Shanghai Tang Spring Summer 2010

Shanghai Tang Spring Summer 2010
During the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, on 600 Madison Ave, Shanghai Tang hosted an open house, a celebration of the Chinese New Year, debuting the Spring Summer 2010 Collection, "Love Restraint."

A sensual artistic collection that embraces the euphoria of love with a sense of restraint & creative defiance.
Majestic mountains, bold optical art of the 60s in Hong Kong and patterns of Peranakan ceramics. With modern & distinctive sensibilities, reflecting the Chinese culture & the value of restraint, resulting in a harmonious blend of diverse inspiration.

The materials were lavish, almost liquid... the velvet hand ran through my fingers. The silks shimmered & the Linens soft in structure. I especially enjoyed the men's suite, all Mandarin in style. It is nice not to have to wear a tie everyday. Mandarin collared suites give you this opportunity... of course you could tie on a scarf or cravat & look very dashing.

    Wow - that sounds gorgeous. I have to check out their Madison Avenue store...I've always loved the mandarin collar!
