Spring-Summer 2014 – The collection denotes a retrospect of urban Shanghi with a twist of haberdashery elements. The modern is a corporation of city skylines, watercolour-like blooms and tight, symmetrical gridding. Parallel to the art and crafts movement, of embellishing and texturizing garments, cut-out embroidered pieces including A-line tops teamed with skater skirts and the grand finale: a see-though, ankle-length dress that cascaded down in tones from white to black.

The international feel was even more prominent from the collections inclusion of silk and organza, asymmetric gowns. Similarly, Japonisme was a root for the inspiration tree, from lotus inspired cutouts to origami-like folds within the frocks, tops and gowns. Minimal graphic touches were fashioned through black, abstract slashes or lines on buttonless jackets. The collection featured distinctive Chinese colouring too: a primary palette of greens, blue, vibrant orange and reds: a perfect solution for work, day or eveningwear.
