Aje: Resort 23 ‘Sculptura’ Runway Show

Aje, Level 1

Encapsulating a place where art, the body and nature entwine, is an exploration of the inherent interplay between form and space. Resort 23 ‘Sculptura’

In creating the collection ahead of its debut at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week, Creative Directors Edwina Forest and Adrian Norris looked to the ways in which sculptors interpret the natural world around them through the creations of the landscape becoming both the inspiration and subject of their art. Showcased at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia on the 11th of May, 2022, the collection represented a deepening of Aje’s perennial reverence for art and nature.

An assemblage of contrasts, Resort 23 combines sculpturesque silhouettes with textural pleating; dramatic draping with unexpected cutouts; sheer overlays bedecked with glass beading, and cornelli lace boasting interwoven metalwork: each element working to both reveal and conceal the body.

Asymmetrical accents, tubular trims and radical ruffles adorn hemlines, sleeves and the bodices of dresses, creating voluminous shapes that tease the eye. Aje’s signature raw edge trims cameo throughout Resort 23, presenting predominantly on hemlines and as latticework adorning miniskirts for an elegantly undone effect.

Vivid citrus hues imbued with golden undertones form the collection’s core colours, with this season’s prints borrowing from the same palette; unfolding in bold, hand-painted botanicals and broad, free-form brushstrokes. Invoking shape, depth and texture alike, vibrant fringing on epaulettes, hemlines and denim creates the feeling of submerging the body in colour.

Continuing to play with form and space, the accessories echo the vibrancy and sculptural qualities of clothes. While clutches boast exaggerated weaving, mini bags play with a greater sense of shape through tubular metallic tassels, playfully distorting their sense of size. Pared-back metal necklaces and mobile earrings complete the collection; forming sculptural objects' unto themselves.

Celebrating the innate need to create with the earth as a canvas, ‘Sculptura’ embodies a fusion of forms inspired by nature, reimagined through art.
