Summer Love: Highlights from Shanghai Tang Women’s SS17


Fresh blossoms, delicate hues and fluid silhouettes embrace Shanghai Tang Spring Summer 2017 women's collection, signaling the end of cold winters and the start of new life. The gorgeous collection proliferates in an abundance of floral bursts and Oriental vibes, true to the brand’s signature vibe, from a nostalgic recollection of imperial Suzhou gardens to an unravelling of the mysterious Wisteria and romantic Chinese blossoms.

Indeed, the cascading flowers adorn each outfit with the vibe of breezy summers, whether in the lightness of a poly-silk parka or the vivid elegance of a long silk gown. Peace and tranquility fill this collection with the inspiration of light and its delicate ways, from wispy silk pieces to soft lace. An airy atmosphere surrounds the collection in chrysanthemum cloque, peony jacquard, and even in classically summery pieces like palm jacquard cotton knit coat, pullovers and parkas.

You might even be reminded of fine Chinese ceramics in some pieces, and you will be entirely right – the exquisite Celadon vases and its characteristic finish certainly inspires the collection’s graphic translucent mint green porcelain.

A carefree touch embraces this collection, indeed, whilst 3-dimensional wild flower embellishments and punchy floral accents dress the collection’s significant pieces, whether in small corners of simple separates, or in the complex detailing, crafted with masterful attention.

Of course, whilst the collection unravels in summery pastels and spring-like blossoms, the pieces also unravel with vivacious vibes and a fantastic pop of color with a romantic twist.
