Elka Collective brings its signature low-key luxe to James Street
Adored for its tailored-yet-relaxed aesthetic, Melbourne’s Elka Collective has ventured north to open its first Queensland-based boutique in Fortitude Valley’s James Street. The store’s opening coincides with the launch of the label’s summer collection Nomade, which is inspired by the unique Australian landscape.
If your approach to your personal aesthetic (and life in general) is effortless and relaxed with a focus on quality, you’ll find your fashion kindred in Elka Collective. The label is known for its luxurious natural fabrics and garments that are as versatile and uncomplicated as the women who wear them. Classic tailoring meets an easy-to-wear sensibility and timeless pieces have a pared-back contemporary appeal, think wide-leg culottes, essential summer dresses and long-line blazers. The latest collection Nomade is grounded by soft cottons, silks and linens with a palette mirroring desert plains, vivid sunsets and endless skies.
The beautiful boutique was designed by interior architect Chris Aplin and creative director Courtney Price – the creative minds behind the Elka Collective boutiques in Melbourne – and offers earthy and rustic vibes with imperfect sandstone, smooth marble, rich timbers and reclaimed terracotta tiles that reminisce the texture-rich backdrops for Nomade.
