The Best of Australian Design... Possum & Banjo

Rolled up sleeves, laid-back shorts, and breathable fabrics like natural linen go hand in hand with an Aussie summer like passionfruit goes with pavlova! Leanne from Possum & Banjo created her children’s collection with the aim of capturing the “essence of the relaxed Australian lifestyle”. Today I’d like to share some beautiful new snaps from her Summer 2012/13 collection.

This season, Possum & Banjo have chosen to work with cool and comfortable retro cottons, vintage voiles and natural linen textiles. The focus is on earthy naturals, fresh whites and fun vibrant colours inspired by retro and vintage eras.

Leanne explains, “With temperatures warming up, soft breathable linen is a great choice for dressing kids casual and comfortably, yet stylish and cool in the warm Summer months. Linen thread is 100% natural fabric woven from the flax plant; No part of the plant is wasted during production as the oil, straw and seeds are widely used, making it a naturally sustainable eco-friendly fabric.”
