With its beginnings in 2001 on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Lee Mathews was created with the desire to make feminine, easy to wear clothing for women. Using noble fabrics such as silks, linen, cotton – often washed and overdyed, an aesthetic was established which has evolved over time to become the signature of each collection. It is easy to see that the designer draws from her graphic designer and illustrator background. Her prints have a fluent artistic feel to them. There is something about the earthy feel, the luxurious natural fibres, the feminine prints, the classy styling and cool elegance that sets it apart from the rest.
Natural, textured, with a pre-loved aesthetic and worn with ease, ‘Tilly’ the younger ‘sibling’ to the Lee Mathews Label has grown organically to have its own collection of wearable and endearing pieces. Using the delicate details of smocking and embroidery, it has a wholesome, youthful appeal.
Although both labels continue to develop, they never stray from the relaxed layers and natural fabrics used each season.
