Designer: Han Chong Inspiration: An urban woman who enjoys travelling and exploring.With his 350 points of sales throughout the world, the English brand took inspiration from the versatile women that is found within Self-Portrait, always seen through a pretty evening dress worn whatever the season.Collection: For Winter 2019, suits are reinterpreted in a more feminine and sensual way like the tuxedo jacket that becomes a dress, with pleats at the bottom and the elegant jumpsuit. The designer adds a mix of prints such as colourful checks with two-tone flowers. Lurex shines and yellow velvet is a winner. Numerous details such as draped shoulders and lace that finishes shorts and dresses. Note: Flat boots with pointed toes + silvery red seen especially on a dress adorned with sequins.Interview with Han Chong:This season I do alot of reinvents and tailoring, like how we do tailoring in a Self-Portrait way. So it always has a twist so it’s younger so you want to have fun so for example like this is like a blazer but with our signature and it’s a long dress. So with a pleat insets so that’s our way of doing kind of tailoring.I tried to do this like keeping a good balance on enough design detail but it’s still fun and people who wear it feel really good in it.I like the idea of like quite a simple print with good colour and then for example like fourreau with monochrome.
