OPHELIA MIKKELSON FOR GOOD STUDIOS
This whimsical imagery caught on film by the multi-talented Ophelia Mikkelson, for sustainable label Good Studios, is a delight. Mikkelson evokes a sense of simple beauty working playfully with the natural environment of a lush New Zealand countryside, as well as classical sculptural forms, to highlight the timeless and natural origins that continue to be the driving force behind each Good Studios collection.
Good Studios was founded in 2012 by Adelaide - based production designer and stylist, Anny Duff. It is a sustainable clothing and homewares label championing hemp fabrics and exploring contemporary design:
“I WAS WORKING IN FILM AND TELEVISION AS AN ART DIRECTOR AND HAD A REAL DESIRE TO BUILD SOMETHING OF MY OWN THAT I COULD BE PRECIOUS ABOUT. I GREW UP ON AN ORGANIC FARM MY PARENTS LOVINGLY BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP SO I REALLY WANTED TO RECONNECT WITH MY SUSTAINABLE UPBRINGING. SO MUCH OF MY WORK AS AN ART DIRECTOR IS SOURCING AND BRINGING GOOD AESTHETIC COMPONENTS TOGETHER, GOOD STUDIOS WAS BORN FROM THE DRIVE TO GIVE BACK AND OFFER SOMETHING THAT COULD BE AN ALTERNATIVE FOR CONSCIENTIOUS AND LIKE-MINDED CUSTOMERS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR ETHICAL CLOTHING THAT DOESN’T COMPROMISE ON GOOD DESIGN.” - Good Studios, ANNY DUFF

Caroline Walls x The UNDONE launch a series of exclusive prints to celebrate the female form.
Melbourne based artist Caroline Walls has produced a series of limited edition prints available exclusively and in collaboration with The UNDONE, focusing on the female form.
The collaboration came about through a shared appreciation for minimalism, a streamlined colour palette and to desire to celebrate women.
Walls, through her work is interested in creating a dialogue “around the empowerment of women and the continued pursuit for equality – I want my works to feel bold, unapologetic and proud” The UNDONE innately connects with Caroline’s desire to empower women making it the ideal partnership via both ethos and aesthetic.
The four-piece series are prints of charcoal drawings produced on fine art paper by Walls. Each piece is a statement work on its own or can be coupled together to create a broader narrative
With The UNDONE celebrating its first anniversary in July the store will continue to expand its offering with the belief that when you enjoy a minimal aesthetic it doesn’t just stop with what you wear, it extends to all areas of your life.
The Limited-edition Prints make up a series of four exclusive works retailing at $120.00 per print, first release will be limited to 25 of each print.
