F/FFFFFF debuted its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week.
“This season aims to capture a new way of appreciating beauty among a changed oriental society, implying what has been engraved in its blood and marrow through 5000 years of cultural heritage combined with its newfound vitality. “ Designer Zac Zeng said.
With the rapid development of technology, the world is changing and recognizing the countless cultures surrounding it. China is developing at remarkable speeds and is learning to balance traditional and modern forces. The tradition – the philosophical ethos and aesthetic notions culturally ingrained for thousands of years – collides with the modern, a fast-moving and tech-driven society led by new mediums. Today's China rises as a gigantic dragon slowly and gradually waking up, with forces colliding and blending within its own body, and is emerging as a new and influential vitality.
In its quest to balance modernity with nature and simplicity, F/FFFFFF combined deep-rooted philosophical ideas and scientific and technological means and observed resulting phenomena while trying to achieve a state of "heaven and humanity." Eastern philosophy, with its mysterious charm, aura, and consciousness, is a marriage of ethereality and reality, nature and art, that contains a powerful and connotative strength.
The collection mixes heaven and earth colors – Blues, Greens and Browns – with fluorescent colors of modern technology – bright Greens, Yellows, Reds – matched with low purity brick red and indigo to achieve a moderate aesthetic and reflect the subtle sense of simplicity of the eastern culture.
The pattern offering combines and image of the rising sun with light-emitting diode glitch art, embodying the rise of eastern power, and the coexistence of the cultural commonality and difference between the West and the East.

Colors blend from darkness to vivid darkness, reflecting the Milky Way’s enchanting nebulous glow. A red-iron ombre, coated with clear paillettes, creates multi-dimensional shimmer. Venus, aptly named after the goddess of love, burns the brightest with her grace, charm and beauty. Gowns enjoy a natural ease and ethereal prettiness, evident in blouson waists, Watteau trains, and cosmos-printed chiffon.
This season’s Pamella Roland collection is inspired by the tranquil, colorful scenery and architecture of Bali. We wanted to channel the aura of the island using color, textures, and embroideries, while staying true to our customer. Bold and soft colors are used to represent the water and wildlife found on the island. Sleek angles and lines in silhouettes represent Bali’s modern architecture, while ornate embroidery and fabric manipulation is employed to emulate Bali’s traditional elements.
The collection is comprised of simple and complex silhouettes, each fashioned with exquisite fabrics including stretch crepe and pleated tulle, as well as a fresh take on a 3D floral jacquard. Pamella Roland Spring 19 embroideries include 3D cut feather flowers, colorful ostrich feathers, ombré signature sequins, and mixed-element embellishments. The color palette balances the bold with the subdued, allowing the collection to be worn at any event all over the globe.
Bahrain is yet again Noon By Noor’s source of inspiration, this time for the Spring/Summer 2019 collection, designed by Noor Rashid Al Khalifa & Haya Mohamed Al Khalifa.
The palette of dusty tones, Sand, Pink Sand and Blue Haze are derived from the landscape of dunes, sea and sky. These shades work back to a core of clean Optic White and Black. Colors work as tone on tone in the textural 'Palm' print as well as the second print, a delicate hand drawn stripe, offered in a combination of two opposing color ways.
Silhouettes are influenced by traditional Middle Eastern costume, which also inspires the manipulation of printed lines around the body. Easier pieces are cut with movement and have planes of striped cloth, tucked and folded to offer distorted optical patterns.
Fabrications give depth to the collection through natural fiber qualities, and texture is created with surfaces broken with stripe weaves, mini pleats, accent Dobby weaves and undulating fringes. The palm leaf is taken as a symbolic motif from the island and is interpreted in the use of sunray pleating in tops, skirts and dresses, all contributing to a flow in movement.
Embellishments also echo the leaf frond and are worked as a literal motif in tone on tone thread-work, or traditional 'Pitta' work, in Metallic Bronze. Styling pays tribute to the masculine and feminine, by contrasting clean mannish tailoring and separates worn back to drape, offering fullness and movement.
