What’s fun about fashion? It’s getting to experiment with different aesthetics in your exploration of self-expression. At least, this is what Han Chong of Self-Portrait understands it to be. His Spring 2019 show in New York was a celebration of all things graphics. A multitude of prints, all draped, cut, sewn, pleated, and what-have-you, together in an interplay of eclectic ideas and vivid statements. Interestingly enough, the silhouettes harkened back to the 30s and 40s, while the prints looked like they were plucked out of the 60s and 70s. All four decades were definitive in giving women more freedom in fashion and the agency to be themselves. And fortunately, for those who may not be in favor of the eye-popping play of prints that relatively stole the show, a few toned-down looks—still retro in silhouette but current in their vibes—allowed today’s women to simply look divine and effortlessly elegant wherever they go.
