Self-Portrait Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
We're still 50-50 when it comes to Self-Portrait's Fall 2019 collection. There were some nice elements to it, namely the tailoring and the cocktail looks, but there were also some that left a lot to be desired. It wasn't a bad outing, but it was far from his best!

Han Chong had too many ideas for his Fall 2019 line that it’s easy to get overwhelmed with what he eventually showed. This isn’t to say that his latest Self-Portrait collection is a bad one, but we do hope he edited and toned it down a bit this season. It’s one thing to be creative, it’s a different story altogether when a designer can’t hone that creativity to its fullest potential. Still, there were a lot of highlights in this show. For one thing, the tailoring here was commendable. Pinstriped suits and off-the-shoulder jumpsuits add some strong structure to evening looks, making them more appetizing for modern women today. But then again, the prints also stole the show, in a rather bad way this time. The polka-dots and the plaids were just so overwhelming, you didn’t want to look at them for a long time. And we hope we won’t see more of them come fall either!
