Max Tan treated us to a sneak peek of his upcoming Spring Summer collection after the Parco next-Next fashion show two weeks ago and we were all over the new garments.

You know he never disappoints, and as we were acquainted with the new rack, we set our eyes on this soft grey melange top-and-skirt ensemble:

The subtly paneled top ends with a circle of folds, and then integrates seamlessly into the heavily draped skirt. I have no words.

Here’s a mind-teaser/mind-boggling piece – a dress that melds into a rectangular skirt when held up. How is such an idea conceived? How does that even happen? My mind is blown. (Or I am stupid.)

It’s always interesting to see how designers take new materials and produce beautiful and unexpected things with them. L’ile aux Ashby is one such example…

Taking soft, delicate sheer fabrics… this latest series, on display at Parco, are woven together to produce a most delectable textured effects. I’m drawn to the delicacy of this series and surprisingly am not bothered much by it’s size.

Certainly a statement piece if I saw any. (:
