Fash­ion af­fil­i­a­tion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

com­bi­na­tions, all the bet­ter to catch a cool­ing sum­mer breeze.

There were frills too – one of the trends of the sea­son – big ones on the di­ag­o­nal of one-shoul­der dresses and clever lit­tle un­ex­pected ones trail­ing from the col­lar.

Ear­lier this year McCart­ney de­clared that her new lux­ury syn­thetic leathers were as good as the real thing, and in Paris she sent out a pair of high­waisted, pecan-coloured Skin-Free-Skin trousers and a tight black top over a black or­ganza dress ap­pliqued with leop­ard pat­terns. – AFP Re­laxnews DI­VER­SITY is a much raised is­sue in fash­ion, that of­ten re­flects well in fash­ion imag­ing but not so much on the prod­ucts it­self. Ja­panese ba­sics mag­nate Uniqlo scored them­selves a fea­ture as part of “Items: Is Fash­ion Mod­ern?”ex­hi­bi­tion by The Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art. En­ti­tled Eman­ci­pa­tion/Mod­esty/Re­bel­lion, it em­pha­sises on the cor­re­la­tion be­tween fash­ion and so­cio­cul­tural af­fairs, which puts 111 in­flu­en­tial gar­ments and ac­ces­sories from the past cen­tury in the spot­light. MoMA’s first ex­hi­bi­tion on fash­ion since 1994 has cho­sen gar­ments from Hana Ta­jima for UNIQLO col­lec­tion, namely the AIRism Printed Stole and In­ner Hi­jab. Fo­cus­ing on flared sil­hou­ettes, fash­ion de­signer Hana Ta­jima’s col­lec­tion is ef­fort­less chic poised in grace­ful el­e­gance, em­ployed us­ing AIRism for a breath­able fab­ric. Stay­ing true to Uniqlo’s com­mit­ment, they have suc­cess­fully cap­i­talised on the di­verse lifestyle and cul­tural frame­work by rep­re­sent­ing the Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ties through mod­est wear. The ex­hi­bi­tion is from Oct 1 to Jan 28. – Ja­son Lim
