I'm in love with Kelly Love! Australian born designer now living in London has worked for Osaka, Baccini & Hill and ASOS before embarking on her own collection.
KELLY LOVE is a feminine yet contemporary luxury brand that specialises in craftsmanship. Exclusive hand drawn sketches are printed onto beautiful silks, luxurious outerwear is made from developing fabrics with Italian mills and knitwear is crafted by hand from lambs wool, linen and cotton.
Her AW 15 collection Blues Before Sunrise, named after the Leeroy Carr song, explores the historical towns of South Carolina in the Deep South of America. The collection includes wildflowers, thistles and succulents as backgrounds of her luxurious designs.
'It’s raining. Not the incessant drizzle that you run to seek shelter from, but a fresh, heavenly downpour that the townsfolk have longed for. Fat drops cut through the thick humidity of yet another sweltering day.
They say in the deepest parts of the south, the heat can make a sane man go crazy. Up until this sweet rain touched my face, I could have sworn they may be right. But it’s beautiful here too - an organic beauty that occurs quietly and slowly. Towering old oaks stand proudly next to rambling houses with wrap around porches, while the smell of sweet southern cooking infuses the air.
And everywhere you look there are gardens of wildflowers in earthy colours and succulents of the brightest green. They spill onto the blistering sulphur and sit in flower boxes between brightly painted shutters. These lush gardens provide respite from the heat and a haven to enjoy the slow life......'
