We’re pleased to release our forth limited edition capsule collaboration with Zachary Bennett-Brook, our good mate and the artist behind Saltwater Dreamtime. Zachary is a contemporary Indigenous artist born and raised in Wollongong (Dharawal Country) with a love for the ocean and creating artworks which represent his cultural heritage and passions.

On the Saltwater Dreamtime Vol 4 collection, Zach said “For this design I drew inspiration from our natural environment, in particular leaves and water flowing, moving. I decided to add a few different artwork style in each of the little sections which play off those natural themes, with the more circular designs reflecting water and ripples on the water and the sharper harder lined sections reflecting the earth and dry land.”

This year we wanted to kick 12 Days of Good Vibes off on the right foot and put our money where our mouth is, so riding off Zach’s notability we decided we wanted to give someone else a voice and platform they wouldn’t usually get. Enter the local Indigenous artist group, Toys Change Lives. An employment pathway staffed by Indigenous youth who have been released from Juvenile Justice Detention Centers or who have had a brush with the Justice System and are believed to be ‘At Risk’, we wanted to support Toys Change Lives anyway we can after seeing the amazing work they do, so this year we’re releasing a limited run of toys online and in-store to help get the word out, as well as giving 100% of sales back to the epic team to help fund art supplies and help them continue their epic work.

Find out more about Zach Bennett-Brook, Toys Change Lives and of course 12 Days of Good Vibes on the blog.

Afends – With a team of powerful and talented ladies (proving that a girl is most definitely a gun), we spent the day at our local beach taking in the surrounding beauty and reminding ourselves to be in the moment, be here & now, be mindful & present, and how lucky we are to live in such a magical location. The breathtaking Brunswick Heads where the scenic valley with its lush emerald trees meets creamy white sands and clear blue waters provided the perfect backdrop for our latest swim & eco-friendly Summer range. Our summer collection continues our love for Hemp providing a core range of refined, relaxed styles with a timeless aesthetic. A focus on simplicity and effortless styling is at the forefront as each piece complements one another to provide a cohesive range of designs to mix and match any mood. Relax in the soft textures of our new everyday hemp designs or embrace a bold 70’s flare paired with a fierce graphic provided by our collaboration with local artist Lord Newry. Get peachy with our new swim pieces in custom oversized plaid and throw on a classic blue denim cut for easy summer styling. Bringing together all the facets of femininity with a focus on sustainability, our summer collection is here and ready for the rays.
