Coco & Max was established in Melbourne 2015, by Tessa Arnold (AUS) womenswear, and Andrew Pope (UK) menswear. With over 15 years designing in the clubwear industry, their vision is to create a premium streetwear brand that pushes the boundaries aesthetically utilising sustainable local manufacturing.
Graduating from RMIT Melbourne, and Royal College of Arts London, Coco and Max garments are well constructed, using the best quality sports fabrics with high craftsmanship and sharp attention to detail. They have a focus on experimenting with fusions of futuristic and retro sportswear designs, reinforcing the importance of originality and artistic self expression. With innovative approaches to pattern cutting, and a strong emphasis on their in-house graphic prints - Coco's womenswear plays with vibrant neon pop, against Max's menswear in monochromatic brutalist greys.
Coco & Max are aware of the carbon footprints left on this planet, so every collection is manufactured ethically in the heart of Melbourne, to support slow fashion and fair local trade.
“We want to encourage people to buy great quality pieces designed to last through every season, and believe that we should all embrace and be proud to be different, and express this through our clothing.
Every garment I design is to have multiple functionality, keeping up to date with the speed of living. All garments are made out of top notch sports fabric, to be worn from dawn till disco. So wether you're going for a 10k run, chasing your 2 year old around, or back from a festival, you'll radiate standing out in comfort and style”
