MaConsef 2016 S/S Collection
The theme of the MaConsef 2016 S/S Collection is Office Fantasy. In the bustling city, a fantasy involving busy urbanites is unravelling. People rush to work every morning in scruffy clothes with upturned collars. They work with sleepy eyes, turning envelops upside down, and draping paper clips from their clothes. Yet, at the very instance that they go off work, high spirit returns and they are ready to party all night. They shed their office wear for sexy yet classy party dressers, dancing and prancing around in the party, waving hands with every familiar or unfamiliar face, submerging themselves into a fantasy world of hallucinated delights.
The collection has three series. The first series is made up of casual wear high on individualism. Comfy natural fabrics such as linen and cotton are used, garnished with emblems of envelopes, collars, and buttonholes. Series 2 displays a fiercely trendy set of office wear. Cutting is sensible yet gracious, embellished with trinkets of waving hands, dreary eyes, and face silhouettes, spiking cheerfulness into the otherwise dull office wear. The final series is the sexy classy party dresses. Elegant satin usually reserved for wedding dresses are used while decorative elements from the last two series are affixed to create a unique yet amusing sense of elegance. The laser-cu patterns and embroideries introduced a splash of feminine charms into the collection.
