Designer and co founder of Romance Was Born Anna Plunkett in their Sydney studio for our ‘SEE dedece’ series of photographic studies of creatives, emerging and established. Renowned for their eclectic and distinctive perspective Romance Was Born's collections are explosions of colour and energy. Their unique way of looking at the world has led to collaborations with pioneering Australian design icons such as Jenny Kee and Ken Done, cementing a strong presence in the national fashion landscape.
With a modern take on the Mid-Century spirit, the Minotti 2021 collection softens Rationalist and Brutalist architectural references with plush textiles and inviting leathers in sophisticated colours. An international set of designers including Marcio Kogan, GamFratesi, Nendo and Rodolfo Dordoni bring their own sensibilities and local references to this concept. The collection has a casual sophistication and features an interplay of gloss and matt effects with a variety of patterned and exquisite wood and stone used throughout. The outdoor collection seamlessly connects indoor spaces to the exterior through the same elegant and careful consideration of materials and details. 2021 introduces aluminium, steel, stone and cord into the outdoor collection.
