Khoon Hooi has recently released their Fall 2021 Main Collection titled, “The Cosmos”, which embarks on space travel with a sense of optimism and escapism from the bleak pandemic. For this line-up, the designer put together a collection of galactic and celestial looks where intriguing feminine forms and bubble shapes combine to grasp his fantasy of ‘occasion dressing’ in space.
This collection will consist of jaw-dropping gowns, stunning dresses and easy-to-wear separates with intriguing details that captured the magnificence of the celestial wonders, dazzling colours of nebulae formations and space rocket dynamics. The planets are also expressed in a retro voluminous balloon hemline – which can be seen on a variety of evening looks.
From lamé to futuristic two-toned taffeta and galaxy-like sequins, there’s an illuminating shine in this season’s fabrication and a colour palette that stretched through the galaxy’s cosmic shades from milky dusk to tangerine dawn and deepest, bluest midnight. Mirroring the theme are constellation-inspired beading and star burst motifs.
According to Khoon Hooi, there are four HERO pieces in the collection as well:
- “Maia” Voluminous ball gown in bright fuchsia taffeta with exaggerated cape sleeves, enhanced with a double bow velvet belt.
- “Luna” A striking sleeveless cape evening gown in glossy Jade taffeta, highlighted with sparkling crystal embellishments and comet-like black bow pin.
- “Ophelia” Strapless gown in iridescent brocade with ruffle detail on fitted corset bodice, embellished with celestial clusters of diamante.
- “Gaia” Statuesque futuristic gown in ivory shine taffeta, crafted with creative folds and enhanced with a diamante rhinestone mesh buckled belt.
