Australia’s Song for the Mute presents an introspective Spring/Summer 2020 range, with creative director Lyna Ty taking stylistic cues from her journey to her partner’s hometown of Ksar Hellal in Tunisia. This hometown — or “le bled” (بلاد) in Arabic — permeates the ethos of the new collection, with lush textiles and personal references appearing throughout.

Shot in a local restaurant situated within Sydney’s most diverse dining district, the seasonal editorial highlights Song for the Mute’s pattern-rich SS20 designs. Earth tones inform the woven jackets, shirts and accessories, yielding a contemporary silhouette thanks to various sporty accents and cropped proportions. 35mm photographs taken by Ty on her trip appear as digital prints on various outerwear pieces, totes and bandanas, while a seasonal le bled print — handwritten by Ty’s father-in-law — appears on other items, including the rear of an oversized blazer. Other thoughtful touches include a revamped approach to SFTM’s signature woven cord keychain, which now sports hand-dipped brass hardware and a Tunisian-made keyring.

The Spring/Summer 2020 items arrive on Song for the Mute’s web store April 14.
