My beautiful friend and award-winning fashion designer Jimmy Lim presented his latest Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Starhill Gallery Fashion Week. Having previously being awarded the prestigious title of ‘Fashion Design Ambassador’ at New Zealand Fashion Week; this also marks Jimmy Lim’s 9th year showing in Asia’s fashion events and his 15-year commitment to his self-titled label.
Drawing inspiration from Lord Byron’s romantically haunting poem, “She Walks in Beauty”, Jimmy’s latest collection entitled ‘Beautiful Collision’ suggests that this season endears poetic romance, youthful grace and a fragile clash of unexpected appearances of the label’s usual DNA.
“She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.”
She Walks in Beauty (1813) ~ Lord Byron
This season evokes a dreamy confidence with a commanding collection of modern simplicity and contemporary cuts. Flowy dresses, baggy trousers and relaxed cut tops offer a nearly pyjamas-like sensual sense of dressing; while contrasting the softness with dramatic skirts and jackets with exaggerated lengths and sculpted details.
Jimmy carefully paired luxe fabric such as jacquard, sequined lace, multi fibre knit and comfortable natural fabrications of silk, cotton and linen in order to create a balancing effect of effortless style and comfort this season. The collection’s dark palate is disrupted with accents of cream, silver and bronze; an infatuated reference of the beautiful night sky.
The collection gets a high end polish with home grown shoe label, GIDDY UP. Proudly and uniquely handmade in Malaysia by Malaysian founders Pamela Chong and Christina Lee; introduces their signature ultra chic high heels – ‘Sky high comfort for the urban girl who treasures being head to toe perfect all day, all night’.
Jimmy Lim label is available at Lonely Dream Store, Telawi Square Bangsar.
