United Bamboo SS09

United Bamboo held their Spring/Summer 2009 show on Saturday. Designers Miho Aoki and Thuy Tham continued their artistic exploration by juxtaposing unexpected elements throughout their latest collection. Their loose fitting, feminine dresses were paired with geometric accessories (provided by designer Eugenie Huang). The beiges and pastels that appeared in the majority of the looks were interspersed with jolts of pink, orange, and green. The structured jackets and shorts, with a clear menswear influence, provided a pleasant contrast to loose dresses. Though fusing these many elements, the collection worked seamlessly, tied together with intricate details like pleats and buttons.
