AFF Runway 3: The New Classics

South Australia’s ‘new guard’ in contemporary women’s fashion showcased their upcoming collections in the Adelaide Fashion Festival‘s Runway 3 Group Show.

Styled by Nicole Bonython-Hines The New Classics showcased Acler, Naomi Murrell, Elizabeth V, Good Studios, Sylvy Earl and The Daily Edited.

Local legends, Acler showed off their signature clean lines, scultptured statement pieces and layering in looks the wearer could take from day to night. Head designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto have kept minimalism at the core of the young brand which has been making waves in the fashion world, recently seen on Jodi Anasta, Lisa Messenger and Bec Judd.

Good Studios showcased a range of simple garment with boxy silhouettes with cool culottes and camis featuring throughout their collection.

Naomi Murrell’s collection had a distinct 70’s sunny California vibe with warm tones, like the golden age which were reminiscent of Gucci.

The Daily Edited paraded their range of monogrammed bags, finding cute and creative ways to pair them together.

Sylvy Earl’s wide brimmed hats made me want to book a vacation to the Maldives just so I could wear one of her handcrafted masterpieces.

Lastly, luxurious sleepwear designer Elizabeth V proved you can take boudior dressing out of the bedroom and incorporate it into a sexy outfit. The long black silk slip dress was the standout for me which made its way down the runway to a powerful track from New Zealand singer Lorde. The 90’s trend of silk slips and pyjamas can be incorporated into office wear and cocktail wear with the accessories and give off a relaxed yet luxurious and sensual appeal.

The model’s makeup was natural and understated while the hair was the statement with voluminous afros bouncing down the runway after the leggy models.
