A Fresh Vision of Australian Style

Inspired by our life in Melbourne, we create easy, enduring pieces, which are classically constructed to outlive the owner.
Breathable, durable and comfortable, the collection is designed for lives well-lived, with confidence.


Integrity and Provenance


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 are committed to the philosophy of the slow-lifestyle that we cater, to in the production of every product. We only work with independent, ethical and family-run manufacturers in Verona and Sofia that work hard to put their people first. And in caring for our makers, we end up with more lovingly made clothes

Our Wool


Australian Wool

We source our wool from Australia for all of our knitwear and they are produced in Verona in Italy. Our wool is famous the world over for softness and technical benefits.

Our Merino wool is naturally breathable. Wool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air with a natural resistance to wrinkles. Our Merino is from Geelong about an hour's drive from Melbourne and incredibly

soft. In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.







Christian Kimber

Our Journey

Christian launched his eponymous brand in Melbourne, in 2014, with a small, capsule collection of footwear and accessories. Developing a cult following early on amongst the menswear crowd in Australia and abroad, by 2016, Christian was able to extend the collection to include clothing, grow a global wholesale network and open his first bricks and mortar store in the Melbourne creative hub, Fitzroy, and now a second store in Armadale.

The brand vision has always focused on making luxury quality clothing more attainable to men in terms of meeting the needs of modern lifestyle as well as cost. Taking a ‘slow-fashion’ approach to retail, the design process is underpinned by the three core pillars of modernity, functionality and durability - with a view to redefining the concept of modern Australian style.
