Ellery Resort 2017 Collection

Ellery Resort 2017 Collection

Kym Ellery isn’t the kind to subscribe to conventional notions of sexy; in her hands the classic date-night dress is anything but tight, short, or sweet. And yet unpacking the idea of skin-revealing clothing was clearly something of a priority for the designer this season—the first look in the new collection features a racy mesh turtleneck that leaves little to the imagination. When you consider that Alejandro Jodorowsky’s movie Holy Mountain, a ’70s surrealist fantasy in which most of the cast wonders around in bizarre states of undress, was Ellery’s main source of inspiration, then that overt display of the body makes a little more sense. Still, it’s the subtler flashes of skin that make for the best eye candy, like the plunging deep-V on an ankle-length crisp white shirtdress, and the shoulder cut outs on a very pretty printed silk peasant dress. In fact as far as exploring new and uncharted territory goes, the bold woodcut pattern on that very frock is an unexpected and exciting addition to the Ellery playbook, one that gives the label’s signature minimalist silhouette an appealing sense of romance.

As any street style star north of Sydney will tell you, it’s the brand’s billowing flares that put it on the map. This time around, the attention is squarely at shoulder level, with an array of different statement sleeves—ruffled, ruched, leg-of-mutton—that would make for an Instagram photo op on the sidewalk of just about any fashion capital. Having successfully launched denim a couple of seasons ago, the Australian brand is expanding its accessories offering, too, with a full shoe collection launching for Resort. After the mismatched Calder-inspired statement earrings, the sculptural Chelsea boot is a trophy piece cool girls will want to take home for keeps. And if you thought atheleisure was a dirty word, then the bell-sleeved sweatshirt and slouchy racing-stripe track pants might change your mind.

Joie Spring 2017 Ready to Wear Presentation

Joie Spring 2017 Ready to Wear Presentation

There is a certain look that’s prevalent among the urban-centered, young(ish), freewheeling females of coastal America and Western Europe, especially on the weekends. You could probably call it boho-lite: There’s usually an army jacket involved, a vintage-looking blouse or sundress, maybe a boy fit jean or something tighter and cooler that alludes to great legs and a past propensity for nightlife. It’s the elder sister of the “model off-duty,” who doesn’t look out of place picking up the kids from school or going on a brunch date. It is a comfortable look, one that ensures you will never look like you are trying too hard. In fact, the only real risk involved is running into someone else wearing the same thing. Sound familiar? It should. This is a Joie girl, they are everywhere, and thanks to VP of design Rachel Wilder-Hill, they should be very happy come spring.

“We always have one foot in California, one foot in Paris,” said Wilder-Hill, by which, of course, she meant they stand astride the very idea of “cool girl.” Wilder-Hill sourced vintage prints from flea markets, her own personal photographs, and wallpaper samples for filmy blouses and tiered sundresses. The prettiest of these was a pale watercolor floral that “came to me in a vision,” she said. Other items (patchworked Indian block prints) were more traditionally the stuff of travels abroad and inherited hauls; though as Wilder-Hill pointed out, the Joie girls do “not want to look like they’ve just escaped from their grandmother’s attic.” Reliable best-sellers for the brand like eyelet, crochet, and lace turned up in easy shifts and trapeze tops (all the better to pair with those high-waisted jeans), and the only real challenge, said Wilder-Hill, is finding something new to do with them. Have faith, though: The Joie girl will figure it out.
