Wearing Cres E Dim 'straitjacket' jacket, Pauline Ning porcelain chain print blouse, Pauline Ning nude organza skirt, Zara wedges and Charles & Keith satchel bag
I'm in love with this Pauline Ning look which I wore with oriental details. It is from the A/W2012 ‘PORSELEN’ collection, which Pauline designed in collaboration with Asian Civilisations Museum. The collection was inspired by a china bowl and plate, which is part of a permanent exhibition housed at the museum. The blouse is beautiful in its details - the wide peterpan collars, with porcelain china print on the sleeves and cut with a slight peplum flare. The nude organza skirt is folded and flares out to invoke the look of a Chinese scroll.
The grey "straitjacket" is picked from MOOTTA.COM, which is a online multi-label store stocked with a selection from Korea's best designers. I really like Cres E Dim for his beautifully constructed looks. He is very strong in deconstruction and reconstruction to create strong architectural lines and silhouettes to flatter the body. Though most of his designs are rather clean and streamlined, he dabbles in digital print to create interesting effects and play with fabrics and textures.
MOOTTA is currently having a crazy sale with selected pieces at a whooping 80% off in celebration of their first year anniversary. Simply key in HAPPY1YEAR at checkout to enjoy the discount! This is really a deal not to be missed, because the clothes that MOOTTA stock are not only well designed, but also of high quality. I've always like Korean designers for their distinctive aesthetic - modern, playful with color and prints and very strong in their silhouettes, overall construction and finishing.
