Summer is a good time to experiment with your look and add more vibrant colour, or go for patterns and accessories. Indonesian designers have launched their Spring-Summer collection that might well match with your style preferences.
Biyan Spring-Summer 2018
Last year, prominent Indonesian designer Biyan showcased his Spring-Summer 2018 Collection, “Elsewhere”. With feminine touches like floral embroidery and a vibrant colour palette dominating the collection, Biyan incorporates sheer with print, creating light ready-to-wear in the loose silhouette construction.
Azure, coral, yellow, olive green, off white, and black are part of the colour spectrum applied to A-line beaded dresses. In this collection, Biyan challenged himself to deconstruct his signature cutting, turning the design more youthful and current. By taking a closer to its flimsy and transparent dresses, Biyan’s Spring-Summer Collection 2018 reflects the dynamic image of the modern woman, without losing its haute couture and fairy tale signature.
