Vietnamese designer Elise Kim made her Amsterdam Fashion Week debut on Thursday night. Sponsored by Dutch magazine Grazia she presented her collection Epiphenomenon (part 1 of a trilogy).

The show was all about the moment we start te fall asleep. A surreal abstraction of the moment we loose control of certain securities. It was in the music, the designs, the colors and the styling.

Kim showed white suits, dresses and coats with beautiful fur details on the sleeves and shoulders. Especially the mix of light transparent fabrics  (organza, silk) and the more heavy, winter-y materials (leather and wool) made the designs unique.

On long, slim and feminine designs the color palette ranged from white and nude to black and deep blue. And the added embroidered sequins and self-designed print made the looks extra special.

It was a strong collection and Elise probably made a good impression on many of the Amsterdam Fashion Week visitors.  We can’t wait to see what she has in stores for us the next two collection (also part of the trilogy).
