Campbell Charlotte is an emerging Melbourne-based label joining the voices fighting fast, disposable fashion. Not only are the pieces designed with sustainability in mind, they’re the kind of clothes you would put on once and never take off. Beautiful, contemporary silhouettes you want to wear over and over, avoiding laundry day or simply owning multiples of. Charlotte Campbell is the young designer and RMIT graduate behind the label, establishing the brand in 2015. A fine art graduate wielding thread and shears, using painterly techniques and a slow living mentality. What a dream boat!
Campbell Charlotte explores the relationship between printed textiles, the textures of natural fibres and minimal silhouettes. Combining design, printmaking and ethical sustainability, the line is delicate and considered from the production stage right down to its life spent with the wearer. Every piece starts its life made by hand in their Melbourne studio. Whether its a boxy, elegant top or a jazzy jumpsuit, each piece embraces the softening and creasing of fabric, allowing them to grow and live with you. CC aims to make a change in the way that clothing is perceived. That means out with the gross, short-lived. disposable trends and in with ethical sustainability and thoughtful design.
The Summer ’15 collection was almost too much, featuring digitally printed linen and soft, summer weight denim. We’re already preparing ourselves to embrace the label’s much anticipated new season for A/W 2016.
