December 1, 2014

The new Ellery resort collection is the stuff sartorial dreams are made of. Sumptuous, thick satins, bonded Lycra on foam, skinny zipped flares, sundresses that are voluminous, wide and optimistic but somehow dressy,cool and nonchalant, to die for suits and intricate corsets,made for summer dinner shorts, booties that go with everything and a lot of fashion's favorite new length - the midi - incarnated in immaculately cut skirts and dresses. This collection is a return to Ellery's covetable codes: the desirable mix of luxury, je ne sais quoi, irreverence, modernism and femininity. I'm sorry to break this to you, but this is the collection that you will want to spend a lot of money on. The prints in the collection are vibrant and exciting too - inspired by David Hockney's brush strokes and block colors they jump off the fabric and add a bold, architectural feel to the resort collection.

This season, Ellery has partnered with Vittoria Coffee on launching the Vittoria Coffee Summer Fashion Series ; a collection of limited edition designer takeaway cups created by some of Australia's best design talent (other designers lending their signature prints is the swimwear brand We Are Handsome, menswear label Insted We Smile, and recently launched fashion label We Are Kindred). The cups come in 8 designs and represent a visual experience for Vittoria customers, not to mention Vittoria Coffee's ongoing partnership with leading and emerging designers each season.

In this story, I have a play with the new collection, the amazing prints and Kym Ellery herself. I truly loved the clothes so much that I still have recurring fantasies of disappearing with all the samples...Oh Kym, you did it again!
