Jasmine Chong SS17 cleanses the fashion palette. The collection is muted, satin tranquillity – a song of silence, a meditation on clarity, a lesson that could only be learned through feeling and experience – as the designer herself puts it. “I need the sea because it teaches me” is the opening line of On the Blue Shore of Silence, a poem by Pablo Neruda which perfectly encapsulates the ethereal, Cali vibe of Chong’s SS17 collection.
