Raes Artist in Residence

Following from our 2019 Artist in Residence with painter Stanislas Piechaczek, Raes alongside Perrier-Jouët is thrilled to announce our Artist in Residence for 2020 as Sydney-based designer, and founder of Australia’s premiere resort-wear label Commas, Richard Jarman.

“What really draws me to Raes is it’s a hotel with a soul. It has an incredible ability to energise you and remain tranquil at the same time. The connection to the ocean coupled with the history of the hotel provides a most idyllic place to design a collection”.

Richard’s time spent on property has been largely influenced by the hotel’s story telling capabilities, and it’s natural surrounds. So too is the collection he designed during his residency. A project 12 months in the making, we are now proud to share with you our Raes x Commas capsule collection. The collection includes a unisex long and short sleeve shirt, swim short, walk short and bag. All pieces are available to purchase through our E-Store.


In the meantime, take a pause and pleasure in the moment and enjoy the playlist Richard created during his time spent at Raes.
