Ellery Spring 2016
Kym Ellery already has a following including It girls and street style stars, and her pieces are carried at top luxury retailers like Net-a-Porter, but this was Ellery’s first-ever show in Paris. The brand is known for its big volumes, bell sleeves, and bell pants, which make great statement pieces for its Instagram-happy clientele. But this season Ellery took it to another level.
The pieces were reigned in, with toned down versions of bell sleeves that were tied at the elbows or as separate accessory pieces worn with an ivory off-the-shoulder dress that was simple and clean and scooped at the neck in just the right way (it’s a dress every girl needs in her closet). The big belled pants looked cool when paired with a white cropped dress shirt. A black leather coat cinched at the waist had the perfect proportions, and a long black coat with embellishments was a great statement piece without being over the top. This time around, Ellery looks poised to target a new, broader set of chic clientele, and she will with this collection.
