Blanc de Chine Spring 2013 Womenswear and Menswear Collection PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Blanc de Chine - Photo by Luxury ExperienceAs we move towards spring and summer 2013, cruises and destination weddings come to mind, and the Blanc de Chine collection for men and women features easy care fabrics of silk and poly crepe, and good-looking designs that will travel with style. Luxury Experience saw the runway collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

 

Womenswear

Elegant style and grace are the hallmarks of Blanc de Chine, which "refers to the eight fundamental design elements of simplicity, serenity, harmony, purity, subtlety, sensuality, functionality, and comfort."

2013 marks their 20th anniversary and the emphasis for their Spring Summer 2013 is on "Blanc de Chine color - a luscious, creamy shade of off-white/beige." Other colors in the collection include navy, electric blue, and black.

A few of the formal highlights of the spring summer 2013 collection included their Ladies' Sequin Long Drape Qi Pao, Ladies' Black Sequin Qi Pao, and Ladies' Long Sequin Qi Pao with Pleats, made of lightweight sequined fabric to create elegance and movement, without the heaviness.

Electric Blue made the collection pop as shown in their Ladies' Electric Blue Pleated Layered Tunic with Beaded Collar Detail paired with Navy Silk Skinny Pant, and a Ladies' Electric Blue Silk Pleated Dao Top paired with Black Slim Pant.

Two off-white looks included a Ladies' Off-White Tuxedo Jacket paired with Off-White Straight Leg Pant, and Silk Camisole; and a Ladies' Off-White Lazer Cut Asymmetrical Daikum Tunic paired with an Off-White Poly Crepe Straight Leg Pant.

Menswear

The focus for their menswear collection is "functionality, one of Blanc de Chine's eight fundamental elements."

With the popularity of destination weddings to tropical locales, one of the highlights of the collection was a "revolutionary" short-sleeve version of their original Chinese tuxedo jacket, a Black Short-Sleeve Poly Crepe Tuxedo Jacket paired with an Ivory Silk Short-Sleeve Mandarin Collar Silk Shirt, and Black Tuxedo Short. They also showed the look with formal trousers.
