Fans of Sir the Label and Posse will love Dissh’s linen-heavy collections complete with ruffles, high necklines and sexy cut out details. While the brand doesn’t currently have a UK stockist, Australianj dollar prices are more affordable compared with others offering a similar look – expect to pay around $100 (£55) for a blouse and $190 (£100) for a midi dress.
Founder Elinor Joslin describes her designs as ‘romantic styling for the minimalist woman’ – indeed, Joslin’s collections include plenty of feminine bows and ruffles, combined with a characteristically neutral Australian colour palette. Fabrics are an important consideration, with pieces made predominantly from luxurious linens and silk.
Inspired by contemporary Australian style, Bondi Born is known for its sleek, pared-back swimwear and apparel – all of which is anchored in sustainable and ethical production. While their swimsuits are well worth a look too, the brand’s earthy-toned dresses and separates in natural fabrics make them the ideal choice for city summers.
Originally starting as a leather goods brand, Oroton expanded its offering with a full ready-to-wear collection a few years ago. Unlike other Australian brands, Oroton’s pieces have a more structured, utilitarian feel – think smart/casual dresses, tailoring and elegant silhouettes in an earthy colour palette.
Floaty and feminine, Turquoise Lane’s designs embody the spirit of carefree beach living in Perth, where the brand is based. If you’re a fan of Faithfull The Brand, you’ll love Turquoise Lane’s puffed sleeves, shirred details and playful matching sets.
Co-founders Deborah Sams and Mary Lou Ryan established Bassike in 2006, with a vision to create luxurious and wearable everyday pieces. The brand focuses on high-quality design and is committed to sustainable manufacturing, too, sourcing organically grown, locally knitted and dyed cotton that’s predominantly produced in Australia. The good news is it recently launched on NET-A-PORTER, with an extensive selection of chic pieces – we love the drawstring waist shorts.
