Aje: Resort 22 'Scent Of Summer' Runway Show
Created by co-founders Adrian Norris and Edwina Forest in 2008, esteemed Australian fashion house Aje presented their Resort 22 collection at The Calyx, Royal Botanic Garden on Tuesday 11th May 2021.
In an ode to escapism; of sensory delectation; ‘Scent of Summer’ is designed to invite your senses to step into the mood, feeling and metaphor of summer.
As the world continues to move through a state of flux, Australian fashion house Aje’s Resort 22 runway collection offers a dreamscape of summer; a voyage to another time and place, where hearts ran free, and souls ran wild.
The Resort 22 collection is enveloped in colour, playfully contrasting bold neon with sophisticated neutrals. The collection is anchored by opulent shapes with overblown proportions, voluminous puff sleeves, cut-out details, structured forms and floating lengths in a reference to heritage and modern Aje silhouettes.
Ornate and unexpected embellishments transpire in floral sequinning and hand-beaded daisies applied on transparent organza in cut-out Sixties shapes, while handsewn guipure applique and hand-ruched flowers in cotton poplin reflect a long-standing devotion to artisanal techniques and craftsmanship.
The season’s hand-painted overblown floral prints in signature fabrications of silk linen and cotton poplin are each a symbolic nod to summertime bliss in tones of citrus, olive, fuchsia and wallpaper floral. Organic shaped hand-cast hardware in metal and resin are accented throughout, while bespoke broderie anglaise sits beside Italian yarn knits in hand-crocheted racer styles.
