How to: Shayne Tino’s idiosyncratic style

Celebrate Golden Week in style with Shayne Tino’s new-season designer picks. 

Australian designer and tastemaker Shayne Tino wears Alexander McQueen Bucket Hat, Skeleton T-shirt, Bum Bag and Bleached Jeans with AMI Ami de Couer Mid Top Sneakers.

Shayne Tino knows style. And this season, he’s bringing it in spades. The Zimbabwe-born Australian designer launches his own brand: CATALYST (coming this week to David Jones). Having worked with storied international labels, such as Louis Vuitton and Loewe, and collaborated with Virgil Abloh, Tino delivers tailored looks alongside streetwear-inspired pieces for his first collection. Mr Jones gets the lowdown on new-season must-haves and what to wear when we can finally celebrate together again.

Mr Jones: What are you excited about wearing this season?

Shayne Tino: I’m excited to announce my new brand CATALYST has launched at David Jones, which I’ll be wearing on repeat this season. The label is a modern fusion of men’s tailoring and streetwear. My must-have pick from Collection 1 is the Love Crimes shirt.

Shayne Tino wears AMI Ami de Couer Cap, Alexander McQueen Graffiti Detail Jeans and Tread Slick High Top Sneakers.

What is your investment piece for the season?

I can’t go past the platform [high top] sneakers from Alexander McQueen. It’s an edgy, elevated take on a classic streetwear silhouette. You’ll see me paring them back with baggy trousers and monochrome looks.

What are you wearing to celebrate with friends and family (when we’re able to)?

I can’t wait to put on a party shirt from MSGM. Their fun colours and patterns are a perfect fit, bringing good energy to the celebrations. I’ll pare it back with a great pair of slacks – Alexander McQueen trousers are a favourite from this season.

Are there any trends you’re looking forward to trying this season?

The gothcore trend – dark tones, platforms etc. I don’t usually wear a lot of black, but this dark aesthetic is coming through in a huge way. I’ll be experimenting with this trend and can’t wait to wear heavy-soled boots, like this edgy pair from Versace.
