Kym Ellery was born in Perth, Western Australia. After completing the Certificate of Fashion Design in Perth, she made her way to London, attending a highly acclaimed fashion school studying Fashion Illustration and Sketchbook Building and developing the invaluable design skills she now possesses.
A crucial member of the creative team at Russh Magazine for over 4 years, her keen eye and avant-garde inspiration was translated both onto the pages of the magazine, then into her own label, ELLERY.
. E L L E R Y ‘s Spring’12 collection, entitled ‘The Silent Years’, was born from a singular focus on 1970’s cults, sects and secret societies. In particular, the fascination lay in the ritualistic behavior of mislead cult members and their devout faith in the absurd.
Out of bleak inspiration, E L L E R Y has created an uplifting Spring collection, with a colour palette of effervescent pink, rust, toasted almond and metallics. A floral vase print ties the palette together and plays on the repetitive nature and symbolism of cults.
Silhouettes are either long and lean or voluminous and cropped.
The skirts are decidedly feminine, grazing the knee at a demure length which is in contrast with masculine tailoring of pant suits, with slim long tux jackets and spliced front creased trousers.
E L L E R Y stays true to its signature silhouettes of structured shell tops, peplums, culotte hybrids and box pleat mini skirts for which they are famed.
Sporty enters the luxe realm with fine neoprene sweaters and peplumed skirts. Silk wool and mélange charcoal linen are combined to create pared-back uniform for urbanites. A unique lurex laser cut loop overlay created by esteemed Swiss textile house, Jakob Schlaepfer, highlights the collection.
. E L L E R Y . spares no detail in their quest to perfect the ultimate urban wardrobe, made up of enviable separates, worthy of a cult status .
