Cornelia Murr x Rachael Cassells
This season Romance Was Born reminds you to dream! London born, Los Angeles based singer songwriter Cornelia Murr is the star of our new campaign video. For Simple Gesture she created a sublime original musical score inspired by the collection’s narrative cues of being transported by dreams and fantasies. Her ethereal layers of vocal harmonies have been visually interpreted by director Rachael Pony Cassells.
The Simple Gesture collection imagines a young woman dreaming of escaping the monotony of 1950’s suburbia. Instead she longs for the intrigue and romance of the 18th century French Court idolising Marie Antoinette’s Versailles for its lavish fashions and extravagance. Looking out the window and across the patio at her row of neat tyre swan planters... she dreams those white swans are skimming gracefully across the ponds of the Queen’s Hamlet. In a simple gesture of royal elegance.
Let Cornelia Murr's harmonies bathe you in the unique possibilities created by honoring the unique layers of yourself and others! Dance into your dreams and a new decade with Simple Gesture’s embroidered detail, hand sewn sequin and beading placed artfully upon rich fabrics; of taffeta, silken jacquards, sheer organza, fine French linen and frothy chiffons.
