We’re so thrilled to be able to announce our very new collaboration that has literally just launched in-store + online now! If you’re a regular here, or new to what we do – we’ve really been focussing on creating our own prints here at Made590. For our latest collaboration we’ve teamed up with Brisbane based artist, Hayley Wills. Hayley works with vibrant oil paints and was discovered by Christina on the wonderful world of Instagram. We asked Hayley to collaborate on some fabrics and luckily for us, she said YES!
Her work is bold, bright, colourful and incredibly detailed, all key things we love and admire at made590! We scanned Hayley’s original paintings (which we were lucky enough to keep for a giveaway – keep scrolling to the bottom!) and made the elements into a fabric repeat, a process which meant we were able to capture all those beautiful brush strokes and texture! You can see all these wonderful elements on each garment and you get a real feel for Hayley’s process, making each piece truly one of a kind and a talking point.
We have two beautiful prints in this range, Gum Blossom will lend itself perfectly to dressy occasions and for work with it’s contemporary-cool colour way of blue, blush and rust. The oversized print is so stand-out and shows the texture of Hayley’s paintings perfectly. Party Gum is the perfect colours for jumping into Summer! Our favourite dark navy base is covered in amazingly vibrant gum leaves and gum nuts, with shades of pink, green and blue, just perfect for those summertime parties and even days at the beach.
Our Hayley Wills x Made590 collaboration is available in six different styles with every single style available in our every body range! In our Party Gum print we have the: Every Body Kenzi skirt, Every Body Jessie Dress and Every Body Ripley Reversible Dress. The Jessie dress in its stretch sateen finish is the perfect ensemble for party season and more dressy occasions. The Kenzi skirt in its classic, modest shape is great for work teamed back with one of our more basic tops or ballet wraps – although a fun print, the navy base is still appropriate for the office. The Ripley is not only comfortable in this stretch jersey fabric, making it easy to throw on and not have to even think about styling it – it also has the added benefit of the reversible necklines making it perfect for every day/casual wear with the scoop neckline and can be dressed up with the higher neckline.
The second installment of our Hayley Wills x Made590 collaboration features the Gum Blossom print available in: Every Body Penelope Dress, Every Body Valentina Skirt and Every Body Trixie Shirt. Our classic and popular Penelope dress – a customer favourite – has been created in a lovely stretch sateen fabric making it perfect to wear for work with its darker base and for dressier more formal occasions. Please note if you already own one of our Penelope Dresses we have found this to be a little smaller in comparison to others, so you may need to size up for this one. The gum blossom also comes in the statement and dramatic Valentina Skirt – the perfect piece to stand out from the crowd. If you’re new to our designs here, the Valentina has an adjustable waist button setting, perfect for those weekend lunches ; ) The trixie shirt is also one that can be worn for work and for play – button her all the way to the top and you have yourself the perfect piece for meetings and work attire. And to take her into the weekend, you can even leave the buttons undone to the bottom of the shirt to create a more cropped, tie waist – you can see this below in the gum blossom style section. Team this back with a plain black Kenzi skirt for 9-5 and a pair of jeans for the weekend! We really have created something for everyone and for every occasion!
