On Monday in Sydney Aurelio Costarella showcased his Summer 14/15 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia to a delighted audience. Courtesy of Paul O’Connor at Costarella HQ, Style Voyeur is charmed to share these STUNNING backstage shots taken by Penny Lane and some runway looks with you, boy what a show!
Aurelio Costarella summer 14/15 is a contemporary interpretation of classic 1920’s/30’s Parisienne silhouettes. Inspired by the work of Man Ray and the eclectic style of his muses Kiki de Montparnasse, Tamara de Lempika, Nancy Cunard, Lee Miller and Juliete. This vibrant and multi textured collection of dresses, suiting and gowns takes us on a journey from delicately pretty to decadently noir.
Working closely with Goldwell and MAC in the styling of the show and under the direction of Lee Preston for Goldwell a series of colourful hair styles were created. James Molloy flew in from Hong Kong for MAC to Direct the theatrical themed ‘face’ for the show utilising SWAROVSKI crystals on the eyelids.
This year Costarella collaborated with Jeweler Sally Skoufis who made colourful embellished bangles in the same palette as the collection.
The colour palette was the most intense, textured and vibrant that has ever produced under the Costarella brand! Ranging from crisp white to shades of flame, orchid, violet, citrus, mint, fuchsia, red, cobalt, turquoise, antique, pewter, gunmetal and black. Fabrications include silk chiffon, leather, eyelet lace, print, plisse, intricate beading and embroidery in metal, ostrich feather and crystal.
