Alice Edgeley’s latest collection was inspired by Antonio Lopez’s polaroid photos, and a series of films she watched on SBS in Winter. From Wong Kar Wai ‘s 2046 to Pam Grier in Coffy, the collection radiates late 70s vibes, fun, disco-pop, and easy glamour.
The collection features an array of cascading ‘bleeding’ hearts, military epaulettes on shirts, flashy 70s embellishments in the shape of gold heart buttons on the shirts and gold chain belts worn with the catsuits and dresses in shades of dusty pink, burgundy, indigo and rust.
Edgeley has always prided herself on finding a balance between high glamour and practicality, elegance and kitsch. Questioning firmly established notions of ‘good taste’ is a concept that runs throughout the Edgeley brand, which is entirely made in Melbourne.
