Ellery et Graz Australian-designed sunglasses from the Fall 2012 collection

No sooner have we been given a good dose of summery beach-going weather, I am already seeing wintery fashion in the shops.  What is with that!?  NO Witchery I do not require a new winter coat just yet.  It is 35 degrees and I am still looking for a good pair of sandals and killer sunglasses!

The perfect sandals remain elusive but I think I may have the sunglasses covered – how fabulous are these!?  A collab between Australian fashion darling Kym Ellery and local eyewear label Graz, headed by Graz Mulcahy, the gorgeous designs you see above are from the Fall ’12 collection.  (Clearly I’m no fashion blogger, but I hope it is not a massive fashion faux pas to wear them in summer!?)

Kym Ellery is one super inspiring lady I must admit.  After originally studying fashion design in her native Perth, Kym travelled to London to undertake further studies at the very prestigious Central st. Martins.  Upon returning home she pursued an interest in fashion styling – landing a role at Russh Magazine, where she worked for 4 years before launching her own label in 2007.

Since then Ellery has gone from strength to strength, and Kym has picked up a swag of impressive awards and accolades, including being named one of 6 finalists in the ‘Woolmark Designer of the Year Award’ in 2010, receiving the Prix De Marie Claire ‘Best Up & Coming Designer’ award in 2011, and recently  being named one of ‘Five Australian Designers To Know Now’ by influential fashion-news bible Style.com.

It is possibly irrelevant and yet I feel worth mentioning that Kym is also drop-dead beautiful, as you can see over here.

Hmmm perhaps an interview is in order.

    If sunglasses are this fab you can wear them whenever you damn well please (especially the 1st & 5th pairs).

    Re: Sandals. If you’re not opposed to a mid-wedge heel try Melbourne label Maidenlove.
