Looks from taylor’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection Kilter. Images supplied.
The new Autumn/Winter 2019 collection from taylor recently arrived in stores and online and it’s full of sophisticated pieces. The range is called Kilter and it ‘explores the relationship of misaligned objects and how they interact with other forms’. Designer Vicki Taylor has taken inspiration from artists such as Jan Van Munster and Anthony McCall to create an elegant range that plays strongly with shape and texture. That means graphic architectural lines that are slightly offset and cut into flowing silk while discreet darting creates unexpected lineation.
Luxurious Italian fabrics such as silk, viscose crepe and wool form the base of this taylor range. Beautiful sheer and opaque fabrications play against each other to create pieces with contemporary silhouettes, while soft garments with artful drapes are styled with tailored pieces over the top as is the brand’s signature style.
This season features a continuation of the luxury sportswear trend that is seen in statement puffer jackets elevated with a flatteringly feminine waist. There are modern hints of sportswear throughout the collection that add a fresh appeal. The classic mid-length coat has been re-imagined with a drop-shoulder to create a soft silhouette that is current and appealing.
Although taylor collections often lean to a monochromatic colour palette as is the designer’s favoured look, this range has some fascinating accent colours. An eye-catching oxide yellow features strongly along with deep sediment green and varying shades of blue from an icy nordic blue through to ink. These magnetic hues are easily adapted into a taylor wardrobe and make for a stylish update to see you through the cooler months.
