Ladies Who Lunch: Zang Toi Fall 2015!

Designer Zang Toi’s collections are all about luxury and beauty.  Season after season, I am mesmerized by his couture collections that exude a mixture of beauty, style, elegance and sophistication.

For Zang Toi’s Fall 2015 collection, he took his inspiration from a winter visit to Venice.  As always, Zang Toi captured the essence of Venice using his inspiration to shape the look and mood of the collection without being literal and costumey.

Primarily using earth tones that reflect the cityscape of Venice during winter, the collection is a lush melange of greys, blacks and taupes with a finale splash of bronze metallic.  As  usual, Zang Toi crteated the collection using the finest in luxe fabrics from Loro Piana wools to silk satin.

Having just celebrated his 25th Anniversary in the industry, Zang Toi Fall 2015 delivered an awesome collection that shows this master designer has at the very least another 25 years to continue to wow us!

Ladies Who Lunch: Son Jung Wan Fall 2015!

Korean designer Son Jung Wan has one of the shows that I most look forward to each season.  Son Jung Wan always intrigues me with creative construction and drapes, and interesting fabrics and colors.

For Fall 2015, Son Jung Wan drew her inspiration from the 1950’s MGM films and the fashion pho tographs of Gordon Parks, resulting in a collection that is all about glamour and romance. 

The important fabrics in the collection are meri no wool, knits, leather, fur and the introduction of metallics that emphasized the inspiration of the collection.

Son Jung Wan’s color palette for the season is a perfect mix of autumnal fuschias, oranges, greens, golds, silvers and earth tones.

Son Jung Wan’s Fall 2015 Collection showed off the designer’s amazing talent with a collection that is as exciting as it is elegant and stylish.
