puns & fables

me & oli are very excited to present our latest collection: puns&fables where, through lovingly drawn illustrations, we continue to create adventures upon a cloth.

as always, me & oli strive to bring together our love of textures, beauty, comfort, tenderness, the sense of excitement that the unknown brings and that flutter in the chest.

in puns&fables animals and beards are anthropomorphised to create an intoxicating world on delicious fabrics. a kind of modern day fairy tale through 3 prints:
‘the birds & the beards’: (a play on the idiomatic expression ‘the birds & the bees’) where birds lovingly roam and nestle in free flowing beards
‘a bird in the hand’: where the fox is voraciously happy, thank you, with the bird he has under his paws (he knows it’s worth more than the two in the bush!)
‘six pack’: where a pack of six wolves howl a chorus to the moon. intoxicated, no doubt!!!

these tales are told across a range of dresses, all with their own quirk in detail and all with an emphasis on beauty & comfort in wear.

puns&fables alludes to a tale, a message, a play on words, a simplicity…all with a bit of yearning & a good dose of tongue-in-cheek!

so step on in & join us on this adventure!
