Hanne Gaby Odiele could (subjectively) be considered God’s gift to the street style blogosphere, so hearing she’s a fan of your brand is as pretty sizeable as compliments come. And Odiele’s definitely got a thing for designer (and Miss Vogue stylist) Kym Ellery.
Earlier this year, the Belgian model made an exclusive appearance on the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia runway to walk for Ellery. At the same time she was tapped by online retail platform Jasu to front its AW2013 campaign, wearing pieces by Ellery as well as Romance Was Born, Dion Lee, Ginger and Smart, Michael Lo Sordo and Bec and Bridge (and while she obviously got paid for doing that, she’s also been snapped for style blogs wearing Ellery’s ankle cuffs).
Now the Belgian model and the Australian brand have joined forces again. Odiele is the face of the Ellery’s Fall 2013 campaign, full of sculptural silhouettes and graphic prints of the sort you’d expect to find in Odiele’s own closet. Kym Ellery doesn’t do anything meekly, and her thigh-split skirts and billowing flare pants, in particular, abide by the ‘go big or go home’ rule. If you only buy one talking point accessory this season, make it a pair of the Clydesdale-like cuffs Odiele’s already added to her own closet.
