SELF-PORTRAIT STUDIO – Trendy, savvy and affordable
31/03/2014 • June Huang
For those who’ve been to our store at Kandahar Street – I am sure that Self-Portrait Studio needs no further introduction from me.
But let me introduce you to the creative head behind Self-Portrait Studio. He’s no other than Han Chong, the former creative director of contemporary British line Three Floor.
The Central Saint Martins-trained, London-based talent debuted his eighteen-piece collection late last year with excellent feedbacks. Prices for his dresses range from SGD300 to SGD450 and I got to say, that’s pretty affordable for the intricate work that goes into his pieces.
Imagine lace paneling on trumpet skirts, laser cut tees and bustier beneath a sheer framework and did I mention that his pieces are oh so flattering?
“I like to deconstruct classic shapes and develop these into new, more playful and mischievous designs” – Han Chong
For the ladies who have managed to grab one of his gorgeous pieces off our racks, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. For those who did not manage to take a look at his debut collection in store, fret not as we wait eagerly for his High Summer ’14 collection, which plays with the transparency of fabrics to give the illusion of layers to create a more relaxed look for Summer.
Self-Portrait Studio High Summer ‘14 collection coming soon to et-i-kit on Kandahar Street!
