Frequent collaborators with Australian artists, Verner collections are highly conceptual, often poking and prodding at perceived notions of Australianness via a nuanced interplay between surface appearance and structural design. Like flocks of Melburnians fleeing their homes after isolation for to amass on nature strips across the city, entitled “Exterior Motives” this new Verner collection (Holiday 20/21) is replete with vivid patterns, high-contrast photographic prints, and hand-drawn imagery alluding to a yearning for spiritual truths.
Verner have said that the “Exterior Motives” collection was designed with the “imagined glow of a post-lockdown summer in mind, inspired by a desire for change and a yearning for freedom.” No single piece in the collection expresses the intense yearning for movement and social contact more so than the Verner House in Sunshine Oversized Shirt. This loose-fitting, boxy fit, short sleeve shirt features a bright, all-over photographic collage print that brings together images of the sky, a welcome mat, soaring seagulls, a box of Turkish delight, a pedestal fan, a rose bush, the tiled roof of a house, and manicured hedges. Constructed from light cotton poplin, this shirt also features a shirt hem with side split, open collar, front button closure, and subtle contrast collar & sleeves.
Made from 100% cotton.
