The Northern Hemisphere may be wrapped up snug in heavy winter coats, woollen scarves and retro knitted sweaters, but here in the South, Melbourne label Gorman are celebrating the summer with a colourful, fun-filled collaboration. Teaming up with Sydney-based designer, Rachel Castle, the High Summer capsule range features playfully printed singlets, breezy linen skirts, vibrant beach towels, protective sun hats and practical tote bags. Child-like doodles join Castle's signature use of cut-out lettering to print naively onto the products, spelling out cute phrases such as, “ do the cha cha” and “put the love in the coconut”. It's super sweet and almost certainly guaranteed to put a smile on your face, regardless of which hemisphere you reside in.
