Spend 5: Robert Agius

Robert Agius has worked for Calibre for over ten years. His current role sees him as head of product and design for one of Australia’s most respected labels which leads the way in mens fashion.

Calibre’s collections are always contemporary and made up of wearable, aspirational fashion pieces of the highest quality that range extensively from its signature well-tailored casual garments through to its exquisitely made, sharp suiting.

Robert is currently working 12 months ahead on the 2016 summer collection, and thankfully took 5 minutes out of his busy schedule to spend 5 with TWAIN…
