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.
