Pushing 30. Lover of fashion. The Creative Advisor to Malaysian fashion designer Alia Bastamam. I am also a writer, an amateur "photographer", party animal, personal style advisor, morning fiend, shy Lion and only son.
Thoroughly enamoured by Simons’ Dior Couture spring 2013. By no surprise.
The seemingly deconstructed Valley of the Doll ensembles with their completely unordinary combination of colours. You were constantly losing balance on the fine line between classic and contemporary and modern and, of course, futuristic. At times, it didn’t seem like a collection, but an assembly of the most amazingly put-together wardrobe. Pants. What appeared to be leggings/boots/heels/pants. The evening skirts that wondrously balloon open as opposed to a sensual flick of a mermaid-cut. Suddenly on one bride, the mod-ish top she wears is actually slashed open at the back and softly resting precariously on her shoulders. Of course with the Million Dollar Mermaid swimming cap veil.
The simplicity of a look; the complexity of its formation. After all, it’s Simons and you see things beautifully like that; you can only imagine the deep crevices of design and creation he dug.
