It’s been a month after Chinese New Year, and during this month I got to see some cheongsams around though they have been a mixed bag.
I was at Central Mall a week after Chinese New Year and found a couple of boutiques with modern cheongsams. L’zzie boutique has this retro-looking white cheongsam with embossed top and pleated bottom.
JL by Ucci Boutique has a pretty boring looking dress with mandarin collar.
There’re a couple of ugly-looking cheongsams coming from Ispiza boutique. I’ve no idea what’s with the lace caplet in this dress?
This flower print is so awful that I wouldn’t be caught dead in it.
Blum displayed a couple of beautiful cheongsams, like this one below with prints of peony flowers and a pair of mandarin ducks. I thought it’s rather elegant.
This is a fabulous modern cheongsam design, with navy blue lace overlay on a fuchsia pink lining.
Hana boutique has the same old cheongsam designs which are seriously yawn-inucong
I discovered a store at Mandarin Gallery which offers oriental-inspired clothes and accessories called ‘Xi’ (喜).
This is a casual modern cheongsam which can double up as a weekend wear.
This is another casual cheongsam, but with large and colorful prints, which may be a little too loud.
