- Christian Kimber
Our design vision is to redefine the concept of modern Australian style.
We only create products with independent, ethical and family-run manufacturers in Melbourne, Sofia and Milan that work hard to put their people first.
We design happy clothing. The fashion industry today is often more focused on profit-margin than craft. This manifests in low-quality garments produced en masse with little thought as to the art or origin of the item. In contrast to fast-fashion, Christian Kimber is dedicated to our promise of timeless, functional and durable garments of the highest quality.
We use design to redefine the concept of modern Australian style.
We create this vision by designing luxury quality clothing and footwear, that is more attainable to men in terms of meeting the needs of modern lifestyle as well as cost.
Refined silhouettes deliver the functionality required of a modern lifestyle and fulfil a void in the market for a sophisticated Australian aesthetic. Incredibly wearable fits have been designed to reflect the confidence and versatility of the global man\’s lifestyle.
Our designs represent the needs of modern masculinity to make the art of dressing for contemporary Australian lifestyle, completely effortless.
Design is the major player impacting our business performance.
