Shiatzy Chen, Guardians of a Feminine Future
Shiatzy Chen RTW 19- Fall-winter 2019 collection
Shiatzy Chen- (show) March, 4, 2019 Palais Tokyo, Paris
The theme for Shiatzy Chen’s Fall/winter 2019/20 show shown under a colossal red moon at the Palais Tokyo was “Guardian”. From under the paper moon, models glided onto the catwalk, feminine, sexy, with a touch of 90s futurism. Their look, combined with harnesses, survivalist backpacks and doc-martins became hard-edged independent yet feminine earthlings of the future.
Filly ruffled short dresses were followed by sleek black 90s looks. These were often joined with a body harness or heavy leather belts complete with ornamental buckle or knee length lace-up boots. The highlight was in standout lip-stick red in the form of leather bowling bags or tiered prom dresses, sporty short-waisted, satin bomber jackets, and woolen capes.
Under the glowing astral sphere where the models came, the orb seemed as a guardian over both angels and demons. Or were it they, these devils and saints who came to guard us?
It was another strong and beautiful offering from Shiatzy Chen, for an independent post-me-too woman.
