Originating in Taiwan in 1978, Shiatzy Chen now has the reputation of being the Chanel of Taiwan.
This is my 6th season of visiting their shows. Paris Fashion Week always strikes as having a huge Eastern influence. Very noticeable however is how Shiatzy Chen have gradually adapted their collections giving them a more Western feel.
The SS 2018 collection is officially called “Linkage”. Depicting the image of those that walked the Silk Road, creating opportunities for dialogue between Eastern and Western culture and art. Followed by a love of the 1930’s style.

East meets West with Shiatzy Chen – Paris Fashion Week SS 2018
Puff-sleeved design dominated many shows this season.
Lace details not to be underestimated. Keep any pretty lace pieces you currently own.
If in doubt wear black. Note the puffed sleeves coupled with lace detail.
There is something “Chanel-like” about this suit no matter which way you look!
Fucsia pink already popped up in street style and here it is again. A sure sign this colour is here to stay!
Pink and red. The former forbidden combination is now as accepted as black and white.
For those pastel tone lovers.
I never thought I would see denim in a Shiatzy Chen collection and yet here it is. A real sign of East meeting West if ever there was one!
Note the varying jacket lengths, cropped or long. Which is your favourite?
This is a perfect example of teaming Eastern details with the Western cut of the blazer.
Almost every show this season had a touch of yellow. The cold shoulder theme replaced with the insertion of sheer fabric – I love this!
The dressed up jumpsuit. This piece is becoming as staple as the little black dress!
