As far as wardrobe staples go, a healthy assortment of well-tailored denim never goes astray. If like us, you're constantly on the hunt for denim pieces that are far from ordinary, you'll be pleased to know that iconic Australian designer Kym Ellery and cult-Los Angeles denim brand, SLVRLAKE have collaborated to bring us a collection of 70s-style flared denim pieces titled “The Future West”.
While you'll certainly be familiar with Ellery's namesake label, you may not be as well acquainted with SLVRLAKE – at least, not knowingly. The under-the-radar label is a strong favourite of supermodels such as Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk, recognised by stylists and celebrities alike for their luxurious and artisanal approach to Californian-denim. The brand first burst onto the scene in 2018; one of SLVRLAKE's intrigues is their ability to combine authentic vintage washes with familiar and modern designs and silhouettes.
Ellery's brand ethos is much the same – combining traditional approaches to tailoring and craftsmanship with avant-garde shapes and stylistic elements.

The covetable collection presents itself in the form of structured-yet-easy blue-wash denim dresses, shirting and jeans that have been conceptualised purposefully to be worn layered, as well as separately. The minimal, but undeniably impactful aesthetic of the collection is the perfect base for those wanting to adopt a more elevated approach to everyday dressing.
The beauty of Ellery x SLVRLAKE's classic silhouettes and versatile wash is that the pieces are seemingly effortless to style. The voluminous, Ellery-esque flares can be paired back with one of the most covetable fashion piece, the white tank; and team the collections standout piece – a denim re-imagination of the 90s corset – with one of the summer's trending statement bags for a warm-weather-ready look.
