Paris, 1:30pm. It's cold outside and Palais de Tokyo is bustling with photographers and Fashionistas ready to get a glimpse of the highly anticipated Ellery Autumn/ Winter collection. The red runway sets the mood for pieces that explore sensuality and relevance of garments that were once considered essential. Kym has deconstructed and unravelled pieces from another era, stripping back from the 19th Century and building layers of opulence with the use of lurex velvet, fox fur, double silk georgette and wool suiting. Adding her brands signature trademark flares and presenting them in different proportions with raw edges. Voluminous sleeves and feminine dresses with romantic tucks cascaded down the runway and deep blacks and flesh tones dominated the collection. Accent colours of candy pink lightened the mood and flickers of metallic tones emerged. These silhouettes will empower the wearer through the design excellence and contrast between old and new worlds. This was a covetable collection we can't wait to get our hands on.
