BLANC DE CHINE
* presented at the Blanc de Chine 'Flagship' boutique (673 Fifth Avenue), New York: October 14th, 2010.

As soon as you walked into the glossy boutique, one instantly sensed culture and elegance; the downstairs-area glittered with fashion editors and writers, stylists and many other multi-talented personalities.
Entering this transcendental atmosphere, we caught glimpses of hand-crafted jewelry and collaborations of silk-kimono style garments. As the show began (lights, bright and fresh), the women's wear pieces began simple and elegant, then transcended into aquatic colors and patterns reminiscent of blurred photos recreated in sequin detailing.
The models gracefully floated down the runway, in Mandarin-collars, sheer kimono sleeves, and sequined ankle-grazing gowns; tres elegant!
The men's wear pieces were monochromatic, ranging from black, navy, maroon and also black-and-white combinations, taking a very simplistic and streamlined approach. After witnessing this collection, it's easy to say that anyone -who adores timeless quality- would appreciate Blanc de Chine's unique and classic attire ;-)
