Hunker down in the depths of winter in relaxed soft silhouettes patterned with the reassuring warmth of winter flowers, grounding ochres overlayed with elegant, bold knitted checks. 

Take in a delicate sunset of soft blues, warm raspberries and vibrant chartreuse adorn artisan woven checks and high contrast prints. This capsule offers ease and escapism with cosy cardigans, pinafores, skirts and wide leg pants.

Amadeo was a Portuguese artist born in 1887, rising as a first generation Portuguese modernist painter in the early 20th century. He painted in often-abstract forms and bold and expressive colours. Nancybird has celebrated Amadeo’s famed ‘Clown, Horse, Salamander’. This futuristic motif brings captivating colour and plays to the eye of the beholder. Amadeo’s work takes us on a journey to Europe and carefree time spent travelling and discovering different cultures. 

Bloom

Acclimatise to winter and relax in bold, dynamic classic styles brushed with joyful winter pansies by local Melbourne artist Melissa Murphy. This capsule keeps winter in check with cheerful patterned painted blues and big primary colour blocks underpinning floaty skirts, skivvies, pants and pinafores.

Melissa Murphy is an artist, cook, shop-owner and mother living and working in Naarm, Melbourne. Melissa’s studio practice explores painting’s ability to store the life, time, emotion, labour and love of the painter.  Often painting from memory, Murphy’s multi-layered canvases map the fragmentary nature of time and remembering.

Murdie Nampijinpa Morris was born at Rabbit Flat in the 1930s, a tiny settlement in the middle of the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Nancybird founder Emily Wright reminisces about time spent exploring Tasmania’s abundant and diverse colourscapes. Painting in a mix of inks and acrylics, Emily was inspired by Mount Field National Park, where the land is rich with the world’s tallest grass trees and the seasonal glow of dry grasses contrasting against the aquamarine seas of Bay of Fires.
