One main idea: light diffraction, inspiration coming from fractals, triangles, minerals and broken glass…

When i met Christine two years ago, i discover a very talented designer, a young women devoted to her work with passion and discipline. Her last collection showed during PFW at Designers Apartment is the perfect illustration of that.

As Christine says, she follows a red line and then dig it until she use up the topic. A methodology she learned at Duperré, school of design and fashion in Paris and she applied to her work from Mandarin Oriental

Christine Phung’s collection for the next season show us how a concept spreads on fabrics, bags and shoes, but also on the colors, the shape (see the pleats treated as a ray of light with a bright color) and the digital patterns manipulated « pixels by pixels ».
