Welcome to the Secret Garden!
Our Winter '18 Collection is inspired by welcoming a change in the season… surrendering and embracing the chill in the morning air, the dew on the grass, and the shorter days. We love rugging our kids up in layers of comfortable, functional clothing, that suit our daily adventures from playgroup to preschool, park to primary school, supermarket to slippery slide. Wherever your day takes you and your kidlets, we design collections that suit the season, ages and stages of your children’s lives, so they can just get on with the important job of being kids.
There's heaps of great new gear, with amazing new fabrications, textures and yardages, and we’re launching some fresh new art and brand new shapes in this range.
Up top we've got Longsleeve T’s and LS Splice T’s, Crew Jumpers, Hoodies, 3 different Dresses (Sweater, Pinafore and an all new Longsleeve Splice Dress!), and the return of Jackets including a modified new shape for the girls with side pockets and new cuffs! We're excited, as this Winter is the first season our Jackets are now up offered up to 7-8yrs size.
For the bottoms, there's Harems, Slouchy Pants and Leggings and the return of snuggly lush brushed fleece Track Pants (and Hoodies) for boys and girls.
We’re also introducing a new Midi Skirt with scalloped chambray yoke detail and a delightful chrysanthemum floral voile.
The boys Winter colour palette is easy to wear. Think of masculine tones like navy, tans, paperbark, denim marle jersey, blue tie dye, chartreuse and pops of green, plus a strong flare of colour in the strobe light yardage.
For the girls, the season is very feminine with a bounty of fanciful florals that each tell a different story. From hibiscuses at twilight, to chrysanthemums on a pond, vintage rose tea party scenes, to Japanese peony prints and an abstract seed pod floral that was designed in-house. The colours range from berry tones to vintage marles in sage and blush, and navy and charcoal anchor it to the winter season.
Gold metallic lurex stripes appear on the sleeves of the new Dancing Robot LS Splice Dress...
... and metallic gold keyline details also a feature within the Japanese peony print on the Cross My Heart Pinafore Dress.
Quilted fabrics speak of winter, so take special note of the divine butterfly quilting on the Colour Me Happy Jacket, plus diamond quilting on the body panels, and teddy bear fur hood lining.
Shot at the beautiful Geelong Botanic Gardens, our kids lead us on an adventure through the open spaces and meandering pathways... The feeling was magical, like there could be fairy characters, elementals and wind sprites.
The colours of our garments pop against the verdant environment, with magical places to discover around each bend. Squeeze Me Tight LS T Shirt and peachy soft cotton elastane velveteen Sitting Pretty Harem Pant, tiptoes through the silvery green carpet of fairy gardens...
We played hide n seek, chasey, running races, searched for rare flowers and tried to sneak up on the cameraman. Ecstatic LS Splice T is a specially designed Oishi-m yardage; direct from our designer's imagination, a large scale tangle of vines and seed pods, in an enchanted garden, incorporating rainbow colours with crème keylines.
Pythagoras LS Splice T Shirt is an homage to triangles and all things geometrical. Made from stretchy cotton elastane jersey, with a scooped hem, dropped tail and round neck, this style has a natural grey marle base with an Oishi-m designed placement print on the front, and yellow spliced back panel.
Lounging Lizard LS T Shirt is one of our faves! Super soft and stretchy in our slimline fit, the body features a blue tie dye print that is reminiscent of dark night swimming pool reflections, just inviting you in for a dip. The stripey sleeves look great, with a matching royal blue envelope neck binding.
Especially for colder days, heavier weight french terry fabric appears in these two garments; Strobelight LS T Shirt and Dancefloor Antics Legging. Hit the dancefloor, the lights are flashing in stroboscopic fashion! We're ready for your best moves, and these pieces are made for moving!
A very special birthday celebration for one of our munchkins with a passionfruit sponge, hot cross buns, crowns and jewelled bindi's...
Bubble and Squeak Crew Jumper and Just Cruisin Slouchy Pant utilise a specially designed Oishi-m yardage, featuring tribalesque triangles and cone shapes. With a drop crotch, stretch waistband and side pockets, they're roomy enough to sprint your heart out, or.... just chill out ;)
Check out the fresh new 'subway tile' quilting pattern on the arms of the Paperbark Jacket, which complement the diamond patterned body. Our new Colour Me Happy Jacket is very special, made from 'STOF of France' fabric.
Heavier weight french terry fabric has been used in the Bewdiful LS T Shirt, to keep lil' ones warm and cosy. The artwork features large blooming hibiscus flowers and foliage in shades of pink, berry and sage green on a midnight blue base. Berrylicious burgundy sleeves with navy jacquard spots are the perfect accompaniment to the floral print, and our practical envelope neck has contrast mallow pink neck binding.
This fabric is also available in the matching Power Flower Legging, as seen above.
Our Lime Spider Hoodie is deal for everyday wear, being a super snuggly 340gm heavy weight brush fleece. The green raglan sleeves will liven up your munchkin's wardrobe, and we love the specialty Japanese shibori printed binding.
In her own world in the dappled afternoon light, Crafternoon Crew Jumper and Lushus Track Pant climbed the magic faraway tree. A delightful array of floral bouquets in rose pink, green, mustard and blue, it perfectly matches the rose pink trackies with a deep violet bottom panel.
Oh, to tap into a baby's mind, what could he be thinking of this magical green carpet? Our Outback Horizon LS T Shirt is an easy choice for everyday wear, with a combo of wide and narrow stripes in our slimline fitted envelope neck tee. Pair it with the Pete Repeat Harem Pant for all day bubba comfort (or for big kids who run and climb trees, they'll camouflage right into nature!)
Surrounded by the sweet scents and beauty of flowering cherry trees, bluebells, day lillies and fuschia flowers, we hope you can feel the beauty of this special place in these images... a place where imaginations and children are free to explore the secret garden.
