TALULAH Swim & Resort 2014

There is only one thing getting me through the chilly winter mornings.. Dreaming about the swimsuit season!

I can’t stop thinking about tropical florals, flowing silky dresses and sexy bikinis since I’ve seen Talulah’s new Crystal Tropics collection showcased at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week earlier this year. These playful beachside combinations, exciting prints and gorgeous feminine silhouettes are an irresistible invitation to a bohemian exotic holiday.

STRATEAS.CARLUCCI – Monochrome Magic

Following Aurelio Costarella’s beautiful sorbet colour palette, Strateas Carlucci’s dark mood, sleek styling and strong architectural approach provided quite a contrast. The Australian based label created by Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci has been launched in Paris first with the aim to establish themselves in the overseas markets and make their official Australian debut later.

Although the brand was born just two years ago, they already made a mark on the industry. Their ‘sink or swim’ manoeuvre has paid off and their collections have been picked up by 20 stockists all over the world in Russia, Italy, France, Ukraine, Austria, Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia, Finland, China and Hong Kong.

The label’s vision is to create garments that are timeless through structured and minimal styles. Although the outfits are officially separated into womenswear and menswear on the runway, customers are encouraged to cross gender boundaries and pick out unisex garments from either collections.

The collection showing yesterday was called ‘Fracture’, reflecting the concept of “fractured forms’ with garments created with a sharp, architectural construction and tailoring.

Their signature jacket is made of kangaroo leather accompanied by thick wools and layers upon layers of dark fabrics on the runway. I like their sleek suits and I am sure that both the international and local market will warmly welcome their clean and minimal aesthetic.

AURELIO COSTARELLA – Parisienne Glamour

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014 has kicked off with an absolutely glamorous contemporary interpretation of classic 1920’s/30’s Parisienne silhouettes showcased by Aurelio Costarella this morning.

Aurelio Costarella, mercedes-benz fashion week australia

Western-Australia’s most successful designer has named Man Ray and his muses as source of main inspiration behind the collection titled “Solaire” taking us on a ‘journey from delicately pretty to decadently noir.” He swept me off my feet.. I loved those delicate fabrics, pretty colours and feminine silhouettes. Tres jolie!

The astonishing evening gowns evidenced the strong influence of the most iconic designers living at the turn of the century and the early 1920’s such as:

*Madame Grès – the “grand sphinx” of the haute couture famous for her flowing Grecian-goddess style dresses
