Uncle Phuncle lovingly crafts mid-century outfits oozing vintage vibes
‘I’ll Never Find Another You’, ‘Fancy Dancer’ and ‘Do I Do’ – the tunes behind this label’s aptly named pieces hint at the retro glory awaiting you.
Fashion designer, seamstress and Uncle Phuncle creator Ashley Dyer, along with her beloved sewing machine Bernie, cut and twist swathes of vintage fabrics into elegant masterpieces from their Melbourne studio. The independent Australian label prides itself on its slow-fashion focus, only making small quantities of orders at a time to ensure no excess stock. Founded through a love of t-shirt culture and vintage fashion, Uncle Phuncle began life with a few hand-printed t-shirts and cotton skirts, but has since evolved to embrace both men’s and women’s clothing and accessories.
Inspired by mid-century design and music, the range sashays from bomber jackets in exclusive digitally printed cotton sateen deluxe to super soft cotton voile blouses featuring embroidered collars and matching bows, and classic box pleat skirts in mid-weight cotton gabardine. Frustrated by the fleeting trends of seasonal releases, Uncle Phuncle aims to craft long-wearing pieces that can be worn all year round.
