BOLD BRICKS IN FASHION
THE brickies of Australia will be excited to learn fashionista Camilla Franks – the kaftan queen – has teamed up with Austral Bricks to create a collection of vibrantly coloured blocks.
The bold primary colours of the latest Austral Bricks collection draw upon the vibrant colours and lush textures of Mexico. Named From Mexico City to
Oaxaca, the beautiful collection was designed in collaboration with the Australian fashion icon, and inspired by her recent travels through Central America.
“Mexico City is one of the world’s largest, but alongside the noise and energy, you have a civilisation that goes back millennia,” Camilla said.
The collection draws upon the beauty she observed in Mexico – the colonial grandeur and cobbled streets of Mexico City, the earthy tones of the Teotihuacan pyramids and Aztec treasures, the vivid symbolism of Frida Kahlo’s artworks, and the Spanishinfused culture of Coyoacan and Oaxaca.
“With Camilla’s eye for detail and distinctive design sensibility, we’ve created a dynamic new collection that really captures the vibrant colours and textures of Mexico, Mexico,” Brickworks Building Products general marketing manager Brett Ward said.
“The lush colours are wellsuited to the Australian culture, climate and environment.
“We’re looking forward to seeing how Australian architects, designers and builders put the range to use in their new architectural projects.”
The collection is infused with Camilla’s fashion-forward design sense, and the colours are designed to be long-lasting and adaptable for a range of contemporary projects.
The vivid Azure and Aubergine hues are balanced by the warm Sol, while Flame and Rosado bring a touch of vibrancy to the collection.
