’re always invited.” And now to quote AV, “partaaay.”
