Melbourne’s most glam power couple and the fashionable force behind popular blog Base Colour – Shaun Lyle and Holly T bring a whole new meaning to dressing in pairs.

We invited Base Colour to stop by St. Collins Lane and curate their favourite winter looks for the dapper dude. While menswear was the focus of the visit, what woman could resist the temptations of Zadig and Voltaire or The Kooples – certainly not Holly T and we don’t blame her!

Here’s a sneak peek of Base Colour’s picks from Peter Jackson, The Kooples and MJ Bale.


For the quintessential Melbourne man who doesn’t stray from style: it’s about sharp tailoring and bold suits with thoughtful finishing touches like silk pocket squares.

The power suit envy is real. Holly shows us that black is back with this two-piece suit from The Kooples pairing it effortlessly with a lace cami (a trans-seasonal wardrobe must.)

Shaun sets the bar for cool-casual, wearing The Kooples’ leather jacket and smart jeans: a stellar combination to take you from day-to-night.

Nothing says style like a well-cut charcoal suit complete with rich burgundy detailing. Stand out among the pack with this version from MJ Bale.
