MYER: What is it about the Sportscraft brand that you are drawn to?
Naomi Watts: Sportscraft is a truly iconic Australian brand with so much history so its one that I’m really proud to be working with. Their relaxed, modern designs are very wearable so they are easily integrated into my everyday wardrobe – either on set, hanging out at the beach or having fun with my boys.
M: What did you enjoy most about the designing process for Nomad?
NW: I was excited to be asked to be creatively involved in this collection after working with Sportscraft as a Brand Ambassador for the last couple of years. I love fashion so working with Sportscraft at this level with a new adventure for me and I loved the creative process. I enjoyed thinking about different fabrics, shapes and the details for this collection like the embroidery.
M: What is your favourite piece in the collection?
NW: I love the white linen dress, so comfortable and effortless, a must have for any wardrobe. The fabric is perfect for an Australian summer and it was designed with this in mind.
M: Tell us about the inspiration behind the collection:
NW: It’s really inspired by summer. I love white as its usually a sign that summer is here. It works really well on beach days and is just as stylish at night for parties. I chose fabrics like silk and linen because they keep you cool on long summer days. I have also focused on easy pieces that travel well and don’t need much accessorising or styling.
M: What is your favourite Australian summer destination and why?
NW: My mum’s beach house at Byron Bay or Sydney’s beaches with family and friends – enjoying the amazing food and produce Australia has to offer.
M: What are you favourite summer essentials?
NW: A great hat, book, sunglasses, comfortable sandals, an easy dress, shorts, swimsuit, a great cover up and sunscreen!
M: If you could pack three items from this collection for your next summer holiday, what items would you pack?
NW: The sandals, the white shorts and the white linen dress. They are perfect for long walks, shopping and the beach.
M: How would you describe the collection in one sentence?
NW: This collection epitomises summer and is effortlessly chic.
