Gothic strikes again – Shiatzy Chen PFW Fall 2016

One of the best ways to cultivate a sustainable wardrobe is by being aware of what’s to come before you buy…which leads me to revisit Fall 2016 Paris Fashion Week.

Gothic strikes again – Shiatzy Chen PFW Fall 2016

The developments of Shiatzy Chen, one of my personal favourite brands has been super interesting to watch. Launched in Taipei in 1978, Shiatzy Chen created a “New Look of China”.  The Spring 2016 collection was dominated by Chinese heritage and now Fall 2016 we see a European influence creep in more and more with the gothic theme prevailing throughout.DSC_0205

High collars, cinched in waists giving a super feminine feel to the collection and taking us all back to the gothic fashion scene.


Note skirts are fuller, and over the knee. Very feminine, making a statement all of their own.

Version 2

Flouncy white shirts and leather trousers are not new – but definitely here to stay – coming fall is all about femininity and showing shape.

Version 2 Yellow is seeing a new come back – love how a touch of China and gothic fashion all comes together in one dress!

Version 2 This coat is making a statement showing the true origin of Shiatzy Chen.
