PHOTO DIARY: LAM GIA KHANG SS17 @ GEM CENTRE
Designer Prefers An Afternoon Soiree
True to recent form, Lam Gia Khang has hosted another intimate show at the Gem Center, eschewing the grand to debut his SS17 work amongst the mellow ambience of a sunny Saturday afternoon. In attendance were celebrities including Linh Nga, Thanh Truc Truong, Chi Pu, Hoang Thuy, Thanh Hang and Hoang Ku, who all watched the procession of models on the Gem Center's timber decking, and many of whom were dressed in items from the collection itself.
Inspired by journeys to faraway lands, Khang’s collection consists of 50 looks, brushed by his signature palette of white, black, and beige. Linen and khaki are the stars in terms of fabric, with highlights including a knitted fisherman’s net towards the end of the show.
The accessories were also hard to ignore of course - oversized floppy hats made of woven bamboo straws, fishing net handbags, gladiator shoes and sandals - all evoked thoughts of desert safaris and sun-drenched beaches.
