5 Australian Fashion Brands At The Top Of My Wishlist This Summer

Alice Hartwell

Summer appears to be, slowly but surely, kicking into gear this year. A rise in temps sets a style shift in force: out with the coats and long sleeves, in with the beachy, breathable and relaxed fits. No fashion culture captures this essence greater than brands hailing from the land of sun itself – Australia. These Aussie labels hitting the mainstream, optimistically, share a mutual commitment to sustainable production and responsible materials. Pair this with timeless, contemporary designs and you have a capsule summer wardrobe to see you through a lifetime. Slather on the SPF 50 –  here’s 5 Australian sustainable fashion brands filling up my wish list fast this season.

Most likely featured in the OOTD of your favourite, minimalist fashion influencer, St. Agni’s enduring, elevated designs never fail to hit the mark. Relaxed yet refined, their pieces are expertly crafted to last with conscious materials and transparent, ethical supply chains.

The brand that defines comfort – allow me to introduce you to Deiji Studios. I was lucky enough to snag one of their sets second-hand on Depop a few months back, and have essentially lived in it every time the sun comes out. Specialising in OEKO-TEX® certified loungewear-meets-daywear sets, their simplistic, no-fuss garms serve as core pieces for regular rotation in any summer wardrobe.
