Spotlight: benWU

Flight SS 2010
Structurally sound and intricately constructed, let your imagination take flight with Ben Wu's newest collection. Recently unveiled at Mandarin Gallery's new mall, the local designer's second line benWU is more classic and individualistic than Tian.

Choosing a safely daring palette of neutrals for spring, benWU tinkered with different fabrics and contrasting structures that held true to his aesthetics.
My personal favourite is the toga frock below. The revealing of a tinge of green in a mainly monochromatic collection is daring yet refreshing. This dress appears beautifully constructed, yet soft and sinuous at the same time.
