Angel Chen SS17 Presentation
Entering the venue of the presentation, you are immediately met with a mysrious Japanese vibe with dim lighting and cherry blossom trees depicted on the large backdrop screen. Once everyone arrived for the first showing of the presentation, a group of five masked Japanese drummers entered the stage and opened the show.
After the dramatic drumming, we were introduced to the first garments of her SS17 collection, which consisted of the raincoat/boxer kind of outerwear, with embroidery on the back of them, a big upcoming trend for sure. After this, we were met with a sparkly ensemble, with bright coloured garments made of sequins.
Moving further with the collection into the presentation, there was a definite vibe of Japanese culture within the garments, the more modern than historic one (Harajuku-like), but the way it has been accessorised you do see the historic culture, especially in the shoes worn. Many platform slippers which were inspired by the styles of a Geisha. Detail to garments also had Japanese features, such as the denim with embroidered seafood along the leg.
In total a very creative presentation, truly bringing a peculiar feeling to the viewers and leaving them with intrigue.
Another great collection by Angel Chen.
And... That's it!
