    This piece showcases our print collaboration with Melbourne artist Minna Leunig, who creates large scale artworks that reflect ‘playful, primal and earthy images inspired by the natural world’. Minna’s beautiful print was inspired by native Australian flora and fauna, and each piece we designed using her print was refined and simplified – stripped of darts, seams and more – so that each item becomes a walking mural.

    A Kuwaii Classic

    Our Kuwaii Classics are our ultimate most loved and best selling styles. They emphasise classic and timeless design, ease of care, wearability and amazing everyday pieces that can easily be styled to create a beautiful thought out look. These styles are designed to work with our seasonal collections and are released 4 times a year.
    The silhouettes remain identical, with design, fabric and colour updates to sit with each season. These styles are rarely reduced, as the fabrications, colours and styles are designed to thoughtfully carry through across our seasons.
