E Nolan is making love tees for all

When did you launch E Nolan and what is the label’s ethos?

I launched E Nolan in December 2017 at Melbourne’s iconic luxury boutique Le Louvre, with a debut collection of t-shirts derived from my graduate collection. Anchored by a long-standing necessity to blur dress codes and add personal style to uniforms, I hope to give a comfortable alternative, to see the t-shirts anywhere from desk jobs to disco dancing. 

What clothing do you create under the E Nolan name?

Women’s embroidery motif t-shirts. Next month, E Nolan is releasing women’s ready-to-wear suiting in various luxury fabrication and androgynous tailored cuts season-to-season. The Valentine’s Day special, ‘Love Loves to Love Love’ is a collection of t-shirts to break your heart and mend it all over againThe collection consists of six t-shirt designs called ‘Heartbreak Blows’, ‘Every Tom Dick & Harry’, ’A British Blowy’, ‘3 Blows to the Heart’, ‘Draw Me Like One of Your French Flies’ and ‘Fresh Cock’. The t-shirts have between 95,000 and 275,000 stitches per motif and are made with love in Melbourne. 

What inspired this Valentine’s Day collection?

I’m always inspired by love but it was heartbreak that kept me up creating. In the midst of it, there’s always stifling amounts of self-doubt, reset buttons and relearning basic routines and rituals. Heartbreak never gets easier but you do get better at navigating through it. 

If I’m keen on your work, where can I find you and how can I make a purchase?

Visit www.enolan.com.au and follow @enolanmelbourne for suiting, collection updates and blowfly porn. 

E Nolan latest collection ‘Love Loves to Love Love’ is available online for Valentine’s Day. Head to their website for more information.
