We Want Every Single Piece From The Bondi Born Resort ‘23 Show (Including *Those* Jelly Sandals)

We'll take one of everything, please.

Marking the midday point for the first day of Afterpay Australian Fashion Week, Bondi Born celebrated an ode to sorbet shades and relaxed silhouettes.
Taking place at Rozelle's White Bay Cruise Terminal, Bondi Born's 'Phosphor' Summer and Resort 2023 collection was a delightful display of relaxed silhouettes, oversized ensembles and strategic cut-outs.
But more importantly, all eyes were on the brand's homage to the humble jelly shoe.

Each model took to the runway sporting a pair of the Y2K-inspired sandals in monochrome, pastel tones, that each boasted an exaggerated, flat form heel or heavily treaded sole. From jelly shoes to rubber-like sandals with velcro-straps ascending up toward the calf, the footwear (courtesy of Charles & Keith) on offer were a serious blast from the past—and quite frankly, we'd love to take to the streets in a pair ourselves.
With a strong focus on dropped hems, flowing trousers and tailored pieces, the vibrant violet runway was contrasted perfectly with shades of chartreuse, baby blue, mint and neon greens and lilacs.
When it came to the beauty element of the show, hair styling was kept sleek and naturally-inspire. As for makeup, matching monochrome moments applied on the eyes and pouts were kept neutral, while some were puckered up in raspberry tones.

As the audience poured in (quite literally, on a dreary Sydney day), the models who took to the runway were wonderfully diverse and celebrated the range of beautiful figures that all women are born with.
And as the show began, music played and the models were yet to be seen, that is, until they began descending from escalators to the side of the audience.
Their entire journey to the runway, along with their summer and warm weather ensembles was a celebration of the travel and escapades that are yet to come as life returns (somewhat) back to normal.
Speaking of summer, the collection was adorned with an array of swimwear options, all created to be worn seamlessly with the garments on offer through strategically placed cut-outs.
All in all, Bondi Born brought the essence of a vibrant, pastel-hued summer front of mind.
And after the curse of La Niña on Australian shores, here's hoping for a beach-riddled summer ahead, so that Bondi Born's pieces can live in their full glory.
