Beautiful interview in The Weekly Review.
Support your local labels leading the slow charge towards a better, more sustainable industry.
“Look at the rise in popularity of our local beer industry – imagine if that could happen in the fashion world too,” muses Tessa Arnold, designer and owner of local label, Coco & Max.
“Melbourne is a growing city full of fast-fashion giants, but that’s strengthening our point of difference,” says Tessa. “People love finding out where, how and who makes their clothes.”
Inspired by Where the wild things are, FUTURE WILD 17 explores futuristic fusions of nature prints on bold and dynamic cuts. Dive into a jungle of relaxed retro looks and be dazzled by vibrant colours and a sea of grey hues.
All garments are designed to give you functional comfort and are made out of top quality threads. Organic cottons to breathe and high tech sport fabrics for any sort of action. The collection is manufactured entirely in Melbourne, reinforcing the importance of slow fashion, originality and self expression.
Been working hard in the studio and finally finished last round of the latest MAX Collection! Dripard hoody and track pants back in stock, last scale sets and also last of the angry Skull and Cross Gnomes!
Everything we make is Limited Edition - never repeated - so that's it after this drop! Enjoy X
