The Twinkle by Wenlan Spring 2010’s program described the collection as a “fashion mash up”. Floral prints creatively clashed with stripes, punches of neon and prints were paired with the classic black and white, and patterned sheers were layered over graphic prints. Designer, Wenlan Chia stayed true to her artistic aesthetic and showed a collection that had fashionistas, myself included, ready for spring.
Her collection had something for everyone -sheath dresses, short shorts, miniskirts that live up to their name and tapered pants that were debuted in a plethora of colors, textures and prints. The palette consisted of reds, blues, yellows and hot pinks, with black and white thrown into the mix. Wenlan’s mission of grinding the spirit of Yoko Ono with the attitude of Blondie into a wearable works of art was accomplished.
There were many looks that caught my attention, but my absolute favorite look from the collection was the silk cotton flower Myth dress. It was truly art in motion, the colors were rich and vibrant, the silhouette was perfect and I just feel like I need that dress in my closet for the Spring. Overall, the collection was eclectic, edgy and artistic, I loved it.
