Shiatzy Chen Runway Looks- SS19

Monday, 6pm in the Palais de Tokyo, right next to the Seine, we took a look at the latest collection of Shiatzy Chen, a Taiwanese luxury label, founded in 1978 by Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia aka the Chanel of Taiwan, who invited us to dream along. Dream and reality are closely related, even if dreams have the power to make the impossible possible. An imaginary mind is key and, as we can confirm, Chen let her fantasy flow in this year’s collection.

A fantasy world from the East was created with the expressional prints and embroidery on the clothing: jade rabbits, pomegranate trees laden with fruit, a symbol of blessings and Swinhoe’s pheasants, cranes and ducks stood out on the individual pieces. The various embroideries, but also the varied fabrics, such as jacquard, print, glossy materials, lace stripes and satin made the SS19 collection exciting to us. We saw pink, purple, sky-blue, but especially black and white on the blocked runway.

 
Shiatzy Chen Runway Looks- SS19


 

Black midi skirts were completed with a sewn in hem, showing off the brand’s logo; light white-embroidered coats were worn with short, matching-colored cycling shorts and sneakers tied up to the ankle. High collars adorned azure-blue dresses, which were given a feminine touch by belts wrapped around the waist. Child-like mahjong totems and white camera bags settled the looks, which in themselves already arose through silk fabrics and sparkling Swarovski crystals.

Our favorite outfit? Hard to say… I cannot decide between the simplistic, white bomber jacket over the identically coloured, romantic lace-dress and the night-blue, glittering maxi dress with tempting, high incision.
This light, but edgy-chic collection composed elegant elements, casual sneakers and that certain glamor of diamonds that we all dream about.
