Friends of made: Miranda Murphy

Miranda Murphy is a brand that we’ve stocked for quite a while at Made590 and she’s a classic that our customers always come back to. She’s known for her simple, yet striking prints which she designs herself in silhouettes that drape the body effortlessly.
This season we have her sought after box tee blouses in three different prints – the autumn garland, finch and wattle.
These pieces are so light weight and perfect for tran-seasonal wear as you can wear a long sleeve underneath, a cardi and coats over the top without it looking too bulky – making this cotton popplin top perfect for winter layers, but one you’ll be able to whip out in the summer too and wear with shorts and skirts. The lightweight fabric makes it a perfect travelling companion, too folding up into a super compact size.
The box tee blouses are also perfect worn with pants and jeans as they are a good length sitting below the hip – not too short and not too long – you can wear them tucked out and not have it ride up your back, but long enough to be able to tuck into pants and skirts too.
In a broad size range: XS- XXL.
They’re available instore and online now.

Friends of made: Surface Art

This is a bit of a series we’ll be carrying out on the blog for the next few posts where we’ll feature some of the lady owned businesses that we feature and stock in the shop here at Made590.
Regular customers of Made590 will be very well acquainted with the Australian brand, Surface Art.
Moyra, the designer behind the brand is known for her classic  silhouettes, prints and colour. Her newest range is in store now and features wool skirts, corduroy, cotton, digital prints and comfy elasticated waists.
Surface Art pieces are a great investment as they are perfect for work, for dressier occasions and for weekend wear as well. Known for her classic A-line shaped skirts, her beautifully made shift dresses and easy to wear prints – there is something for everyone in Surface Arts’ latest Autumn/Winter collection.
To get to know more about Moyra herself, have a read of her bio below and take a look at the latest collection.
Her pieces are available exclusively in-store, so pop in to take a look!

Layers galore because it's our favourite season of the year!

The cold snap is here, and the layers are coming out – our every day basics are the perfect companion to team back with your favourie print skirt, great worn under our new pinafores, layered under your favourite Made 590 dresses, with your favourite pair of jeans or denim skirt.

Our popular Sybil scoop basics are available both in-store and online now in a variation of stripe and plain colors. Sybil is a popular one here at Made590 as she has the versatility of being able to wear two ways – either with the higher neck line to the front or the lower, boat neckline to the front – all you have to do is flip her around and, ta-da you have two different tops in one!

We have a colour for everyone ranging from work appropriate to casual weekend wear.

Available in sizes XS-XL, instore + online now.


And introducing our newest top for the season – the Rizzo long sleeve – the ultimate basic for the winter wardrobe. She’s based off our popular Rizzo summer top and dress, with the same slash neckline, but full length sleeve. The higher, slash neckline is perfect for wintery days as it keeps you warm and is the perfect detail for wearing underneath a cardigan, or cape. Available in plains or stripe.

Instore or online now in XS-XL.

Chelsea Cape for chilly days!

It’s about to get pretty chilly around these parts, but we’ve got you covered – pun intended!

Our Chelsea capes are the perfect companion for those cooler days as she’s made from quality New Zealand cashmere wool – making this a fabric that not only feels great on the skin to wear, but also keeps you warm and snuggly.

And we have to say, the design is not only practical – but pretty darn cute, too! With scalloped edging and pattered fabric lining in the hood of the cape and front, fold-back lapels – she’s not short of detail. When it comes to practicality, she’s definitely a ‘wearable’ cape – not like some where you feel restricted (robot arms be gone) – and definitely doesn’t add any bulk to your outfit with the clever tie around waist belt holding together all your winter layers, whilst still giving you all the room you need to flail your arms around with its free falling back.

And Chelsea is the perfect length, making her perfect to wear with skirts, dresses, jeans and pants.

We love Chelsea and she really is one of our favourite pieces to make during Winter.

This season we’ve included a colour to suit everyone – for the pastel lovers (musk), work wear appropriate (charcoal), every day wear (grey) and classic/timeless (red).

She is a one size catering to a broad shape range from size 6-20.
Available instore + online now.

Ripley Reversible Dresses!

Our tried and true Ripley Reversible dress is a crowd pleaser and an old favourite with all the made590 ladies. She is cute, feminine, but structured too and we are sure you will love wearing her all year round.

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Summer Stripe

The Ripley dress is a wonderful soft jersey dress with lots of stretch and just enough structure to flatter all shapes and sizes. We love the neckline, which on one side of the dress is a scoop neck, and if you spin the dress around is a V neck, so you can wear both looks easily and with confidence. The Ripley is great in the heat of summer, the soft cotton jersey we use for the dress is lovely and cool to wear. The cut of the skirt on the Ripley dress is a flared skirt, similar to a semi circle, which has excellent panels that flare out and give the skirt an interesting cut, especially in the striped fabrics. The Ripley dress has a soft bound neckline which is great to wear casually, but she can also be dressed up perfectly with some fun accessories like a belt, statement earrings or a sparkly necklace. We love the extended sleeve of the Ripley which sits at a point like a cap sleeve and creates a flattering angle on the arm. We love the softness of the cotton jersey which always looks good out of the wash and will be low care for day to day wear. She really is the most perfect jersey dress, with much more cute detailing than most, and an interesting panelled skirt which sits perfectly over your hips, even with layers.

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Black

Ripley works perfectly all year round as she is a style that you can layer with a long sleeve top underneath, or with a cardigan over the top. She also works well with stockings in winter, and she has the perfect double neckline options for work. Wear her one day with a V-neck and as a scoop neck later in the week. Throw on a stripe version for weekend wear, and accessorise with a metallic or brightly coloured belt. She looks fabulous with a jacket for work, or a coloured cardigan over stripes always hits the mark for a dressy casual look. We love the length of the Ripley as she is not too short to wear on her own, sitting at your knee (on most heights) and meaning she is completely appropriate for any occasion. We love her worn as-is, pin a little brooch on and wear some cute sandals, or dress her up with a pair of clogs and a leather belt. Ripley is so versatile you will surely be in love after the first wear!

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Nautical Stripe

Ripley is available in sizes XS (8), S (10), M (12), L (14), XL (16) and this round has three different colors/patterns.
