Zang Toi Fall 2008
Zang Toi has been a man of mystery over the past few seasons by only showing a fall collection. With such a long time gap it makes one wonder what he will show, leaving the spring season alone and only concentrating on fall.
Before show time the night before we received a press release stating the inspiration was via the grand life in the Adirondacks. We know Zang always travels for inspiration but the adirondacks? To say the least we had reservations on this collection.
We must clearly state that the Zang Toi Fall 2008 collection is by far one of his best works to date! The first two looks that came down hooked us. Once again he has combined his two collection into one show and the Toi House white quilted nylon ski-parks with white Mongolian Lamb collar and mini back-pack looked sleek, stylish and snow ski cool. Other highlights were his black stretch wool jersey trench jacket and black cashmere/silk pantsuit. We also love the black leather hipster pant.
Our vote for the red carpet gown is his red silk charmeuse socialite dinner dress with beaded draped Adirondak star brooch. So maybe it’s not a bad thing that Mr. Toi takes a long layoff and only shows once a season, it gives him time to develop blockbuster collections for his recession proof ladies. We could not have asked for a better collection to close out fashion week.
