W’MENSWEAR / HOW WE MAKE OUR CLOTHES.

Our first season for W’menswear has closed its order books to our new retailers around the world. We couldn’t be more chuffed with the response to our debut Fall collection, and to give you an idea of what goes on in the underbelly of the rag trade, we invite you to share the journey with us.
PONYTAIL FOR OSCAR WYLEE PART TWO / VINTAGE WORKWEAR

PONYTAIL FOR OSCAR WYLEE PART TWO / VINTAGE WORKWEAR

We’ve mixed and matched strong acetate with classic workwear silhouettes, using all the vintage from Down Under we could get our hands on. Pastel tones were the base colours for our Australiana festival, and we even managed to throw a classic pair of King Gee coveralls from the 70s for good measure.

RESEARCH, FIELD WORK, TRIAL & ERROR. [ VISUALISING THE UPCOMING SEASON ]

We helped style what we do best, vintage workwear pieces to help visualise a story for the upcoming ladies’ Cabourn x Lybro season. Our research into women at work during WW2 has lead us down this elegant pathway that painted a platform in the discourse of feminine identity. We are fascinated with the idea that women express their femininity, not only instinctually but in pushing our ability and intellects. That’s why we draw so much inspiration from the greatness that grew from this romantic era.

THE SEA IS PARTING: OUR THOUGHTS ON MATTHEW DOLAN’S COLLECTION AT NYFW

We just want to say that Matthew Dolan’s work made our week in New York. As he did with his first collection, (that we must have raved on about a minute ago) workwear was given a new form. His poetic approach to creation and construction, was spun into thread and woven into realness, was alliterative and continuative, which sets a steady pace for the future of his label. This collection felt a little more consumable, which was a smart move. We like smarty pants who think about these things, it hints a little about what we can imagine the creativity taking us.

MATTHEW DOLAN MADE A NEW FLAVOUR FOR GALS LIKE US.

Matthew Dolan made a new food-group everyone. He shredded his classic American sandwich up into strips, wove it into a rainbow cake and when you bite into it, you burp unicorns while farting sparkles. The sum of its parts made a whole new thing. It’s workwear for women at its highest evolution.
