TWO CREATIVE MINDS AND LIFELONG FRIENDS, MELVIN TANAYA AND LYNA TY, HAVE BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY SINCE THE DEBUT OF THEIR FIRST COLLECTION IN 2010. “THE CLOTHES ARE UNIQUE, NOT ONLY TO ANYTHING I’VE SEEN IN AUSTRALIA, BUT QUITE FRANKLY, ANYTHING I’VE SEEN IN THE WORLD,” ARE THE WORDS NICK WOOSTER USED TO DESCRIBE THEIR WORK, A MENSWEAR AUTHORITY WITH OVER 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE WITHIN THE LUXURY FASHION INDUSTRY. LIKE EACH GARMENT THEY CREATE, THE NAME OF THE BRAND IS BASED AROUND CONSTANT CONCEPTUAL EXPRESSION – BREAKING THROUGH THE PRESSURE OF THE STATUS QUO.

 

THEIR FOCUS ON CURATED FABRIC CHOICE AND DEVELOPMENT IS THE ESSENTIAL FIRST STEP IN THE COLLABORATIVE DESIGN PROCESS. DAYS are spent WALKING THROUGH FABRIC MILLS, SAMPLING AND EXAMINING THE TEXTURE, WEIGHT, TOUCH, AND DRAPE CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH material. LIKE MUSICIANS OR ARTISTS, MELVIN AND LYNA POUR THEIR HEART AND SOUL INTO EACH CREATION, EXPRESSING A UNIQUE POINT OF VIEW THROUGH LABOUR AND DEDICATION. THE WORK VERGES ON THE SUBVERSIVE YET REMAINS APPROACHABLE, NEVER BEING SWAYED OR DICTATED BY SPECIFIC TRENDS, REVEALING AN HONESTY in THE END PRODUCT THAT ENCAPSULATES THEIR IDEA OF BEAUTY.
