Owning a piece of Phoung My’s new collection — Sayonara can be compared to owning your own power in all the various stages of a woman’s life– purity, love, power. Everything from the hair, makeup, and even the intro of this collection was breathtaking at the showing during New York Fashion Week.
The collection seemed to pay homage of various designer greats such as Mr. Dior himself with the well-structured dresses, and tapered jackets. Down to the hats. But yet very modern and futuristic– all while giving me various symmetrical cuts that I have seen in certain pieces from Comme de Garcon– representing power and protection.
Feminine but very bold with a masculine feel to some of the pieces. Item after item there was something about each piece that made them very desirable.
I love the choice of colors and the order in which it was presented in her runway show. Love the red in the show– the power of love. Bravo Phuong.
