Travel a time-slowed tale where Atlantic waters rest along sun bathed shores and the sound of Fado envelops a new season story of signature simplicity and poetic balance inspired by the elegance of Australian design and the charm of Porto, Portugal.

Coastal echoes and purposeful design cast movements of permanence throughout the collection. Day dressing finds a relaxed sensibility across coordinating separates and warm-weather lengths as nightfall welcomes refined tailoring in soft summer suiting and silken occasionware.

uplifting palettes and punctuated tones

Warm colours rise from the ground in uplifting palettes and punctuated tones. Strawberry, apple and seashell mix with pimento, port and Azulejos blues as traditional check and textural stripe meld with house-designed prints musing Portuguese navigators and creatures of the deep.

natural fibres traverse the warm

Fabrications continue natural reflections across breathable fibres and considered blends. Crisp cottons and flaxen linens merge with softened cupro, viscose and tencel offering light to medium weights for versatile layering and solo statements as the warmth appears.

finishing touches

The final chapter culminates across hero additions in matching colour stories and smooth matte leathers. Cross-body bags converge with platform slides, chunky heeled mules and clog adaptations exploring peninsula palettes of azul blue, subdued mango and seafoam green.

This season take a seat in the sun and embark on a journey of contemporary femininity inspired by the elegance of Australian design and the charm of Porto, Portugal. Enjoy slowly.
