New season SELF-PORTRAIT, expect the unexpected

By Tuesday, August 23, 2016 0 Permalink 0

Han Chong never fails to surprise, keeps pushing the envelope and, with every single collection, makes the fashion world, and especially his loyal fans, fall in love all over again.

The new season SELF-PORTRAIT is another of his odes to lace, but as always, you can expect the unexpected.

Dresses and statement separates (yesss, the cropped bomber is included in our edit) this time combine the brand’s signature guipure and intricate lace detailing (think lace panels, lace trim inserts, embroidered lace, elaborate combination of laces…) with on trend layered and multidimensional graphic silhouette, floral prints, beautifully executed contrasts, delicate pleats, and scalloped edges created by following the motif of each of the selected floral laces.

Bravo, Han! We take our hats off.
