Blue Mangopare - bucket hat
Inspired by garments we saw in the early 80s a which was a huge revival of contemporary Māori print, also layered with elements of the 90s such as the classic bucket hat. We wanted to create a bold fashion range that expressed the above nostalgia!
Kowhaiwhai patterns themselves involve symmetry, translation and rotation. The elements of Kowhaiwhai design found in the Wharenui make each one interesting and unique.
In our particular print we have various patterns a main theme we looked at was the Mangopare (Hammerhead shark) which represents strength, leadership and determination we layered this as a multi splatter print with each piece being slightly unique!
