Designer Lee Mathews takes an aesthete’s approach to dressing: each piece is seen as a wearable objet d’art that contributes to a larger wardrobe tableau. Natural textiles, such as linen and silk, form her canvases, and patchworks of prints serve as recurring motifs.
Founded in 2000, the designer’s eponymous label focuses on sublimely simple separates, sometimes animated by prints created in the brand's Australian-based studio. Other times, rich hues create a minimalist palette. Complemented by clean lines, the pieces exude a type of everyday elegance that practically serve the women wearing them.
