Debuting in full modern royal regalia, Bernard Chandran’s Autumn/Winter collection got its audience anticipating a visual spectacular of breathtaking intricate designs paired with stylish innovations. Dato Bernard Chandran is famed for his works with the aristocrats and royal families of the Eastern world. Playing a crucial role in modernising traditional Far East fashions into luxurious yet contemporary attires, he resourcefully fused materials from metal sequins and ‘Songket’, a type of royal brocade to specially commissioned prints.
New silhouettes and new cut techniques melded in the rich metal embellishments, hard-worked embroidery and gem beadworks are introduced in this breathtaking collection.Think of easy movements and structured silhouette that comes alive with every turn. Overall looks that are lifted by a pair gorgeous 80s high-waisted pants with short and long landing and skirts in similar cut. Also making interesting cameos in the collection are new neck lines, voluminous sleeves, long coats in brocade and fur and 3-D bustier.
The menswear is equally impressive with its powerful play of fabrics yet modern aesthetic approaches. Its attractive colour palette of eye-catching egg-yolk yellow, air grey, powder blue, beige, pink and bronze are guaranteed to lighten up the dull weather.
