Sean Suen Spring/Summer 2018
Sean Suen presented a cohesive collection of sharp, elegant tailoring with a casual bend and languid mood. These clothes had an indulgent quality about them, with extra flourishes such as origami belts and detached collars enhancing the designer's penchant for lavish luxuries also evident in a robe that befits even the most eccentric millionaire. Suen's strengths were in his exact precision with cut, particularly the fluid pants and strict jackets which created a faultless tension. The palette of ivory, icy blue and soft pink instilled a clinical aura that clashed early on with one of the few prints of the collection - a jagged, multi-colored stripe pattern that fared well with the lightwash denim. The glossy leathers and shiny satins were a bonus for a collection that centered on fabric manipulation and ease.
