We took the palette and made it tonal to reflect the sun swept landscape.
We took the print and made it psychedelic to reflect the dreamscape within.
We took the fabric and made it textured, to reflect nature all around us.
Utopia is an imaginary paradise. An otherworldly, mesmerising destination we dream of when all paths feel closed to us. It is an island surrounded by crystal blue waters glistening in the sunlight. An ocean so clear that you can see fish swimming between your feet and coral growing like colourful underwater villages.
A tropical dreamscape with vast, rolling sand dunes and ocean-swept palm fronds – Utopia is the feeling of freedom. Euphoria. Utopia is a familiar state of ease and homecoming and at the same time, a perpetual state of anticipation for the unknown – for over every sand dune a new adventure awaits. Utopia is the feeling of being on holiday wherever you are.
Utopia was shot on Mulgumpin, Quandamooka Country, and means 'place of sandhills'. We were enamoured by the island’s complex and fragile ecology – and pondered it’s impermanence – the shape of the island is constantly changing in response to the ocean currents and winds.
Our vision for this shoot was to connect to nature, exploring the textures of air, land and water, so shooting with Lisa Fatnowna, a Kuku Yalanji Woman from Moa and Ugar Islands in the Torres Strait Island region, against this stunning landscape was what dreams are made of. Her playfulness on set was infectious and she couldn’t help but light up with smiles as she ran her fingers through the ocean or tip-toed up the long trunk of a wind-swept palm tree.
90% of the Utopia collection itself contains preferred fibres. Utilising organic cotton, hemp, responsibly sourced cellulose fibres, linen and recycled synthetics, the fibres promise a lower impact on the planet than their conventional alternatives.
One of the stand out stories is Lady Palm, made with a hand-loom fabrication created by artisans in Panipat, India. It was very special to partner with artisans on these styles – to document and learn about the skilful weaving tradition over high speed modernised production.
Whether you’re already traipsing off to some far-off place, dreaming of your next getaway or finding a quiet utopia close to home, we hope you love these pieces and the intention behind them.
