Cho Cheng Spring 2010

chochengCho Cheng Spring/Summer 2010
Cho Cheng’s show was inspired by “a whimsical potpourri of the Japanese obi, Federico Fellini and Holly Golightly”. It was a sophisticated high-quality line definitely geared toward his loyal following of high profile clients. Luxurious fabrics were used like silk crepe, organza, satin, cotton sateen and a light wool crepe for jackets. A ruffle-like detail made of hand-fashioned silk petals was applied to the neckline, sleeves, cuffs and the front of dresses and honestly got a bit tiresome. The collection was predominately black and ivory, except for a finale of blue and cream evening dresses that were seemingly inspired by Tiffany boxes and included a grand finale white satin empire gown modeled by Coco Rocha. Some favorite looks include a sexy, yet classy black silk satin deep V-back dress and black tuxedo jacket with a silk vest.

Cho Cheng’s Fall 2009 presentation sings of Shanghai chic in the 1960s. Cheerful colors include turquoise, “cherry”, and “canary yellow”. There was heavy emphasis on luxurious suiting in the form of trim wool blazers with prim collars and French cuffs, velvet riding habits adorned with gold buttons, and jackets complete with satin lapels and lacy ruffles. The designer’s signature use of velvet is also seen in the cropped pleated pants and mini skirts. All looks were topped off with dapper blonde bobs, a chiseled appearance which brought an air of aristocracy.

The traditional qipao has also been translated into a more contemporary context, seen with the metallic tints and slinkier fit. Showstoppers include a series of “siren” gowns in champagne gold with sequins, baby pink complete with bow and train, and the white satin Sabrina gown. This statuesque silhouette was a vibrant throwback to old Hollywood glamour.
