Ladies Who Lunch: Zang Toi Spring 2017!

Zang Toi celebrates women in every collection with garments that are luxurious, wearable and above all visually beautiful.  If it is sophisticated style you are looking for, look no further than Zang Toi.

Zang Toi Spring 2017 transports us to France with two different inspirations.  First he takes us to Paris and the elegant Parisian woman is his inspiration. Then he takes us to Giverny with a floral inspired homage to Monet.

Zang Toi’s Spring 2017 collection is all about lifestyle, luxurious fabrics and flattering silhouettes.  For daywear the color palette is a sophisticated mix of blacks and greys with pops of lilac and dark violet.  For eveningwear, Zang goes all out with textured embroideries, and lilac and wisteria embellished garments.

Zang Toi knows his customer well and delivers once again a collection that is elegant, sophisticated and visually stunning.

Ladies Who Lunch: Vivienne Tam Spring 2017!

I have been a fan of designer Vivienne Tam for years and each season she continues to draw me in and keep me captivated.  One reason her collections are always so exciting is because of the level of passion and excitement that she has for her work!

A trademark of Vivienne Tam’s is the bridging of Eastern and Western cultures, which makes reference to both in a blend that is both modern and global.   Vivienne Tam’s collections usually draw their inspiration from Eastern culture and then marry it with a Western sensibility.

For Spring 2017, Vivienne Tam completely surprised me by taking her inspiration from a very Western influence: the city and culture of Houston, Texas.  Vivienne Tam captured the vibrancy of Houston with bold colors, a mix of interesting laces and fabrics and the use of NASA, Houston Rodeo and sports team logos.  In a reverse of her usual style, she took the very western inspiration of Houston and married it with her own Asian sensibility.

Vivienne Tam Spring 2017 celebrates the diversity of Houston in a collection that is totally Vivienne Tam and is sure to not only please her fans, but create a new fan base as well!
