Coastal elegance.

When it comes to clothing reflective of Australian lifestyle, one can’t go past blinding images of budgie smugglers and boardshorts. But we wouldn’t post about that now, would we?

Australian fashion label, Kira Pizzingrilli, pays homage to its roots on the Central Coast of NSW with designs we’d actually wear. 

The label’s newest collection for Spring/Summer, Unearth, plays on Australian themes, with eucalyptus-printed dresses and swimsuits emulating ’90s beach styles.

The collection pays homage to the raw beauty of our landscape, blending pastel tones of baby pink and lilac, with splashes of coral among classic pieces in black and white.

Mixing feminine prints with a modern aesthetic, the eponymous label produces garments that are functional for day and night wear. 

The pieces challenge classic tailoring, resulting in refreshingly altered feminine silhouettes. 

Each print is original and exclusive to the label, with all garments made locally.
