Clothed in the beauty of the Australian landscape: Kuwaii

It can be harsh and unforgiving, but there’s nothing else quite like the beauty of Australia’s landscapes. Aqua pools, red rock and sweeping yellow desert: it’s these elements Australian nature that formed the inspiration for Kuwaii’s spring 2012/13 collection, titled Landscape.

Specifically it was a 1970s aerial photograph of a Queensland river system that started it all. From there, Designer Kristy Barber worked with prints and colours that reflect the beauty of the sunburnt country, paring back the bright hues with softer earthy and desert tones. Kuwaii’s cuts are easy, breezy and modern; minimal silk dresses and draping spring trench coats definite highlights of the collection.
