The contorted nudes of Egon Schiele’s expressionistic paintings were the starting point for the Ellery Fall’15 collection. The artist’s subjects, both voluminous and shrunken, twisted and asymmetrical as well as sharp and soft, act as muse. The result; an artful collection.
Restraint is shown in the silhouette this season, allowing the intricate fabrications to be showcased.
Texture is rife with a dynamic mix of suede, brocades, silk wool, appliquéd lace and metallic fringing whilst a steady focus on tailoring steers into new territory. Classic tux pants, crisp shirting and blazers are in balance with draped elongated dresses, wrap column skirts, shell top dresses and peplum jackets.
Coats are in focus with all-engulfing pods, slim classics and the trench coat; both nonchalantly slouchy and stiffly architectural.
Fall’15 is decidedly modern. It merges the past indefinably as a piece of the future whilst still being so very perfect for the now.
