It's not often that the natural world echos the palette of the urban landscape. But right now, in Autumn, I'm seeing the similarities. Eucalypt trees, both trunk and foliage, turn more silver at this time of year; all concrete and iron bars. And although in my part of the world we're not privy to the spectacular show that leaves can put on, the few that turn are infused with red brick, rusted steel and terracotta. The morning sky is often a muted smoky grey and as the sun sets, asphalt black.
I find myself reaching for similar hues when dressing myself on Autumn mornings. A geometric rust maxi skirt from Fabrik in silky rayon; a slightly thicker, warmer alternative to summer's cottons. And soft, drapey jersey in grey and black teamed with their licorice bamboo leggings. In a nod to nature's seasonal show I covet the delicate meadow skirt and the organic cotton henley tee, and for effortless dressing, the jersey dress for it's elegance and simplicity.
Fabrik uses locally sourced natural dyes to infuse their wares with such earthy tones and their Autumn/Winter collection is delicious to say the least.
