RAFW Runway Report: Lui Hon Spring/Summer 2010

I definitely noticed that now onto the fourth day of Fashion Week, the venue in general was getting quieter and quieter. At Lui Hon, the organisers waited nervously for the seats to fill up completely. For those who missed this show though, I can safely say it was their loss.

The collection was derived from the beautifully poetic theme, ‘so the wind won’t blow it away’ which was none more so reflective than in the delicate chiffon layered creations.

The black chiffon dress with fluttering dark beige material floating at the sides was a stand out.

Lui Hon provided a divine take on proportions, with the material often looking like it had simply been draped over the body, as if each piece had been made for that specific model.

A personal style favourite of mine at the moment is wearing loose t-shirts over the top of figure hugging dresses so I was delighted to see the body-skimming white dress with a grey top thrown over it, with the top almost resembling a vest worn backwards.

Lui Hon was one of the few shows I saw featuring menswear. An interesting piece was the men’s harem–style pants in monochromatic colours. These were coupled with shirts belted at the waist with string and loose, floating leather vests. Gladiator sandals provided the final touch to this unique look.

Lui Hon has made quite a name for himself since appearing on Project Runway back in 2008 and it’s no wonder why. In this show alone there was a mastery of so many different design techniques, some I would have trouble even finding a way to describe them as they’re so intricate and unique.
