The launch of our Flinders Collection

Posted by Shaina Munro on

The wait is over! Welcoming our new Flinders Collection to your doorstep.

Part 1 of the collection boasts 9 beautiful pieces, perfect for spontaneous one-nighters and weekend beach jaunts. The pieces are crafted from 100% linen, and organic cotton, to ensure we limit our impact on the earth, and for a breezy piece to throw on after the beach. 

This collection has been in the making for the last 18 months, they represent the story behind Arlo & Olive, and i am so excited to share it with you all.

The inspiration behind the Flinders collection is creating a capsule wardrobe that you can take with you to the beach, to the bar, or even to the office. 
I absolutely love the beachy coastal look, but find it hard to style in my hometown of Melbourne. This collection is meant to bridge the gap between holiday wear, and everyday wear, creating pieces that are 
reminiscent of whimsical 70s-esque silhouettes and retrofied prints, yet grounded in wearability. 

Why the 'Flinders' Collection?

We are so inspired by Australia, everywhere you look there is beauty in nature.
We want each collection to be reminiscent of places i love around Australia.
The first place we want to pay tribute to is the Mornington Peninsula.
As you get to know the pieces, you can see that they are all named after towns down the Mornington Peninsula coast of Victoria. For example, we have the Hastings Dress, the Arthur('s seat) set, the Leo pant, the list goes on. 
I spent a lot of time there in my teen years, and its really where i got my love for the beach. 

Each piece is crafted by our beautiful Aussie owned factory in Bali, under ethical working conditions. We love our factory, and all the wonderful sustainability initiatives they have. To learn more about our sustainability journey click here.
Each piece of the Flinders Collection was designed with mother earth in mind. 
8 of the 9 pieces are made from 100% linen, which is easy to grow, and takes minimal resources to turn it into a fibre. 
The remaining one piece is made from OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton, which passes global testing to ensure the cotton is ethically and sustainably produced, with no chemicals. 

Lets get to know the collection a little bit better...
