Romance Was Born
Fantasy steeped in vibrant imagery is the Romance Was Born mantra. Launched in 2005 by the design duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, the contemporary Australian label’s signature is imaginative pieces spotlighted by intricate hand-worked detailing, such as appliqués, embroidery, and abundant sequins. Cast in the lens of a cosmic cyber adventure, this spring season beautifully follows suit: Patterns by artist Jess Johnson accent girlie mini skirts, delicate lace blouses meet up with flowing pleated skirts, and slashed skirts nod to swinging chains. Though the collection brims with boundless whimsy, it’s perfect for everyday wear.
