Obus designer Kylie Zerbst’s beautifully saturated colour palette has been gathering followers with each passing season. Inspired by travel abroad, as well as local arts and crafts, Obus is one of those uncanny Melbourne labels that straddle the quirky and curious with professionalism and smarts. The Melbourne-based brand has an emphasis on prints, as well as colour and quality materials sourced from around the world. Obus has also got a particular southern trait that has humour sewn into the locally produced pieces – but never at the expense of good taste and quality.
