Zang Toi took a room full of people on an Haute Roman Holiday. Inspired by a recent trip to Rome, The Zang Toi collection was filled with Red, Pink, Orange and supported by Black and Grey. Zang Toi loves lace and drama. He gave us both in his Fall 2018 collection… and with a little mink, cashmere and tulle.
The collection was filled with so many wearable pieces as well as pieces that made a statement. Long gown with capes, men’s velvet suits and mini dresses with ballgown skirts, were nods to Rome.
The collection was not only focused on garments, the accessories were just as gorgeous. The fur stoles and flower hats were contributed to the Roman Holiday theme but were also very wearable. The models sported short dark hair and even red hair. I loved the hair details because it added a sleek and elegant look to the models. Zang Toi showed his understanding of current events designing a backpack in aid of the Jed Foundation’s Suicide Prevent Campaign. The most unique accessory was the long diamond necklace on a bare back of a model in a black dress with a plunging back.
Every season Zang Toi uses his signature silhouettes and changes the accents to reflect his inspiration for the season. You will always find a kimono type jacket or sheath dress. The prints of the season were Tartan and floral.
My favorite look was the red pants and a long red jacket with a lace covered hem. I could see my Aunt wearing this look for an evening out. I also loved the black Hoisery with red gems on the back. Red Hosiery was also featured as well as
Once again Zang Toi showed us why his shows are always packed, his new boutique has been so successful and why the House of Toi is a highly sought after international design house. Zang Toi thank you for having me. I look forward to witnessing your Spring Summer Collection in September.
