Coming into the Pre-fall season, POEM’s creative spirit takes a deep dive into the world of sprightly and effeminate finesses with “Nostalgic Poetry”, conveying beauty into the light.
The ingenuity behind this collection was dated back almost 20 years when the house’s Creative Director, Chavanon Caisiri, set about his very own first dressmaking journey in 2004. With a deep appreciation for such classic heritage, the idea was rejuvenated suavely by his assistant designer, Borvornpat Plyngam, throughout “Nostalgic Poetry”.
Jumping off with the intrigued fascination behind body anatomy, perky and eccentric methods of layering were carried all the way throughout the collection with assorted flairs. By design, the structured corsets were styled over the downy high collar knitted pieces, incarnating the antithetical forming of flesh and bones.
One of the pinnacle features of “Nostalgic Poetry” was drawn from POEM’s earliest inherited ornament, the iconic ribbon crafts, in which works harmoniously as the precious accents. With the masterful draping technique, the refined sequin fishnets were meshed and laced into the form of Criss cross neck garments, celebrating the house’s couture roots.
Soft and sumptuous depth of colors were integrated at full length with a glimpse of freshly introduced bold tints including pink rose quartz, mermaid green, blue cerulean. From the fun mini skirts to the classic formalwear, “Nostalgic Poetry” perfectly enfolds such architectural motifs with intuitive arrangement in color and symbols.
