The Qi Pao (or cheongsam) is a combination of Oriental tradition that is both classy and elegant, retaining its feminine charms that have lasted till today.
To celebrate Lunar New Year on 28-29 January 2017, we are launching a new, exclusive collection with a re-interpretation of the Qi Pao by using silks, silk organzas and other beautiful fabrics. Colors are vivid and rich while the prints are culled from Chinese-inspired motifs to re-worked florals, giving the Qi Pao a totally urban and fashion forward look.
Below are some highlight of the cheongsam from the collection.
The Dendrobium Stefanie Sun is the inspiration behind this cheongsam.
Using a giant red dot do represent Singapore, the dendrobium is used on a graphic inspired look for a totally hip and futuristic expression of the flower.
This is to underline that our Orchid can and does look modern.
The second time the dendrobium is used is in a play of our different national flower. This second cheongsam also in pure silk is called the Rose among the Roses.
Against a black background, the many Orchids stand out in dark relief & again the dendrobium is highlighted in white with its signature yellow in its center.
A black cheongsam has purple and fushia pops of color – a preview of Sping Summer 2017 as these 2 hues are going to be hot.
The graphic prints are fluid and eye catchy, yet feminine.
Another exclusive floral theme. This time small florals are used to soften a bias checked theme for this pure silk cheongsam. The unique detail is the solid colored part that forms a ‘bolero’ on the front.
A traditional cheongsam given a brand new direction. The red section features traditional print that is blown up and just on one side, a turquoise print is used to give it an unexpected twist.
Fresh Springs of Orchid bloom across this silk cheongsam and is accented by bright blue trims to give this dress a pop of color. The feel is fresh & welcoming of Spring.
Mystic of the Orient will be launched by December 2016 and prices range from S$289-S$389.
