Back in black


Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

The dar­ling of the fash­ion world took a brave step away from his usual party-dress ter­ri­tory, putting touch at the top of his agenda with fring­ing, fur and feath­ers across a se­ries of wildly dif­fer­ent looks. Al­ber El­baz opened his show with a mil­i­tary theme: sol­dier hel­mets bob­bing with tall feath­ers. Plumage turned to fring­ing in a shaggy coat lay­ered over a bouclé suit fringed at the neck, waist and hem. Fring­ing later melded into bead­ing on 1920s-style flap­per dresses em­bel­lished at the shoul­der, side seam and hem. One had a fringed bib high­light­ing shoul­ders and waist. Later, hem­lines grew longer in Downton Abbey- style Ed­war­dian frock coats and long skirts with ruf­fles and pleats. Long gloves and wide-brimmed hats dec­o­rated with feath­ers brought the col­lec­tion full cir­cle.
