What To Wear This Weekend

 

The Wearable Guide to the Weekend

Forget the last minute bookings, little-to-no packing time and Friday afternoon rush - this time, no plans are the perfect plans. We’ve curated the SABA-approved list to the best local happenings, as well as the items to see you through in effortless style. Even if you don’t plan on moving too far from the comfort of the couch, we've got you covered, literally. It’s your weekend, SABA-styled.

 

 

 

A WEEKEND AT HOME

Step one. Knitwear. Yes it’s autumn, and it’s finally time you take the cooler weather in your sartorial stride with the super soft knits that feel something like a comforting hug (except well, more stylish… and lasts all day).

Our Cathy Stripe Knit is as comfortable as morning coffee with an old friend. Every wardrobe needs a striped knit as part of the luxe weekend wardrobe – and this knit is made in extra fine Merino wool cotton blend with a wide navy and ivory stripe, with an on-trend wide funnel neckline. Simply pair with your favourite jeans – or ours, the signature Rae Skinny jean in a mid-indigo hue and a premium white cotton tee. Feeling a draught? Make it a thing of the past with any of our woolen scarves; our pick for the weekend is the Maree Scarf.

When the Game of Thrones marathon is getting a little stale, making your way through this reading list (powells.com/25-books-to-read-before-you-die) is the ideal way to re-inspire the creative mind. Perhaps steer clear of The Handmaid’s Tale if you’re looking for light reading, and if you’re in it for the long haul we recommend anything by Haruki Murakami, complete with his signature lyrical prose and haunting surrealism. Racking up any titles from the literary cannon (penguinclassics.com.au/black) is always a good idea.

Add your favourite brew, minus your iPhone and welcome relaxation.

A WEEKEND TRIP TO A GALLERY

If you’re getting cabin fever (aka FOMO), we’ve rounded up our pick of the best cultural must-sees and dos set to recharge the mind and expand the senses before you get back to the daily grind.

Closing this weekend is (our favourite art movement) the Modernists exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW. Highlights from the European collection of modernists include examples of post-impressionism, cubism, and avant-garde photography ensure this exhibition is a must.

Bowie fan or not, this retrospective should be on your list. Celebrate the life of a music, fashion and cultural icon with Blender Gallery’s stunning collection of photographs in the STARMAN 1947-2016; A Tribute to David Bowie exhibition.

Alternatively, whet your creative appetite with a visit to the Brett Whiteley Studio in Surry Hills, the workplace and home of the legendary Australian artist.

Indulging your artistic interests demands an outfit to match. The beauty of our Rae Skinny Jeans is that you can take them from the couch to the gallery without losing shape, or comfort. Add a silk blouse, our Cassie Pussybow is a modern take on the classic style and finish with the perfect inner-city coat to layer on as your move from exhibition to exhibition. Our Penny coat is incredibly cosy made in a double faced felted wool blend, and featuring a waterfall collar.

A Weekend Long (long) lunch

All this mind-expanding artwork-peering tends to work up an appetite. Why don’t you make a meal of it with the best new eateries that you’ll be talking about until next weekend?

Harking back to classic French cuisine that has since gone out of fashion (and inevitably back in fashion), you could almost walk right past new establishment, Hubert in the heart of Sydney. Swillhouse’s anticipated first restaurant is going retro, peppered with the grandeur of another era and they don’t mind if you call it ‘daggy’.

Darlinghurst’s newest wine bar is brought to us by the ACME team and is head chef Analiese Gregory’s first solo venture. The previous home to The Passage, Bar Brose offers old-school French influences with a wine list that’ll ensure you make your long lunch that little bit longer. With the chance of running into an industry honcho (ahem, Massimo Bottura, Peter Gilmore, Dan Hong), this is the weekend to try if for yourself, before you’re lining up around the corner.

In Melbourne, while you may have missed out on the NOMA pop-up, we recommended you let your tastebuds experience Nora in Carlton. As stated by the head chefs Sarin Rojanametin and Jean Thamthanakorn, “we want culinary adventure to be accessible with a menu that pleases the palette and challenges the mind”. With mixed reviews, why don’t you go for the “progressive experience” tasting menu and make up your own?

This weekend’s long lunch requests suitable attire (as in, one that will take you into the night). A sleeveless knit is a sophisticate option for indoor dining, and our Jamie Sleeveless knit in 100% Merino Wool features a funnel neck and hem in a rib construction for a modern look. Yes, it has a regular fit and yes you can eat to your heart’s content. Pair up with a stay-black Rae Skinnies and a black leather boot – our heeled Amalie Boot has a gold eyelet and stud detail to take you to your next venue.
