ITS#Fashion: Fah Chak’s Knight’s Tale.

December 28, 2013
From Galliano to Daphne Guinness, armour and other medieval icons have often played muse to several designers in recent years. Winner of the Maison Martin Margiela award at this year’s ITS#Fashion, and the second noteworthy grad to be featured here, Fah Chak has also come over all helmets and breastplates with a collection that fuses masculine silhouettes informed by medieval war-wear and incorporating subtly romantic flourishes.

For her final student collection, Chak attempts to trace the stages of an ill-fated romance between a knight and princess, mixing the more mean (bulbous outerwear, lean trousers) with the sensitive and somewhat regal (laser cut-out details on leather to mimic lace, elaborate metallic ruffs). The concept won’t intellectually stimulate for hours on end but the execution is second to none.

Personally, I reckon this year’s panel had their priorities straight but where does your loyalty lie? With Fak Chak’s knight’s tale or Shaun Samson’s bold fabric frenzy?
