In the past, I have reviewed several collections from Chris Cheng’s main line, which bears the title LAB Local Art Base.
Now, I would like to introduce you to the premium line at LAB, which is entitled LAB Su du est.
Chris has truly outdone himself with this line’s 2016 autumn/winter collection called “Beautiful Minds,” which is inspired by lunacy and insanity—an eventful twist on hospital chic that plays on matters of the mind.
The collection draws influence from a range of films, including Requiem for a Dream, Fightclub, Amelie, and Clockwork Orange.
Reflecting the layers of the conscious mind, the collection abounds in pleating and folds.
The lookbook stills have been taken from a short film, which vividly introduces the collection.
