Desiderate was formed in 2017 by Janine Leghissa, to give women gorgeous, high-quality jewellery that is a little bit boho, a little bit bling.
That ethos translates to Taleeta too.

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙚𝙩𝙖 𝙬𝙤𝙢𝙖𝙣:

You’re 40+ and you’re not as young, slim and fit as you once were. You want to look great and feel great at the same time.
You’re tired of finding a lovely outfit, only to realise the skirt is too short or the waistband is too tight, or the cut or colour is wrong. Or worse — the largest size is AU12. (When the average Aussie woman is size 14-16, that’s ridiculous! 👿)
Taleeta will give you the right size range with cuts that don’t pinch, fabrics that don’t scratch and designs that flatter — no matter what your shape.

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙚𝙩𝙖 𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣:

The launch capsule includes 10 classic pieces: pants, tops, dresses and a signature swimsuit. Each comes in a range of flattering soft colours to suit a variety of skin tones and colourings.
The fabrics are all-natural, breathable bamboo, linen and cotton. Because whether you're peri, in the midst or post the big M. We need all the natural fibres we can get, right? Nothing sweaty, clingy or stiff — ever!

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙚𝙩𝙖 𝙨𝙩𝙮𝙡𝙚 𝙥𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙩𝙚:

The range features natural greens, earthy indigo, soft coral, regal purple and cool white. The colours all complement each other, allowing you to mix and match the entire range.

𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙚𝙖𝙧 𝙏𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙚𝙩𝙖:

In this post-pandemic world, we need fashion that takes us from work to the beach, to dinner and beyond. So the Taleeta range will deliver a collection that is casual in nature but can also be dressed up or down according to your day. With heels and sparkly gems, your Taleeta dress will look great on the town. At the same time, you can throw on thongs and a sun hat and wear your Taleeta style at the beach. It’s a range that reflects the out-and-about lifestyle of the modern Aussie woman.

Says Janine, ‘The origin of the word Taleeta comes from a Desiderate customer and friend of mine. My elderly friend had bought many pieces from Desiderate over the years. Knowing her as an ideal customer for a fashion label, I asked her, what should I call the sister brand?

She said Taleeta, as it means ‘beautiful new thing' in her native language.

Unfortunately she has since passed away, so I never got to ask her how to spell it or even what language she meant. I wish I’d been able to get more information from her, but it was only after she passed that I remembered our conversation and the name she suggested. The name is a tribute to our friendship.
