Another cheongsam news update

Here are a couple of news from the online retailers.

Lark & Peony is having a summer sale for the entire month of June at 20% off on all merchandise. Use the code: SUMMER2015 at the checkout to get the discount. You can choose from the modern cheongsam dresses such as these:

This dress looks like the collar height has been raised slightly.

Otherwise you can consider the classic cut with an obi belt.

Or, the peplum cheongsam top.

L&P has also launched accessories recently, specifically brooch, in cutesy Japanese designs.

Sissae launched its latest collection a couple of days ago, and called it “Swoon”. I am not sure if I would swoon on the dresses, tops and vests, which are the typical dramatic and over-the-top designs. Most of which are more suitable for formal events, such as this dress with the thigh-high slit. I have to say it’s an eye-turner though, and does look amazing.

I wouldn’t go for this garish cheongsam dress which would be most appropriate on a “Getai” stage.

Sissae also has some elegant classic designs with a twist, like this embroidered dress which appears to have an assymetrical side slit.

Another classic design with beautiful details on the collar.

A loose fit cheongsam top, which doesn’t look swoon-worthy to me.

A vest with a stunning back! Just look at the intricate cutout.

The front view, which has a regal look about it.

I notice that Sissae tends to use sateen fabric, and as a result, the dresses can be very unforgiving: any bulge will be exposed for all to see. You literally must have a flat tummy to look good. I think the designers should consider other fabrics or look at innovating the designs or cut to flatter the woman’s body, since very few of us have the model physique.
