It's no secret that the best things in life are made with honest intentions. And as for Australian brand Helen Kaminski, this is an ethos that underpins exactly what the brand does and where its story starts.

Best known for its signature raffia hats and no stranger to our Australian sun; it was in 1983 that founder, Helen Kaminski handcrafted her first hat – simply for her children to wear and with no one else in mind. Now in true testament to the brand's pioneering legacy in sustainability, tradition and timeless beauty; we welcome the post-pandemic dream that is Helen Kaminski with Wild Meadow for Spring Summer 2021.

Ever so elegantly balancing the inspirations of nature and vibrant hues with optimism and calm, Helen Kaminski's Wild Meadow ushers in new hope and perspective with a collection that's blissful and nostalgic; transporting us to fields of open space and the transcendence of sun-kissed summer.

The collection takes on the classics, reimagined like never before. Embracing the return of some of the brands most iconic and signature styles, one is invited to daydream. A vibrant abundance of colour in Peony pink, Cornflower blue's, Rose, Eclipse Melange and Nougat welcome in the new spring summer collection. A memoir to romance and adventure tells its story through the sweeping wide brimmed hat in Odetta and the vintage-inspired braided brim boater in Gigi and Selina.

Continuing its driving mission in sustainability and preserving traditional techniques, Helen Kaminski's Wild Meadow explores new heights in renewable resources and community. A long-standing pillar and central to the brands ethos; the collection sees the brand working alongside its artisans and the women of remote villages in Sri Lanka, handcrafting each piece in the sustainably-sourced and harvested Madagascan raffia.
