It all started back in 2012, when designer Kat Morley decided to translate her love for all things vibrant and bright into a lifestyle line of clothing and accessories known as Dreams in Colour. A Bondi girl at heart, she’s been creating pieces that cater to the needs of beach bums and summer season aficionados down under ever since.
Lighthearted, vivid, and feminine are the words that can be used to describe the general aesthetic of the label, which prides itself in offering locally made products with a handcrafted aspect to them. What it all boils down to is a wide range of bright and sunny hues—varying shades of pink, blue, green, and yellow, among many others—mixed in with bold nature-inspired prints that are reflective of Kat’s craft and artistry and are heavily influenced by her interests and the environment she grew up in.
It’s a guarantee that the quintessential summer-loving fashionista would instantly fall in love with Dream in Colour’s array of beach necessities, with major motifs ranging from abstract watercolors to all things tropical and floral. This includes their core line of throws and cover-ups that make use of light fabrics, highlighting relaxed, flowing silhouettes. Going beyond those are the brand’s sarongs and handbags that also feature vibrant patterns in juicy hues.
There’s no denying that Dream in Colour pieces speak to the label’s effortlessly fun-loving creative philosophy combined with a touch of flirty flair. The brand’s signature sophisticated boho feel captivates women who are all about sass and class whenever they have sun, sand, and sea within their reach, as well as those wishing to give an upbeat twist to an overcast day in the city.
Markets: Paddington - Saturday; Bondi - Sunday
