Established in 2000, Lee Mathews was born out of a simple desire to create timeless, feminine and effortless designs for the modern woman to use dynamically. Nearly twenty years later, the Australian womenswear label has eight stores located across Australia and a loyal community of women who turn to Mathews’ collections every season.
A former illustrator and art director for magazines such as Vogue and Vogue Living, Lee Mathews weaves art, architecture and Australia’s flora and fauna into her creative process to inform the colours, textures and patterns used. Every collection is designed, patterned and sampled in Sydney, with each piece thoughtfully crafted from high quality, natural textiles. Whether it’s Japanese cotton and linen, Chinese silk or Australian wool, these textiles are sought after by Lee Mathews for their durability, simplicity and comfort.
For each collection, Lee Mathews offers an edit of considered wardrobe essentials that span through crisp, relaxed separates to billowing dresses adorned with flourishes of delicate ruffles and statement hemlines. Lee Mathews designs are characterised by their muted palettes of white, black and sand, alongside playful prints, created exclusively in-house, including polka-dots, florals and checks.
With a penchant for eschewing seasons, a Lee Mathews piece will cement itself as an investment you’ll turn to time and time again. From fluid silk dresses, trans-seasonal coats, voluminous blouses to pared-back dresses, browse through THE ICONIC’s meticulously curated range of Lee Mathews.
