Nineteen//46

Designer: Bronwyn Eichbaum

Bronwyn is a dreamer and a doer, Nineteen//46 is steeped in the heritage of quality knitwear brand Silverdale. A loyal family company born in 1946 when Ted and Daisy’s sons, the Antcliff brothers, returned from war and never looked back. A cunning culmination of craftsmanship and possibility.

Nineteen//46 was not just a year. It was the year. The year men returned from war and women struggled to return to how things were. In fact they didn’t. They were now fighters, survivors, and liberators. They held families together, stepped up to roles they had never had and realised they were capable of doing anything. It was a year that influenced a century.

Beautifully understated knitwear that celebrates liberation and gives you the freedom to be yourself. No dictatorship, no confinement. Each piece is designed to compliment your unique style, naturally fit your body and effortlessly enhance who you already are. Every garment only finds its full potential once united with its owner.

Obi Black

Designer: Jon Dyball
Jon Dyball joined the Obi Design Team 2010 and comes with 20 years experience across the clothing industry’s spectrum, from patternmaking and production through design in both men’s and women’s wear. Jon’s career began in menswear, where he spent eleven years mastering fine tailoring.

Eventually, with a need to expand his creative abilities, Jon delved head first into a new creative dimension, entering the “wonderful world of women’s wear”! Jon’s unique “handwriting” is playful and clever. Full of interesting elements and texture and using quality fabrications, his work fits perfectly into the Obi way of thinking.

Not to be grounded by life’s rules and regulations, Jon sees outside the square and happily explores the use of unconventional and unexpected design elements.
