ELLERY SS16: WRAPPED COAST
By 0 Comments|
HONG KONG | A sense of stillness surrounds each and every creation from Ellery. This well-established Australian brand is very personal. It feels like if there’s a bit of it’s founder Kym Ellery on every single piece. This soul searching process that is reflected in her work is most likely influenced by her exposure to art since she was little. Her mother is an artist who creates artwork with textiles and ceramics.
Ellery Resort collectionHer signature futuristic cutting plays a key role in Ellery SS16 collection. A metallic scrunched fabric recalls the reflection of ripples on the night time ocean whilst clear fibre-optic fringing points to a duality between the natural, the sculptural and the man-made. Ellery’s goal is to elevate the power of the “artwork” as her main source of inspiration in every single piece. So she designed playful and elegant silhouettes with curtained panels, volume, ties, drawstrings and metal embellishments. Sometimes she likes to deconstruct shapes, for instance, by playing with loose sleeves, or layered shirts. Abstract floral prints inspired by the Australian flora add a touch of vitality to the collection. She combines these prints with textures and a shocking color palette that goes from pink, to gunmetal, ivory and pale blue.
