Highland Whisper By Nguyen Thanh Dat
Fresh local talent launches earthy fashion collection
Young emerging fashion designer Nguyen Thanh Dat has created a collection of wistful menswear pieces entitled Highland Whisper, inspired by Vietnam’s southern highlands region.
The infinitely wearable collection features trousers, shirts and jackets in neutral khaki, beige and blue tones that the designer says are inspired by the idyllic village of Cù Lần, set at the foot of Langbiang mountain, 20km from Dalat.
Details include military insignia come tribal finishes on a green flap jacket, and ethnically inspired prints on a blue, short sleeved 1970’s style safari shirt. Beige utility trousers complete the practical collection, which is perfect for a weekend away camping.
