Whimsical prints and dad designs – Australian label Dougal celebrates the best of Down Under
A dad-and-daughter collaboration inspired by the wonder and nostalgia of our great southern land, Dougal’s unique womenswear line oozes a laid back, larrikin vibe. The small lifestyle brand is the effort of Paris-educated textile designer Arabella Ramsay and her father, acclaimed illustrator Dougal Ramsay, who aim to combine art and fashion with a quirky and native twist.
Inspired by quintessential Australia and the family’s lifetime of living between the bush and the beach, the bespoke prints celebrate Australian nature and our distinctive way of life – in a very, very cool way. From the Rosella Tee Dress to the Aussie Crustacean Shorts, the colourful prints add a bit of Australiana to your sleeve using no digital imagery, just simple true-blue pencil on print.
Deadset serious about quality, the label designs and produces everything locally using cotton, linens and silk – so you can feel comfortable whilst enjoying your typical weekend spent lazing around with mates or taking a trip to the beach. If you can’t get enough of the cute designs, Dougal also produces homewares, tote bags, kids and mens fashion, art… and even tea towels!
