New York Fashion Week SS18: Highlights of Day 4

Self-Portrait’s Spring 2018 collection was a mix of old and new. Channeling the nostalgia which was inspired by Mick and Bianca Jagger, the looks are a modern reiteration of the flamboyance of the ’70s and the charisma of ’80s. From asymmetrical hemlines to ruffles, instead of its signature guipure lace, its creative director and founder Han Chong opted for lighter fabrics for most of the pieces this season, pulled together by classic motifs—polka-dot, stripes and star prints. To seal the cool-girl vibe, models are accessorised with neckerchiefs, leather beret and round sunglasses.

Aside from the clothes, the brand is also introducing a capsule collection on its own, after collaborating with Robert Clergerie for the past two seasons. Kitten heels and sock boots are adorned with chain details for that modern update.
