Shiatzy Chen Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Paris Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections. RUNWAY NOW / RUNWAY NEW
With the mysterious black as canvas, fiery red, snowy white and that gentle skin tone interlaces, the classic contrasting colors of black, red and white coupled with the luxurious luster natural to the textiles highlight the theatrical tension inherent in this collection; the finishing touches of gaudy turquoise and multi-colored jacquard totems point to the cheerfulness of a play.
The contour of this season builds on the combination of clothing cultures from the east and the west, elevating classical elements with a modern look. The upper body speaks a variety of languages with the regal Baroque style coinciding with the cloud collar and elaborate headdress common to the Beijing Opera, laces and embroidery turning the band collar into an intricately layered collar and mantelet. Wavy curves and asymmetrical pleats are generously adopted in the entire collection, with the use of lantern sleeves echoing the theme by adding volume to the pieces.
