Designer SHIATZY CHEN presented her Pre-Fall 2021 Charm Collection, that was inspired by the resilience and perseverance of plum blossom and it’s delicate yet fearless spirit. The collection features both menswear and womenswear looks. The women’s collection brings the chic silhouette of the 60s, and blends the colors of different flowering seasons, to explore modern feminine style. The men’s collection explores elegant scholar style, and mixes western with oriental, and modern with classic elements.
“The female collection sees a wide use of chic Western silhouette from the 60s, such as short dress, long jacket with short skirt and short pants, and short jackets. The two-piece presentation classic to SHIATZY CHEN is more spirited than usual, using different designs of original jacquard. Texture of the outer layer bears resemblance to seas of flowers as well as the rocks, while the inner layer is the powerful and handsome Oriental art print, responding to one another in the different layers and levels demonstrated. Combing a full spread of sequin, satin, silk wool, flannel, lace, and color-contrasting jacquard, glamorous glossy fabric assembled with check elements here and there, such as Tartan and net yarn embroidered flowers connecting to form a checkerboard pattern, wool felt with square punches, and square stitching mostly seen on down coats. Different methods are used to illustrate the classic Western texture, in combination with the Su embroidery technique SHIATZY CHEN is famous for and the detailed Oriental-style cutting.” – Shiatzy Chen
