Self-Portrait has quickly become a cool girl go-to in the special occasion category. For pre-fall, designer Han Chong explored more relaxed, romantic silhouettes than he had in previous collections. Done in soft blues and creamy whites, dresses with high necklines and bell sleeves channeled a prim, Victorian mood, while tiered ruffles, pleating and off-the-shoulder detailing kept things sensual and current. Chong also worked with print for the first time: a delicate, vintage-inspired floral on a pair of red and white dresses. The best group in the feminine lineup juxtaposed sporty, patterned guipure lace silhouettes with sheer, floral-embroidered overlays that resulted in a novel 3-D effect.
