Frank and Dollys
The Summer 'Where We've Been' is a collaborative collection by Frank and Dollys with Australian artist Andrea Shaw. The collection has been made in a one-off, limited edition print and won't be recut. Small, sustainable and local - just the way we like it!
The Andrea shirt is that perfect, playful piece for pairing with your favourite denim, knotting over dresses or wearing open at the beach. Made from 100% cotton (read more about the fab supply chain below), it features shell buttons, button-up sleeves and a tailored collar.
If you want a more fitted look, we suggest sizing down.

More about Frank & Dollys
As with all of our labels, Frank and Dollys have a beautiful story. Started by the ever-fabulous Joel and Rachel Cooper, currently based in the Byron hinterland, the couple, 3 children in tow, have travelled the world, sitting and creating with their makers. They design slowly, consciously and sell transparently.
They create timeless, colourful prints and versatile designs, meaning it's no surprise they've developed an incredibly loyal following over the years.
Joel and Rachel believe that everyone that touches a Frank and Dollys garment should be empowered in some way from their beautiful and inspiring customers to small, independent fabric makers and dyers. The current collection, beyond the unique artwork, tells a beautiful story of a local supply chain and supporting small growers and tailors. While the cotton farm they've sourced their cotton directly from isn't yet certified organic (wait for it!), it is close to their print house, which does all of the weaving, dying and printing in one place. From there, their tailors (who they found through a chance meeting while travelling through Ubud one day), also based nearby, sew the beautiful pieces. Such a local supply chain, especially when working with cotton, is highly unusual, and has numerous wonderful impacts - it supports small, allows for full traceability and transparency, and reduces the carbon footprint of the garment by reducing travel distances. (Did you know, cotton is often grown in one location, send to another continent for processing and weaving, sent to yet another continent for sewing and then onto its retail destinations?!).
We hope you love this collection as much as we do - it's an honour to have Frank and Dollys back at Slowclothes. xx
