If there is one thing the Bernard Chandran label does not lack, it’s copious rays of shine. Since his illustrious UK debut a few seasons past each collection has incorporated enough shimmer to appease the demands of a Glitterati mafia. S/S’14 is seemingly the full fruition of this vision, with finite interest in all fabric light reflecting, iridescent and translucent.

Regal attitude was given to the models crowned with extra-terrestrial halos and painted red lips. Chandran’s repeated fascination with imposed and attached shapes appeared in varying degrees; cocoon capes were fitted to cocktail dresses while uneven lengths in sleeves and disproportioned volumes of trouser pleating provided flounces of visual delight.

More emphasis was placed on the overlay of construction, with outer fabrics more often consisting of flamboyant textures to offset matte underlay and paneling. A sort of Malaysian tartan with matte shimmer followed the square grid-pattern trend for the upcoming season. Light pink, violet and silver were contrasted with burnt orange, teal and garden green.

Small details were given to jumpsuits and dresses embellished with jewelled straps and cyclonic formations of tubular beading. Options for a more relaxed statement were found in crimson cocktail and evening options. Bridging the gap between East and West fashion, Chandran continues to produce a global perspective on international elegance.
