AURA by Tracie Ellis is an uninhibited, stylish range of homewares. Designed in Melbourne and inspired by years of global meandering, AURA is all about extravagant colour! Daring chevrons, bold stripes, neons, shapes and brave block prints mingle freely with delightfully oversized jacquards and unique hand made pieces. Welcome to a world that's a little bit Scandinavian, a little bit ethnic Indian and a whole lot of Melbourne.
The new season AW15 range is powerful, full of mystery with flashes of colour and shaped patterns. Here’s a little insight into some of the designs that we have both in store and online:
‘Are they triangles, or are they the line in between?’. That is the mystery of ‘Kolmio’, an illusion of colour, shape and texture unlike anything else in its field. From its pointed charcoal pattern to its unflinching flashes of neon lime, this testament to triangulation pays tribute to that most wistful of epigrams, “not all those who wander are lost”.
A polished prism of pastel refractions, ‘Cinq’ is the result of a daring experiment in angles, colour and form. Split into demure tones of honeydew, pink and marshmallow, it's crystalline shards intersect on an array of black and grey to create a pattern of diffraction that is polarising, yet persuasive. Like a perfect cut stone, this multifaceted pinnacle of precision promises to equal more than just the sum of its parts.
From the sacrosanct shores of Bretangne emerged the classic French stripe, forever destined to be favoured by couturiers and fashionistas alike. ‘Corner Stripe’ features the most famous of stripes which re-emerge in the bedroom, blending film noir with cafe creme to create a sophisicated touch of elegance with a taste of the Riviera – it’s also available in a new season orange.
People have been folding paper for almost as long as they have been making it. There is just something magical in teasing out structure from nothing more than a formless plane, where only the manipulation and manoeuvering of angles and lines are what lies between you and your masterpiece. ‘Kami’ is a nod to this most ancient of customs, a contemporary framework upon which to test your artistry and imagination. And if you think the black is striking you should take a look at the fresh and crisp mint colourway.
