ABOUT THE BRAND
The idea for MALUNE began many moons ago in a little idyllic beachside resort in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, inspired by summer islands (especially Hawaii and Tahiti), white beaches, and other features of natural beauty in far-off places.
MALUNE is designed in-house at the BERLIN head studio and produced in India and Greek. We collaborate with family-owned factories and makers that align with our values of transparency, sustainability, and our ethical journey.
Our designs capture the feelings of traveling through time and space, with all the different facets of flora and fauna – and translate them into a free-spirited esthetic. From breezy kimonos and dresses, we offer the colorful abundance of happiness you need to feel at ease. Malune is known for its beautiful arty mixture of prints; natural, soft and feel-good textures; and cutting-edge silhouettes that are comfortable and easy to wear.
