Known for her bold colours, vibrant prints and beautifully constructed pieces, Charlie Brown is one of Australia’s most loved designers and this season, Myer is exclusively launching the label’s SS15 range and we couldn’t be more excited.
Brown sets the summer scene for us with high octane glamour pieces, splashes of aqua, vintage inspired prints and floaty summer shapes. We sat down with the designer to chat about summer and her new collection ‘Beautiful Monster’ which she describes as “bold, forgiving and exciting.”
