For June, I'm in Byron Bay to renovate our new NAGNATA design studio and warehouse. I’ve returned from 3 months in LA to design our SS’20 MOVEMENT 005 collection, while simultaneously working on the interiors of the new space. My moodboards are an amalgamation of classic NAGNATA references; retro sportswear and vintage knitted swimsuits, rib textures, riviera stripes and colour-blocked palettes, set against the backdrop of mid-century modernist architecture, inspired by my time California. As always, our collections are underpinned with a nod to 90’s style.
