Sama Sama was started by Kimberly Lardner-Burke and Max Basler in early 2018, bringing out clothing with a focus on an understanding of movement, unrestricted feelings and with compassion for the body.
Most of our clothing is designed to be comfortable while maintaining style and using fabrics which are 100% natural. Sama Sama meaning “You’re Welcome” in Indonesian plays on creativity through details, which is characteristically carried through each design, specifically in its colourful embroidery. Although the brand offers gendered pieces, the majority of their designs overlap and criss-cross, making for a collection of elegant inclusivity.The brand’s core intention is to offer “clothing designed to allow movement, unrestricted and with compassion for the body”. Our SS18’19’ Collection draws on the use of vibrant colour hues, contrasted against more subtle tones.
