Apu Jan autumn/winter 2017 collection catwalk show for LFW
The Apu Jan AW17 show was a serene and sensual start to the morning, and the garments demonstrated a quiet elegance that is quite rare in this day and age.
Through the pleated flowing skirts, chinese national costume inspired silhouettes and exposed backs the garments aim to reveal the individual’s feminine charm. Apu Jan is known for wanting to intertwining oriental folk tales and stories with contemporary wearability, imbuing his creations with a hidden element of depth.
The collection consisted of long streamlined coats, elegant gowns with prints, trousers and pinstripe jackets. A lot of it would be suitable as office wear and undoubtedly many women will pine after some of the key pieces.
Hailing from Taiwan, Apu Jan has succeeded in appearing at the international fashion stage and appealing to a global audience. The garments reference fantasy worlds in a clever way that keeps the garments grounded to reality. There is a focus on craftsmanship and the fine detailing of the garments which is not diverted by any fluff.
The collection is kept straightforward and clear, which gives its design integrity credit. With the colours kept muted at navy blue, ivory and a hint of army green, it was the flawless finished and beautifully flowing silhouettes that gained the spotlight.
