Still Life welcomes the longer days and channel the joy of warm nights with vibrant colours, bold prints and statement checks. This capsule is all about fun with rich palettes contrasting with soft fabrics and delicate frills, elevating classic shapes with unexpected details.
Inspired by life, food, music and travel, Elle-Louise Burguez is a talented artist and musician based in the Hinterlands of Northern New South Wales. Working spontaneously, Elle’s artworks depict the beauty of still life - simple forms of a vase, a flower, a chair, a cup, a cantaloupe – the objects floating playfully across the fabric. Elle chooses to create work that feels good - the results capture a mood of calm and joy synonymous with a summer’s day – windows open, dappled sun and breeze flowing over the curated personal objects inside.
Tiale is designed in collaboration with Cora-Allan Wickliffe a multidisciplinary artist of Māori and Niue descent, originally from Waitakere, New Zealand. In recent years her practice has focused on her efforts to revive Hiapo, an art form of detailed geometric designs and symbolic motifs – highly prized decoration to be worn or displayed. As the only living traditional maker of Hiapo, Cora-Allan Wickliffe creates her careful linework with the nib of pandanus seed pods pressed onto barkcloth.

Discover Woodland our first drop for Spring Summer 2021. Designs that signal the beginnings of spring, textures that mimic flowering heathland and depictions of blossoming Banksias to wake us from the winter. Easy denim shapes and cheerful stripes create this trans-seasonal drop that hints at the warmer weather coming. Silhouettes focus on comfort and ease with a mix of cottons, organic jersey, washed denim, fine corduroy and cotton knitwear. Composed of spring layering essentials, skivvies and pinafores that can be worn on their own or layered for those cooler days.
Designed in collaboration with artist Nicola Woodcock based in the leafy edge of the Northern Beaches, Sydney. Nicola’s landscapes focus on the sculptural – blooming and spent Banksia seed pods, the silhouette of trees on the ridgeline and the gnarled branches of an ancient eucalyptus. Her work is an appreciation of the Australian bush and a celebration of the place she calls home.
