We are excited to announce the arrival of Backwater - an Auckland-based label made by sisters April and Frances Haszard. With artistic talent running strong throughout the family genes, April has been working in fashion for many years while Frances has a fine arts background, and has illustrated all of the prints in this collection. Backwater's Spring Summer 2015 collection holds emphasis on unisex sportswear shapes but with high-fashion sensitivities. There is also a hands-on approach to their collection, with all of the screen printing done inside their studio and the signature marble print being produced by hand. Backwater is now available at The Shelter.
