Jamie Azzopardi, our favourite Stylist does Splendour in the Grass with Wild Rhino.
July is the big month for Australian festival ‘Splendour in The Grass’ and with the biggest festival of the year comes the big decisions on what to wear.
Jamie Azzopardi, celebrity fashion stylist and culture bloggers gives us an insight on all things Splendour and how to stay stylish while also being prepared for the unpredictable weather. We had a chat with Jamie to learn a little more about Splendour and talk about his own personal style.
Hey Jamie, tell us a couple of your Splendour highlights?
Hey Guys, well, hard to choose, but I would say my Splendour highlights included AllDay and friends set, he brought out the Veronicas, Childish Gambino who showed us all why he’s at the top of his game and also Hayden James who proved that Aussie music is on the rise, yet again. SZA killed her set and gave us something to dance to and Cosmos Midnight played History with Asta which is one of my favs.
There were so many amazing acts, what was your favourite?
It’s hard to pick a favourite as so many people did so well, and I got to see a large variety of people I never saw before but it’s hard to go past the Hilltop Hoods for me. They made fun of the fact that they were second choice and still managed a way to bring out an ensemble cast of well noted artists who killed each and every song! My personal favourite was when Illy performed with them, the vibe was magical.
Okay moving onto the outfits. What is your go-to Splendour get-up?
My go to Splendour outfit it something comfy yet warm, they are long days, but people often forget Byron gets cold. A nice shirt, a hoodie, some jeans and boots will do you well.
Which are your favourite Wild Rhino shoes and why?
I’m a boots man so the Wild Rhino pairs I wore at Splendour we’re perfect, both Tyler and Thredbo! I love them.
On a casual day, what outfit would you pair with your favourite Wild Rhino shoes?
I think a plain tee and some denim would go with any pair of Wild Rhino shoes. I’m a jumper or hoodie guy so that for me during winter is my go-to.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Street, Fashion-Forward & Eclectic
Our favourite festival outfit from Jamie has to be the ‘double denim’. It’s the epitome of Australian winter festivals, and Jamie executes this style perfectly, pairing Outland Denim and Assembly Label together with our Tyler Boots, the two-tone denim allows for a more casual look and the Tyler boots are the killer combo to looking sharp but keeping sturdy. Cos who the hell knows what type of adventures will come your way at Splendour.
