2023 has been a historic year for the CommBank Matildas, with the team achieving its first-ever sold-out match and are now preparing to represent Australia in the world's largest women's sporting event, the FIFA Women’s World CupTM, which commences on Thursday, 20 July, at Stadium Australia.
To celebrate the biggest moment in Australian football’s rich history, BEARE PARK will produce a personalised off-field outfit for the CommBank Matildas playing group and
Football Australia female staff.
Each player’s name and Matildas’ cap number will be specially embroidered into the official off-field uniform, integrated with the ‘Til it’s Done rally cry, paying tribute to the team’s pursuit of greatness during the most exciting period for women’s football.
Sarah Walsh, Matildas cap number 125 and current Football Australia Head of Women's Football, Women's World Cup Legacy & Inclusion warmly welcomed BEARE PARK into the football family, stating: “We are delighted to be working with BEARE PARK. This collaboration marks a special moment in our history and BEARE PARK's commitment to quality, elegance, and sustainability resonates with the values of the Matildas. The personalised off-field outfits will serve as a symbol of the indomitable spirit of Australian women's football. We are proud to join forces with BEARE PARK
as another Australian brand making an incredible mark both locally and abroad.”
BEARE PARK is a proudly Australian-owned, female-founded, and purpose-led luxury label that champions a bold and elegant aesthetic, celebrates principles of slow fashion, and seeks to create new pathways towards a circular fashion industry.
BEARE PARK Creative Director and Co-founder, Gabriella Pereira, shared her enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating: “The forthcoming partnership with the CommBank Matildas is a dream collaboration for BEARE PARK, and our proudest milestone for the brand to date. We are honoured to have been selected to create custom suiting for the Matildas - a group who embody the core values of our women-led, designed, and managed brand.”
BEARE PARK’s tailoring is designed, cut, and sewn by hand in Sydney, crafted from 100% Australian Merino Wool woven in the Biella region of northern Italy which is renowned for its production of the world’s highest quality wool cloth. Offering a luxurious take on androgyny and subtle sophistication,
BEARE PARK’s silhouettes are bold and elegant, anchored in masterful tailoring and an aesthetic that transcends both age and gender.
“The gravity of this appointment is not lost on us – to celebrate and support these iconic athletes and role models on a global stage is both surreal and career-defining. We cannot wait to cheer them on to victory.” Pereira continued.
Made to embolden each wearer and capture comfort in feeling both powerful and polished, the BEARE PARK philosophy looks to empower the day to day through putting one’s best self forward, so that every memory made whilst wearing reflects confidence both inside and out
– a philosophy perfectly aligned to that of the CommBank Matildas.
