The First Chapter collection from Shiarjo uses delicate fabrics and soft tones for a feminine, minimalist look. But there is more to the story; something is concealed, something is revealed.
First Chapter is inspired by Korean artist Shan Hur. His work explores the hidden in architecture, sculptures that allow us glimpses of unexpected forms within familiar planes.
With First Chapter we question the obvious and seek the hidden. A gesture reveals unexpected form and structure. An extravagant bell sleeve blooms from a stark white cuff. A knot twists across sheer organza. Taking a step opens a peek-a-boo slit showing pleats in the flare of a leg.
First Chapter celebrates the soft and gentle side of women. First Chapter also revels in their inner strength and independence.
Nothing is quite as it seems.
