United Bamboo AW 10/11

Menswear meets womenswear at United Bamboo’s swanky show.

For Autumn/Winter 2010 Miho Aoki and Thuy Pham drew heavy inspiration from the fearless women of the 1930s, focusing on “the masculine part of feminine and the feminine part of masculine.” That entailed plenty of high waisted skirts, pleated trousers and wool overcoats, as well as draped silk dresses adorned with bows and embellished pencil skirts. The designers infused bit of flair to the collection with shimmering fabrics and delicate sequined details, and despite the popularity of the bob haircut in the ‘30s, the models slinked down the runway with wild, untamable crimped hair. The duo closed the show with a black velvet sweetheart dress that was both sweet and seductive.
