Last week I visited Lai Chan boutique again, hoping to see some new designs. Eddie, Lai Chan’s brother, told me that the new collections are again delayed because of custom orders, but they managed to complete a couple of pieces. As expected, they were sold out in a jiffy once they hit the store. Thank God Eddie managed to take a few pictures before the customers collected them! Check out this interesting denim design! It is a cool rugged look.
Take a look at this cheongsam with unique rope binding and wooden buttons. I find it absolutely gorgeous!
It also comes in red (see below), but I thought the bright yellow looks better. Some customer has the same view and bought the yellow dress (again, thanks to Eddie for providing the above pictures).
Here is a stately looking dress, glammed up with beads and ready for formal occasions.
For those looking for office wear, there are dresses in polka dot prints and come in navy blue and black. Personally, I prefer the navy blue with the contrasting white buttons. The black version looks like something a school teacher or principle will wear. It has a no-nonsense feel about it.
Another cheongsam for office wear, made even more convenient with back zip instead of the usual buttons.
A whimsical design from Lai Chan, with a zipped front panel and a crochet pocket. I think a mini version of this dress will look good on little girls.
Eddie told me that, hopefully, the new collections will be available in July, and he will alert me when they hit the store. I can’t wait to check them out.
