Perth-born designer Kym Ellery was inspired by Austrian painter Egon Schiele for her F/W 2015/2016 collection; actually her point was to make the wardrobe for painter´s famous nudes. Sounds surreal, but she literally printed the paintings on paper and made sketches on them, like dressing them. The result is a combo of volume, tailoring and texture; oversize coats, A-line dresses,  bell-shaped pants and sleeves of the tops in sleek, but also heavy fabrics, enriched time to time with brocade. Elements and details, like metallic fringes on a front of a strapless dress and top, or the ceramic glazed buttons, that adorned jackets and coats, hand-made by Ellery´s mother Debra, elevated the whole story into a higher level. I doubt that Schiele´s dishabille women wouldn´t appreciate. And they are not the only one.
