We’re always surprised by the creative connections you make when you least expect it. Last year at the Melbourne Cup, our Creative Director, Maree Oaten met the amazing Leina Broughton, when Maree just happened to be wearing Leina Broughton’s Stella Dress in Peony. The connection was instant and it wasn’t long before a collaboration was born.
The collaboration started with Leina pulling together her inspiration and collating design ideas that would work with the upcoming seasons. Leina was inspired to work with splash and marble prints, so from there Maree went through her library of work in progress to see if there was a common starting ground.
The splash (ink and gunmetal) was a perfect starting point and from there Leina began to play with season relevant colour backgrounds and altered the scale for each. Once the prints were selected, these were sent off to the fabric printers and the production process began.
We’re so excited to share with you the final pieces which you can now shop online.
