Women’s Winter Fashion by Australian designer Kelly Love
Collection: Autumn/Winter 2011 – Song of the Rainbird
Words from press release
It started with a song. A collaboration with up and coming band Nova’s Basement followed which then morphed into the AW2011 collection;
Song of the Rainbird
A collection of 60’s inspired garments with reference to the correlation between muses of fallen rock stars and beautiful birds in cages. A journey of angst and glamour as the muse copes with the impending loss of her beautiful yet unfortunate life.
The collection embodies sex appeal with timeless elegance combining beautifully cut pieces with clean lines, precise workmanship and hints of femininity & quirkiness. Exclusive prints are featured on heavily sand washed silk, painted fur and mohair give texture while wool and suede add a lux appeal to this collection.
The colour palette sees French navy, contrasting black against white & dusky grey punctuated by pops of dark fuchsia and olive.
