Australian designer Kym Ellery has gained a global following for her unique design style, which includes her statement flares and sculptural tailoring. Ellery has set a new standard for Australian and International designers, allowing Australian women to be on par with the rest of the high-fashion world by developing pieces that reflect our uniquely relaxed Australian life-style with luxury and sophistication. One of the most exciting designers to come out of Australia in many years, Ellery have been worn by style icons from Rihanna to Solange Knowles, Cate Blanchett to Elle Fanning, the label started out as an evening project for Ellery while she worked as part of the fashion team at Australian magazine, Russh. Launched in 2007, with its seventies-inspired tailoring, an Ellery garment is known for its exceptional cut and innovative use of textures. Now Ellery shows on-schedule during Paris Fashion Week. In collaboration with the consummate Kym Ellery, Parlour X offers an exclusive collection of statement styles including elegant dresses and signature looks with a unique Parlour X take. Kym Ellery’s eponymous Australian fashion label has acquired a devoted it girl following including, Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Katie Holmes, Brooklyn Decker, Halle Berry and Rachel Bilson. The Australia’s AW16 collection showcases the turn-of-the-century garment and reconstructed it in a modern way. Rather than lacing a silhouette into a tight, trussed-up bundle, Ellery focused on liberating the body. The most obvious signs of the hourglass waist-cincher were all coming undone, belting a floor-length coat and minimalist black dress with what looked like a single top button. Ellery generally likes her proportions to run on the oversized end of the scale, and the mannish coats came with boned panels in the back, which only emphasized their boxy shapes. On the topic of volume, the signature extreme flares made several appearances in the collection, more signs of this volume where indicated with the beedee fluted skirt, a checked lurex with zip back closure in the colour way blue, multi and gold and silver. The perfect style for layering, as spotted on Maja Wyh, Lucy Williams and Jenna Coleman, the oversized style inspiration from these blogers are the chicest way to incorporate this style into your everyday look and transform the way you look at AW16 trends. In order to dust off your wardrobe’s very best and get stuck into some serious sales pieces, look to the humulis top, a smooth crepe jersey fabrication with lurex v-neckline and zipped v-back closure. A day-to-night savior, this blouse is a slick top that comes on leaps and bounds in style and attitude. With dramatically oversized sleeves and silhouette means you can be as girlie or as an androgynous as you desire. An as with any wardrobe classic, making it personal lies in how you style it, check out this sales piece and how the Parlour X team styles it.
