Self-Portrait Pre-Fall 2022

Han Chong is renowned for his unique take on special occasion dresses at Self-Portrait. The designer wanted to focus more on an effortless style for Pre-Fall. He kept his evening gowns the same, but also increased his range of everyday wearable knitwear. He said that the silhouettes were simpler and less complicated, adding that they have lots of ease.

Chong launched his knitwear collection this spring. now comprises . He said that he has had success designing knits in slinkier fabrics since he went direct-to-consumer. This was something he wanted to add. He said, “It is comfortable–people now want more flexible pieces with stretch.” For the workplace, the new dresses come in long sleeves and collars in sky blue. They also have strapless options in bright lime green for the club. You can also find discreet knit two-piece sets such as a black strapless top and matching maxi skirt. Chong stated that it has a “very ’90s” vibe.

Chong tried new designs for his casual wear. Chong did make denim for his Gen-Z customers this season. He made mini skirts and corset-like tops. He said that the Self-Portrait jeans are very sexy. For ladies who like to eat lunch, he also produced polished tweed jackets. He added that “Our customer could be from 20 up to 50, so it was important to offer her a wide range of products.”

As for Self-Portrait’s bread-and-butter–the dresses–Chong was thinking of the many weddings and other special events that people shop for around the pre-fall season. He wanted to update classic silhouettes. An elegant white cotton gown with subtle applique at the neckline featured side cutouts and was made of cotton. The mini lavender dress featured ruching around the bust and dramatic ruffles at hips. It also had crystal trim. Chong imagined these dresses as something that you could easily put on and take with you. He said, “You need to feel comfortable in these pieces and be able have fun with them.” “You don’t want to be precious about what you’re wearing.”
