Our new range is for all the spring chickens...
Come along as we share with you our Oishi-m Spring '17 Collection. With new colourways of our most recent Oishi-m styles, like Slouchy Pants, a Super Skinny Jean, the Pullover and Pinafore Dress, there's even a new Splice T Shirt shape! Hoodies are now available up to size 7-8yrs, and you can also outfit your munchkins in our latest short and longsleeve T's, T Dress, Sweater Dress, Shorts, Leggings, Crew Jumpers and Harems Pants. Please note a girls Hoodie and boys Harem Pant will be available at a slightly later date, so stay tuned for updates.
The winter chill will soon make way to sunnier days, and we can shed our coats and come out of hibernation. We celebrate the colours and vibrancy of blossoming nature at this time of year, and hope you feel inspired to enjoy the outdoors with the kids as much as we do...
Imagine a play space amongst nature where kids can explore just like the free range chooks who call this oasis their backyard... under the dappled light of the ghost gums above, their imaginations were inspired by magical gardens decorated with accoutrements, mobiles and natural fancies that twinkled bright.
Set in our friend's amazing backyard, the Oishi-m munchkins were let loose to play with whatever took their fancy. From fairy gardens to potion-making, felted dinosaur lands to tea-sets, the varied nature-play stations appealed to different personalities, and it's something you could do at home too.
The Yoko Pinafore Dress is designed and made in Australia, made from stretch reverse indigo denim with stunning Asian-inspired linen cotton floral. Gold metallic detail throughout the printed godet panels (inverted pleats at the back) will capture your heart and our pinny is incredible on all ages, from 3-6mths old to the largest size in 7-8yrs. Layer it up for spring, or pare back the layers in sunnier climates. Taking the lead is Creamy Soda Sweater Dress and Spring Has Sprung Legging...
...she knew where to find the jackpot; a clutch of freshly laid eggs to collect in the basket, held by lil' blondie in our very special Pico Pico SS T Shirt with fancy picot trim sleeves and pastel bloom body fabric, shown in detail below...
The look of pure joy! Nothing is better than these moments in life, witnessing our children's happy discoveries. The Yoko Pinafore Dress has front pockets for storing treasures, but please baby girl, don't go stashing the eggs in there!
We're stoked to introduce our new Splice T Shirt shape. Crystal Castle SS Splice T Shirt and Peacock SS Splice T Shirt (below) are new loose-fitting fashion T's; a wider, longer more relaxed silhouette - great for layering and good for growth, with splice fabric interest panel on the back and a low scoop back hem for a quirky, cool look.
The peacock digital print art and watercolour tones are dreamy and exquisite. One sleeve matches the body fabric and the other is a soft contrast in pastel green and lilac stretch yarndye stripes. Matching back to the Rainbow Slouchy Pants, this is one of our fave looks.
The backyard bungalow, chook shed and cubby are all made from reclaimed timber - and this 2 storey cubby was a hit with all the kids, housing a sandpit underneath. Over The Top Pullover and Alchemy Legging jumped to it; with diggers, dump trucks and playmates it was the perfect day!
A vintage suitcase filled with tea sets and treasures invited the children to create and play. Every piece of Spring '17 is comfy and practical to suit all types of play.
...like homemade cinnamon playdough smelled good enough to eat, adorned with glass jewels and beads to create 'cakes and pies'. Hidden Gems Crew Jumper watches on as Mindful T Dress gets creative, and Crystal Castle SS Splice T Shirt gets ready to sneak a bite!
We are loving the VIP Super Skinny Jean with contrast Japanese Shibori printed fabric pocket details. The dark navy blue colour with green fabric is a match made in heaven, and above is proof of their stretch and flexibility, as Illusion SS T Shirt scales the steep steep slide to the cubby above.
Made in Melbourne, we've kept the home fires burning and your munchkin toasty warm in the thick brushed fleece Hearth Hoodie. This is the first time we're offering bigger sizes, and we've evolved the style to be more grown up to suit kids up to size 7-8yrs by removing the Doo Doo Pickles from the front. Please note there will be a girls hoodie available shortly - stay tuned!
This hoodie seriously goes with anything, from pants to shorts, depending on the change in the weather. It's always a good idea to have a cosy jumper ready to wear!
Peacing out with Pico Pico SS T Shirt.
Garden beds full of succulents and spiky plants setting the scene for our latest collection. Our design team got the pens and markers out to draw the crystals that adorn this tee, with jestered sleeves in charcoal grey marle and ochre, and spliced back detail in minty aqua, we're loving this great new tee shape.
What started out as a careful game of filling the barrow full of lentils...
...soon gave way to temptation! Lentil as anything - upending the wheelbarrow-ful of lentils for the chooks to peck at, in our Spring Has Sprung Legging and Creamy Soda Sweater Dress! Beautiful fabrics and details in the dress include an effervescent pink marle front and raspberry bud back, with violet striped stash pockets, neck and hem bands. The lilac marle stripe sleeves are gorgeous, and the inset side panels feature bursting blossoms.
Sublime... Petals of every colour and scent were in abundance, with this lil' cherub stopping to smell each bloom. Special moments captured on a sunny afternoon, wearing the Yoko Pinafore Dress.
A picture of perfection - a coo-worthy image of bub in the sunshine, under the dappled light in his Sabre Tooth Crew Jumper and Alchemy Legging. Featuring an Oishi-m designed artwork, inspired by crystal caves with stalagmites and stalagtites, this black repeat pattern works a treat on the blue shadow base fabric, and is punctuated with bright orange microstripe cuffs and a minty Tummy Toastie.
