Here comes another delicious and my most favorite collection in the show by Wines Chan, the designer of WinZchan whose “A Passer-By” represents a kinda transitory love. Classical inspired, romantic and elegant are the best words to describe her works. The collection was based on inspiration from the poem “une passante” by Charles Baudelaire and the 15th century sculpture. The background projection featuring a collage of the images of classical Greek sculpture and Renaissance painting had said it all. I was entirely fascinated by a scene where 6 models in Chan’s delicate and beautiful dresses striking some nice solemn poses on the runway as if they were the ancient Greek goddesses accompanied by a flutist, which created a neoclassical feeling permeating the runway.
This collection brings a graceful impression and a neo-romance inspiration with chiffon, cotton and soft wool fabric in earth tone. Putting focus on pleats and integration of refined British tailoring, it expresses the perturbed reaction towards daily stimulations and pursuit of perdurable human relationship.
My 2 favorite stunning evening dresses in white and light gold (the one on the left) in peplos design, the Greek god’s robe-like dress bring Athena and Venus alive on the runway.
Part III is coming up soon.
