Ellery Pre Fall 2017 Collection.
Ellery Pre Fall 2017
Kym Ellery, knows what it sounds like- Nina Simone, singing ‘’Feeling good’’. But how does she translate that feeling into clothes?
Ellery has become known for its mastery of voluminous, big-statement, as evidence in those best selling exaggerated cropped flares and ultra feminine bell-sleeve tops. Tehy indeed, have become instantly the most recognizable codes of the label.
To begin with, this is a collection rich in texture, with luxe materials like deep-pile velvet, curly sheepskin, stretch corduroy and pleated Swiss tulle. For pre-fall, she updated her core shapes with carefully considered details. In consequence, bell-bottom flares were decorated with handmade metal coil and deconstructed ruffled tops offered a new take on frills.
This collection made a forceful visual impact too. She articulated a strong waist and evolved in various ways, the voluminous sleeves.
What is more, she also punctuated her lean silhouettes with sculptural flounces and a range of sharply cut flares. The flares numbered among the items inflecting this outing with strong 70’s vibes.
Moreover, others included the safari- inspired looks and coats with detachable fur collar, cuffs and hem.
Finally, the earth palette and the graphic topstitching punctuate the shapes of several garments.
Most of all, Ellery isn’t famous for being overtly sexy.
However, a mottled-dyed rust velvet midi skirt with lace-up details to the thigh made a point to the contrary. As a final point, she likes big effects and this collection‘s rhythm of whispers and shouts established an overall tone you might describe as soulful.
