Get The Nine Perfect Strangers Look with P.E Nation
Hulu’s new miniseries Nine Perfect Strangers, which launched on August 20, has been a hit worldwide, and showcases several of Australia’s exports and offerings - from its talent and stunning landscapes, to its creative industries and Australian clothing labels; including P.E Nation.
The series is based on The New York Times bestselling book by Australian author Liane Moriarty, who also wrote Big Little Lies (you may remember that tome’s Golden Globe-winning TV adaptation, starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz).
A Showcase of Australian Landscape and Creative Talent
The all-star cast of Nine Perfect Strangers - featuring some of Australia’s finest actors - includes Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Bobby Cannavale, Luke Evans, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving and Asher Keddie.
The show is largely set in a fictitious Northern Californian boutique health-and-wellness resort, which promises healing and transformation as nine city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during their 10-day retreat is the resort’s director, Masha (Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
While the Jonathan Levine directed eight-episode series was originally planned to be filmed in California, much of the show was shot on Australian shores. The upmarket resort known as Tranquillum House in the miniseries is actually the exclusive Soma health and wellbeing retreat in New South Wales’ coastal playground, Byron Bay.
Many of Soma’s high-end amenities, including a fresh water infinity pool, a geodesic yoga dome and 22 acre forest, play a role in scenes throughout the series. “The resort itself is such a big character,” director Jonathan Levine told Forbes. “It was perfect with its amazing woods, jungles and beaches, and captured the feeling we were looking for.”
Nine Perfect Strangers Wardrobe
Another big player when it comes to setting the scene and tone of any TV show or Hollywood movie is undoubtedly the costumes and wardrobe worn by the main characters.
And though much of the Nine Perfect Strangers clothes appear to be free of any distinct fashion brands, there are a couple of labels that have stood out among the episodes that have aired to date - from Balenciaga and Fendi, to Nike, Adidas and P.E Nation.

While this sports crop has since sold out, there are similar styles in our current collection. You can mirror the Nine Perfect Strangers look with the Courtside Sports Bra in Black, with its complementary colourway of black, red, orange, soft purple and white. Match it back with the Courtside Legging or Courtside Short, then layer up with the Courtside Jacket - all pictured below.
With Nine Perfect Strangers currently airing to a global audience, it’s a proud moment for P.E Nation to be included among some of the finest exports Australia has to offer.
