The brand’s signature feminine and cheerful designs were juxtaposed with slick options in the fall collection.
Known for its pretty and affordable hyper-feminine cocktail and special-occasion dresses, Self-Portrait expanded its offering with more categories. For fall, designer Han Chong juxtaposed lace frocks and silk plissé dresses featuring capelet details with PVC slicker coats, tailored pieces injected with an equestrian feel and glamorous separates with an Eighties’ vibe.
Chong’s effort to take a step forward in evolving the brand’s familiar feminine and dressed-up aesthetic was admirable. However, the signature lace frockscut in different silhouettes and sometimes embellished with rhinestones were definitely the standouts of the lineup.
