Step Into Golden Hour: The 2024 Merry People x Obus Rainwear Collection

Step Into Golden Hour: The 2024 Merry People x Obus Rainwear Collection

Behind The Collaboration

This is our second Merry People x Obus collaboration, and our first time bringing it to our Merry Community across the world!

Let's take you behind the scenes to meet our incredible partners in design, Kylie and the gorgeous Obus team...

As soon as you step into the Obus store in Northcote, Melbourne, you instantly understand why Obus is so well-known, and well-loved! Loved for its stylish-meets-practical wearables, and for its eye-catching prints and colours.

So as two Australian-based, female-founded brands known for bold and bright colour, we knew from the start that this was a true dream team situation!

“We’re really excited to work together again on this collaboration and hope our customers will adore the new creations as much as we do.” - Dani, Founder & CEO of Merry People

With love from Melbourne, we are so proud to introduce our ‘Golden Hour’ collection: made of pure magic.

About The Print

Dappled morning light filtering through the windows, the glow of the setting sun through the trees – the magic of golden hour transforms ordinary moments into something extraordinary.

Our print for this year’s collection is a reimagined Obus print called ‘Golden Hour’; a visual ode to carving out time for oneself in those enchanting moments.

Inspired by the serene beauty just after sunrise or before sunset, ‘Golden Hour’ comes alive in two colour palettes: ‘Dawn’ and ‘Dusk’.

“The ‘Golden Hour’ print is an often-asked-for-favourite that’s translated beautifully onto these covetable new items.” - Kylie, Founder of Obus

A Closer Look At The Collection

Our four-piece waterproof rainwear collection features short and tall Merry People boots, a raincoat, and an all-new backpack.

Our first patterned Fergie Boot has received a colourful update, seamlessly blending function with fashion. A favourite from last year, the Bobbi Boot is back with a twist, featuring an extended neoprene cuff and colour-filled print.

With its two-way zip and generous hood, the Raincoat is the perfect pairing to any rainy adventure. Crafted from 100% recycled fabric, each raincoat gives life to 21 recycled PET bottles. A favourite feature is how it can be easily packed away into an internal pocket that doubles as a bag!

Making its debut in this year's collection, the specially designed Backpack is perfect for urban escapades or outdoor explorations. Durable, waterproof, and each bag gives new life to 65 recycled PET bottles.

Make It Yours

This collection, like last year’s, is limited edition – so if you love it, you won’t want to wait! Choose from a vibrant array of waterproof pieces for all your rainy day adventures.
