Always on the look out for emerging talents, today our discovery takes us to Singapore where tailored Women’s RTW fashion brand Max Tan is based.
ABOUT MAX TAN
Serious but never severe, minimal but never simple, fragile but never weak. It is how Max Tan defines his work as a designer. Maximizing on minimalistic ideas, much of the label’s attention is paid to tailoring and draping. Playing with volume, modifying shapes, oversized, undersized, deconstruction and reconstruction while blurring the line between masculine and feminine silhouettes to provide women with an alternative and quiet fashion lifestyle.
ABOUT MAX TAN SPRING/SUMMER 15
For his spring/summer 15 collection, Tan introduces the abstract concept of everything probable and impossible. The limitless, the unbounded, and the unconventional. The idea of creating hybrid garments with no hems but lengthened and flipped up, transforming into another garment as seen on the shirtdress below extended into a jacket bodice, morphing a two-piece garment into one.
Sleeves are conjoined together with fabrics flowing one side to another, leaving a drape behind the wearer.
Inspired by the curves of the Infinity symbol, curved seams are tactically used to create the main silhouette of the collection; Volumes. Pieces are hung onto the wearer’s body lightly; yet creating big shapes and forms.
Tan’s pieces are definitely for women that are not afraid to take their fashion taste to a new level. Fashionistas that are eager to experiment with androgynous pieces and make bold statements. At any rate, please let us know what you think of Tan’s latest collection. Follow the brand on Facebook and Instagram.
