MARCS X NELL OLIVER
This season, we teamed up with talented Australian graphic artist Nell Oliver to create an exclusive nature inspired collection. Exploring two sides of nature with two exclusive hand drawn prints, this is a collection not to be missed. Whether you’re ready for the wild side, or prefer to be the quiet observer, taking in nature’s beauty at pace, we have you covered.
We sat down with Nell to talk about the collaboration and all things design and art!
Nell Oliver is an Australian textile and graphic artist with a talented eye for pattern and detail. With a keen interest in design, Nell moved from Cairns to Sydney to study Fashion and Textiles at the University of Technology Sydney. After a year of studies she found her passion in the area of textile and surface design, pursuing this with further studies at Melbourne’s RMIT.
After graduating university, Nell made her biggest move, all the way to NYC to make her mark in the textile world. She became part of the in house textile design team at Diane von Furstenberg, while also selling designs to Victoria’s Secret, J Crew and Ralph Lauren. Now settled down and living in Byron Bay with her husband and three sons, she continues to exercise her passion for design, freelancing for some amazing projects.
Inspired by all things pattern, Nell loves to mix up her style and did exactly that with our MARCS collection!
“I’ve thrown everything in there” Nell explained “ It’s a fun mix of Organic and nature inspired hand drawn illustrations, delicate and bold, watercolours and photographic elements”
All layered up in a mix of collage and pattern, Nell creates a play on positive and negative spaces with the two prints.
“The designs have a fun, quirky energy running through them, which reflects MARCS and their unique approach to design”
