We are proud to present the final instalment of our four part Johnnie Walker Red Label Spring Racing Style Guide – Melbourne Cup. It’s been amazing working with Johnnie Walker and M.J. Bale to curate these editorials, we hope you’ve enjoyed them.
The Melbourne Cup truly is the race that stops a nation. Workplaces all but close down, schools get out early and anyone with a spare dollar makes their way to the nearest pub to have a flutter. Meanwhile at Flemington outfits are all about colour and flair, even peacocking if you may. For the ladies, no dress is too bright and no fascinator too extravagant. For the men it’s an opportunity to sport something a little bolder than usual, a bright hue of blue, a vibrant tie or a pocket square with some attitude.
The yellow rose is the flower of the Melbourne Cup and here it’s been incorporated to provide a splash of complimentary colour against the rich blues of the MJ Bale suit. Styled with a pair of brown suede double monks and a spotted red pocket square you’ve got yourself the perfect Cup outfit. Confidence is key when sporting your boldest look, wear it like you mean it and no one will doubt you for a second.
