Haydenshapes – [RUBBER] is a new brand category debuting in design collaboration with innovative Australian fashion designer and creative, Dion Lee. Lightweight, warm and ultra comfortable, the entire collection is created using premium Japanese Yamamoto Limestone rubber - the best and most expensive neoprene in the market. Blending contemporary shape with technical construction designed for performance surfing with a multifunctional approach, the 18 piece mens and women's collection ranges from more simplistic wetsuit concepts to the more technically designed pieces.

Select styles include Dion Lee's signature braided spine detail 'neoprene gills', a feature seen within his iconic fashion collections. Key womens rubber pieces incorporate soft boned corsetry, never before seen applied to a wetsuit, designed for surf / swim that bring strong feminity and shape drawing on Dion Lee's globally celebrated detail for architectural tailoring. “My design language stems from a technical ideation, and I’ve always been drawn to neoprene and wetsuiting as a materiality in my collections. Working with Hayden to introduce a design-focused, performance-driven, elevated product is incredibly exciting.”
- Dion Lee

Perhaps the collection's most unique story is the 'modular' concept consisting of a womens bolero, body suit, pant, short and cropped long sleeve top along with a mens short, long john suit and wetsuit top. This collection story allows the wearer to layer their wetsuit to suit the climate or season, or to deconstruct and wear as individual pieces. Developed with an open mindedness for shape, materiality, construction and concept, Haydenshapes Rubber is ridden and endorsed by Dion Agius, Jake Kelley and Frankie Harrer.
