Han Chong launched Self-Portrait in 2013 and over a short span of time the brand has become synonyms to a girly-sweet brand. It is expensive yet affordable. This year the brand has consciously decided to change its vibe and bring along a more metropolitan feel.
“It’s a bit more tailoring this season, but with a Self-Portrait twist. It’s still fun but I wanted to have those pieces which are a bit more classy,” said Han Chong backstage after the show.
The show was opened by Hanne Gaby Odiele —a top model, a street style star, an advocate of the intersex community. Odiele opening the collection proved the efforts Self-Portrait is making to make themselves look more sharper, urban and versatile. The collection had a range of black and white silhouettes along with a palette of reds and navy blue. The collection spread across midi dresses and off-the-shoulder frocks, taffeta jumpsuits, coats and tuxedo inspired suits.
