I absolutely ADORED this collection. J'ADORE J'ADORE J'ADORE.
A dash of vermillion tulle peeking out from underneath the hemline of a beautiful floor length dress with an elegant neckline.
Wide kimono belts in a vibrant coral added a sense of drama to the simple tailoring.
This softly structured mustard and teal bag would be absolutely perfect for spring (no need to wait until A/W!).
Swathes of relaxed fabric, delicate tailoring and a touch of 1920s glamour made this a truly unforgettable catwalk show. Stunning flashes of crimson were balanced with earthy shades of blacks, teals, yellows and tans.
The shoes were starkly basic in design and allowed the collection to speak for itself. They reminded me of ballet shoes. I think that a flashy shoe would have ruined the whole aesthetic.
I was snapping away like my life depended on it trying to capture every little detail: the glint of a silver accessory, the flash of skin showing through a cut-out detail at the back of a top, the structured clutches and the slouchy shoulder bags, the exaggerated sashes and obi belts...
A futuristic fabric gave an edginess to the designs.
The last model, a glimmering geisha-pixie-doll, stopped and stood quietly before the final walk as if to allow the beauty of the collection to sink in.
A frission of energy ran through the room as we waited for Ji Cheng to take her bow.
