n a world of fast fashion R.M. Williams

is bucking the trend and maintaining the

craftsmanship that has been the hallmark of the

brand since 1932. For example, plaited leather belts are

still made by hand with more than 1000 plaits, a skill

that has been handed down from bushmen to the team

that continues to make them today and each one takes

several hours to complete. The iconic elastic-side boot

now worn by royals (Kate and Wills), presidents (Bill

Clinton), prime ministers (Howard, Rudd and Abbott)

and stars from songstress Florence Welch to new R.M.

Williams shareholder Hugh Jackman, is still made from

a single piece of leather to maintain its durability and

seamless style. Products that were created to endure a

rigorous life in the Australian outback have become a

statement of effortless style, teamed with dresses and

skirts as easily as jeans for a weekend wardrobe ready

for any adventure. R.M. Williams launches a new

season collection on 11 July.

Fashion from R.M. Williams, available at Shop 332,
