JOE CHIA CHAPTER 08
JOE CHIA - CHAPTER 08 LOOKBOOK
Malaysian fashion dynamo Joe Chia launches his Chapter 08 lookbook, the antagonist of past chapters, as this collection aims not to construct standalone pieces but rather a collection which comprises of pieces of puzzle that fit into an empty canvas. Singularly each garment portrays a piece of abstract art, when assembled together they transform into a large piece of expressionism. Each individual piece is finished off with raw, rough and smooth edges defining each individual's distinctive details.
Joe's signature is evident throughout and seen within the structured tailored pieces paired with exaggerated pants and outerwear. The palette remains predominantly muted only to be lifted with sporadic accents of a deep bordeaux. The core focus remains on the fabrication as his finishes and techniques continue their evolution within the form and structure of his silhouettes. Introducing the newly design persona which embodies in each piece, Chapter 08 is the beginning of a new expedition of his ever evolving endeavor.
