We had to refrain ourselves from biting our freshly manicured nails we’d been so eagerly awaiting the pairing of L’Oréal Paris Runway 05 presented by Harper’s BAZAAR with some of our most beloved Australian designers.
Opening the show with a crowd favourite, sass and bide provided monochrome looks, sequined panels, large scaled prints and elegant black velvets with crystal trimmings. This winter the now signature sass and bide cape will be a wardrobe staple for every fashion woman.
In true Ellery style cap sleeves, accentuated hips were mixed between classic cool and evening cocktail. Arthur Galan created leather vixens with black fedoras capes and gold embellishments.
Christopher Esber reinvented the black dress with his simple hem line and sculpted hips, the open pleating reveling a metallic underlay, beautiful in its simplicity and mix of classic style and modern edge.
The show continued on a sleek modern path, with the Harper’s BAZAAR teams take on sporty luxe. Karla Spetic stood apart from the dark wools, leather, and oversized coats with pastel pink and sherbet orange, a playful sporty take on girly hemlines paired with white converse shoes. Bassike provided us with leather monochrome dresses and sporty caps, bold colours and soft silhouettes for the glammed up take on sporty dressing.
The runway was wrapped up in an abundance of capes both structured and draped, in leather, wool , metallic and fringed. Alongside monochrome tailoring they are set to be our wardrobe staple this winter. An idealistic cohesion between an assortment of designers, unified through the subtle effortlessness of L’Oréal Paris’ straight pinned hair, nude lips and smokey eye.
