Costarella pas­sions in print

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

MOD­ERN art has inspired Aure­lio Costarella’s 2015 win­ter col­lec­tion, Ab­strac­tion.

Pared-down lux­ury, colour, tex­ture, ex­quis­ite silks, me­tal­lic over­tones and strong prints all come to­gether to of­fer a di­verse se­lec­tion.

Costarella said he had cre­ated two ex­clu­sive prints for the col­lec­tion.

“Both were de­signed by me and printed onto silk satin or­ganza,” he said.

“They have ab­stract el­e­ments; the first is a kalei­do­scopic swirl of colour, the sec­ond, bold and mono.”

The Perth fash­ion de­signer said he loved the grand old muses.

“Parisi­enne women full of mys­tery and charm,” he said.

“A lit­tle deca­dent but eter­nally el­e­gant. Marisa Beren­son, Lau­ren Hut­ton, Tina Chow and Josephine Baker have al­ways inspired my work.

“Win­ter for me is about beau­ti­ful sep­a­rates: warm lay­ers with tex­ture and charm.

“It’s a great time to truly ex­press one’s fash­ion per­sona.”

The com­plete range is avail­able from Post Em­po­rium, 23 View St, North Perth, with more online at www.au­re­lio­costarella.com.
