Olive Grove

Colour inspiration is a strong foundation when developing a new range. Traditionally Raine & Humble has always worked with neutral tones as the base of our ranges. Loving the organic look of natural cotton and linen, these ivory and taupe tones have always been very prevalent base fabrics in our printed designs.

While in the past we have experimented with some brighter colours, my recent introduction to natural plant dying has influenced my current colour choices. The process has both fascinated and inspired me, I have loved working with this median. Our  Australian eucalyptus species have featured a lot in my experiments, using the leaves, bark and gum nuts to produce natural colours from deep reds to the bright yellows and every shade in between.

Milo and I have collected many nuts and leaves on our morning walks. This particular species  when modified with soda ash and iron, gave me a strong mustard colour and a beautiful rich olive green. These colours add a nice depth and warmth to the dusty pink colour that has dominated our last two ranges plus helps give more of an edge to our pretty floral prints.  

Rose Manor

While developing our new fragrance range, I was very drawn to the rose inspired fragrances. Over the last few months, I have been working with colour and eco dyes, 

Developing colours from nature. These workshops have been fascinating and have inspired my creativity and passion for science.

It is amazing the colours you can create with plants and kitchen scraps. I am loving the pinks hues created by avocado skins modified with copper, iron & ash.  Popular in the Black Swan Range we have carried our dusty pinks through to the new season.  
 

The denim colour (a favourite of mine) with some neutral grey tones, create the base for the range. Our pop of colour this season comes in the form of ruby red velvet.  The passionate colour and luxurious texture add romantic glamour to the Rose Range.
 

Black Swan Lake 

Creative inspiration can come from anywhere, and develops as time goes on, morphing to end up in a completely different direction. Swan Lake originated in the Nude trend that I love, reminiscent of ballet slippers. Swan lake, with the black swan were my attempt to bring the range to a moodier place. Now the only relation between the range, and ballet are the names!


Once you have some inspiration in your mind’s eye, you see it everywhere! We walk Milo around a lake in Melbourne, which is full of black swans. Spring was especially beautiful, due to all the fluffy cygnets. Even Milo loves the swans (although not for the same reasons).


In contrast, on my last visit to the UK, I spent a lot of time watching the stunning white swans in Kensington Gardens, admiring their pride and grace. As a result of starting down this path, I have become a little swan mad! I hope you enjoy our interpretation.
