The best thing about living in this sunburnt country is that we’re almost never covered up by grey-scale, floor-length trench coats. It’s all sunshine and rainbows, and our wardrobe should reflect that. Summer festivities call for bold prints and these Australian brands are delivering the goods this silly season.
Deck the halls, and your coat hangers, in these fine and fancy goods.
If statement floral prints on basic cuts is your thing, Obus is your brand. The Melbourne institution has been tailoring beautiful wears out of its Victorian workshop for over 18 years. It makes at least 80% of its clothing onshore and is commitment to producing small runs of high-quality, well-made clothing. The Obus prints are easily recognisable by their retro undertones, and make the prefect addition to your work or weekend wardrobe.
A bit left of field compared to the above brands but equally as exciting when it comes to killer prints, Phoebe Paradise is the punk in this mix. Its statement designs come straight from the nineties to spice up our summer wardrobe and its classic bathers are what the poolside’s been screaming for. Try not to party in these pieces, I dare you.
