  • Description

    The Shell Tee in our amazing Kuwaii x Kayleigh Heydon print is a true staple that is worn with ease, because of its style, simplicity and versatility. It’s a flattering and easy tee style, perfect for wearing layered up and down, and so striking in this beautiful seasonal print. Our Shell Tee is an integral part of our 'Classics' range, and is one of our most popular styles we have ever produced, since we first introduced it in 2011. We have perfected the cut to suit all shapes, sizes and heights, and we know that this is a truly beloved wardrobe staple, because our customers have told us so!

    — Small capped sleeve
    — Wide curved neckline
    — Finishes at hip length
    — Boxy silhouette
    — Slightly curved hemline

    This piece showcases our print collaboration with Melbourne artist Kayleigh Heydon, who creates sculptures and paintings in response to her 'physical, social and political landscape'. Her work draws inspiration from structural forms and light, and is often an echo of a time or space once visited. A documentation of her surroundings, she reflects on spaces that give her a sense of balance and strength, often using bold colours and soft shapes. 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.

    Sizing Notes

    Our beloved Shell Tee seems to be the perfect fitting tee shape for all shapes and sizes of our customers. This piece is a more boxy silhouette, however it’s designed to be worn in your usual size, and fit freely and floaty over the bust and waist. The neckline, shoulder and armhole fit true to size, however we would advise you to size down if you are between sizes. The fit of this beautiful piece has been tried and tested from our loyal customers since 2011.

  • Fabrication & Care

    Fabric Information
    100% Cotton Jacquard

    A jacquard weave is a decorative design that’s woven into the fabric on a jacquard loom, forming a slightly raised decorative area – in this case it’s subtle lines running across the base fabric, which we have then digitally printed, to give an additional textural element. This fabric is a medium weight, but still super drapey, and very flattering and comfortable over the body. The 100% natural fibre component of cotton means it breathes beautifully and can be worn both warm, layered, or trans-seasonally. This is a feature fabric and we love the incorporation of the jacquard weave on the base fabric with the beautiful print over. 

    Care Instructions

    — Do not bleach, tumble dry, wring, spin or soak.
    — Roll in towel to absorb excess water, reshape & dry flat without delay.
    — Cool iron.
    — This garment can be dry cleaned at a trusted, environmentally friendly dry cleaner
