For team Who What Wear Australia, Ellery was our most anticipated show of the Paris S/S 16 schedule. It may have something to do with national pride (Ellery is only the third Australian label in a century to be granted official recognition by the Federation Francaise de la Couture du Pret-a-Porter des Couturiers et des Createurs de Mode), but it’s mostly Kym Ellery’s ability to create exactly what we want to wear—before we even know it.
Last night saw a new breed of Ellery. The long fluid lines and voluminous shapes were still present—but we also hints of a new era. Ninties style slip dresses, unexpected cut-outs and relaxed pieces that can seamlessly fit into any woman’s spring wardrobe, are soaring to the top of our wishlists.
