Founded in 2014 by Macayla Chapman and Natalie Knoll, Australian resort wear label Bird & Knoll creates clothes that are feminine, luxurious, and embrace the nonchalant ease inherent to its founder’s coastal lifestyle.
Initially, since launching with a highly curated collection of silk-cashmere scarves, Chapman and Knoll quickly pivoted their design perspective towards women’s ready-to-wear; designing with the beach or a tropical resort in mind.
Favouring saturated colours merchandised alongside playful, painterly patterns, the design duo developed a signature language, defined by a lustful wanderlust and effortless ease.
Women’s maxi dresses and separates are shaped to sophisticated silhouettes from the highest quality cottons, linens and silks exuding a meditative, relaxed femininity.
Sustainability and business transparency are a focus for the label, choosing to release in-depth information about the factories used to create each seasonal release. Both cotton and silk factories have multiple global certifications for ethical and sustainable practices. Circularity is also a priority for the label having partnered with Airrobe, a conscious company that facilitates the resale of pre-loved clothing.
Expect timeless wardrobe pieces that you’ll fall in love with, and wear on repeat year after year. Note the bestselling Donatella Dress; the epitome of the brand’s relaxed approach to seasonless style.
