Florals were never limited to the spring season solely; Han Chong made it a crucial element of Self Portrait's Fall/Winter 2016 collection. It's been a year since the designer launched his label, and throughout Self Portrait made a lasting impression both with consumers and celebrities. Chong mainly used laser-cut and tulle fabrics with previous collections, but with Self Portrait's latest offering appliqué was a main component. Textures provided an excellent dimension to the pieces, magnifying on the tapered silhouettes. Although the colour palette was quite limited in terms of range, the designer was able to work with monochrome, blue, maroon, and a few hints of orange and pale pink to create a wonderful contrast. His signature lace was elevated this time around, prioritising details to create a deep-rooted image as a whole. The presentation would've been a hit if not for the neoprene neck-tie's, which were absolutely out of tune, and gives the impression that styling was weak. They should've been replaced with jewellery in order to comply with the theme of the collection. Despite that, Chong never fails to impress with Self Portrait.
