WWD this collection was an ode to a China, “that does not exist anymore." And perhaps this is where imagination takes over as a couture collection should. This is the China that was stylized, generalized and absolutely fascinating to the Western world. Models for most part were decked out in doll-like blunt cut bobs with heavy eyeliner.
Overall a very unified theme throughout but not sure about all the flipped out hems on peplums, sleeves and skirts. Some may argue that the big shoulder look might be difficult for the average woman to pull off, but I think it may be easier than the padded hips at Dior. Perhaps, the shoulders are best left to willowy frames? I do particularly like the first suit shown in grey at the very top left, as the billowy sleeves lend some softness to a predominantly precise cut/rigid looking collection.
