Evening FW15 at Fashion Now, Beijing
I’ve been following Evening for a couple of seasons and really saw her potential this time around. Her use and contrast of shapes and textures were intriguing, and the focus seemed to be more on the clothing than the production of the show itself. Not to say I don’t like a good show, but it’s nice when there aren’t a lot of distractions.
I particularly enjoyed the mixing of the casual and more polished fabrics, with looks that were certainly more nighttime while the other pieces were, well, I guess also like nighttime (but like sleep time). There was a lot of pajamas-esque pieces, which are certainly not unsuitable for the Chinese market, but I really like how she contrasted this more laid-back materials with something that was slightly more formal… She struck a fun balance this season: cool clothes that are also (very) chill as well. I mean, you’ll be warm and comfy in a lot of these pieces, so what more could you ask for?
