A laid back ethos of Australian style with a directional European influence provided the inspiration for the Politix Spring/Summer 14-15 campaign which ARC shot beside the stunning French Riviera in Cannes starring one of the most promising up-and-coming Aussie faces in male modelling, Nathaniel Visser.

The campaign was shot by New York-based Australian photographer Nick Hudson (Russh, Miss Vogue, Elle UK) and with the French Riviera as a backdrop, the images fittingly complement the sharp 60s-inspired tailoring, sophisticated sportswear and statement black tie pieces (the velvet dinner jacket revival continues!) of the new collection.The Politix SS14-15 collection is now available in stores:
