Blanc De Chine S/S 2012...Art Come to Life.

Achieving the delicate balance of breathing life to art into clothing is not easily done, but Chinese luxury brand Blanc De Chine execute this with pro-like precision. Inspired by ancient Ink and Wash painting techniques, the collection is like art 'ALIVE'; simply divine. For example, the last two looks of the collection both Qi Pao dresses are great example of balancing both the delicate silk fabric with the eye catching shimmers of sequinned beading.
Coming or going, even with its understated elegance both dresses command attention! On the men's front, it's the impeccable tailoring and top notch quality that draws one's eye. My personal favorites are the kimono wrap style jacket, the gray mandarin collar half zip jacket, and the one button brown overlap ensemble with the matching shorts. It is a definite testament to the designer when one can clearly see the quality of the garments, yet be in awe by the silhouttes and graceful tailoring. Clearly, Blanc De Chine masterfully executes this delicate dance between inspiration and actual presentation.
