Ellery have been around for a few years now, a label by Australian fashion designer and stylist Kym Ellery. We’ve not covered them much before, but after seeing their striking new collection thought we’d put up the whole lookbook for you, it’s pretty wild.
For their recent Fall (Autumn) Winter '11 pieces titled ‘Tenenbaums in the Tuileries’, they’ve combined an interesting mix of influences, The Royale Tenenbaums and Marie Antoinette.
Sophisticated and modern, Tenenbaums in the Tuileries creates a paradox of sporty sensibility and refined opulence that rewrites the classic Tenenbaum characters. Fusing sportswear with ribbed cuffs to contrast the feminine extravagance of tweeds and couture silk tulle ruffles, the new Ellery collection creates a juxtaposition of sharp and gentle.
With oversized wool jumpers in pale tones alongside Italian wool pod coats, silver satin wide leg flared pants, and an ivory tweed and lurex jacket. Other features include structured dresses with sculptured shoulders that manage to be a little dramatic but still elegant.
Colours are subtle with pastels and hits of vivid red, powdery pinks, mild barley and metallics, giving a soft, muted tone a hard edge with bursts of colour alongside strong detailing and sharp structuring.
Check out their bold lookbook shots by Daniel Nadel, and we’ll post more from the campaign shoot soon. Look out for the spoon in the last shot.
Tenenbaums in the Tuileries will be in stores in February.
