WHEN MELBOURNE DESIGNER MELMA HAMERSFELD BEGAN TO PLAY WITH STOCKING FABRIC IN THE EARLY 90’S, SHE CREATED A FASHION CONCEPT THAT WOMEN FELL IN LOVE WITH. HER SOFT, COMFORTABLE, FLATTERING BASICS FOLLOWED THE CURVES OF WOMEN’S BODIES, GIVING THEM FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT AND A SENSE OF CONFIDENCE.
The Metalicus signature look is distinctive and unmistakable. Metalicus celebrates creativity with collectable pieces that can be layered together to create an individual style. There is a sense of pragmatism that balances the artistic instincts that lay at the heart of each collection.
The expression and experimentation that comes from a true love of fashion is carefully considered into wearable styles that will transcend seasons and trends. Metalicus was born with a free and enigmatic spirit. Metalicus styles are smart, strong and beautiful like the women who wear them.
Always iconic. Always Metalicus.
A new generation has emerged.
At Metalicus we believe in delivering luxurious fabrics that combine fashion and function, comfort and performance, ensuring you never need to sacrifice functionality for style. We spend months researching yarns, washes and finishes to bring you technical fabrics that you can throw in the wash again and again, that stand up to the fullest days ensuring what you wear never stands in your way.
O U R W O O L | Very lightweight fabrics are intrinsically difficult to make from wool, but at Metalicus we believe in the luxury of fine fabrics and the ease of transeasonal layering. Our Nuyarn is sourced from New Zealand and is the finest wool yarn available. The technology behind Nuyarn allows us to offer a superior ultra fine wool that is perfect to be worn next to the skin due to the different structure of the yarn. Our wools made from Nuyarn have greater softness and comfort than those made from conventional yarns, they are free from spirality, 50% stronger, 35% warmer, dry 5 times faster and have superior performance than their traditional equilivents.

We take these normally unused fibres and transform them into a precious resource Cupro. Cupro has properties that cotton doesn’t have, a softer and smoother touch to the skin, a breathable fibre with micro pores that quickly absorb moisture keeping you cool and reducing clinging and dampness. These features allow you to feel cool in Summer and warm in Winter making it comfortable to wear all year round.
O U R N Y L O N | We use Nylon with anti wicking properties and blend this yarn with a variety of newly developed technical yarns to create soft pieces you can throw in the wash again and again, that stand up to the fullest days. Whether you are biking to the office, taking a walk at lunch or dashing to make your connection, what you wear never stands in your way.
