The Zang Toi SS16 show was spectacular—dramatic silhouettes and bold hues dominated the show. The veteran designer said that his collection was inspired by a recent trip to Santorini, and it becomes apparent amongst the crisp white, and shimmering blues that were displayed. Daytime looks include beautiful cotton and eyelet blouses, shimmering knitted mini dresses, hints of needlepoint, and suits that were tailored to perfection. The huge white hats were a lovely, and dramatic addition—perfect for shielding yourself from the hot Grecian sun. The evening looks were over-the-top, but in a good way. Beading, sequins, floating sheer fabrics, capes, and gowns were a feast for the eyes—pieces either flowed like water, or were some beautifully structured piece that exuded power, confidence, and femininity. All in all, the collection had something that anyone could love, even if some of it wasn't exactly practical for most people. I personally was inspired to try mixing and matching different textures, volumes, and shapes—this was like watching a masterclass in craftsmanship, and styling. These were some of my favorite looks from the collection, which ones did you like? I feel myself needing to recreate that flower headpiece from the final look, it was gorgeous! I'm so happy I was able to see these gorgeous clothes in person, they are simply stunning, and guaranteed to turn a few heads. Zang Toi really knows how to put on a show!
