A TENTATIVE ATELIER (HK) at Lazzari Store
The creative studio A Tentative Atelier was born in Hong Kong in 2012 but its work group lives between the United Kingdom, China and Italy. The first collection, SS2013, was presented at Paris Fashion Week and was already successful then. What gets noticed is undoubtedly his innovative artistic-craft approach in a neo-vintage key. Unpredictable shapes with bold and even bizarre combinations fascinate and enchant. Light Victorian style touches marry happily with romantic elements. Irregular hems and collages of fabrics flourish in sumptuous silhouettes beyond any trend of the moment. Techniques from the past re-emerge amicably to be expressed in male and female clothes that are strong in their being in the world. Designers Nam T and Pauline Y rely on the latest generation of Shanghai master craftsmen, tailors and weavers with more than 40 years of experience.
