Mark Kenly Domino Tan made a return to Copenhagen Fashion Week and presented his SS19 collection in a beautiful location at Carlsberg city.
The designer featured his tailoring skills in a series of his signature sculptural yet feminine silhouettes, minimal but eye catching and at the same time. Draping, dissecting and examining pieces such as couture dress or a vintage men’s trench coat, both originating from the 1940’s, and remaking them into new effortless garments of today echoing the complex starting point.
With strong attention to detailing, each of Tan’s designs are unique, featuring asymmetrical pleats, ruffles, floor-length hems, bell sleeves and Tan’s own interpterion to the dress over trousers trend.
the collection travels from mono-coloured pieces to patchworks of fabrics mixed almost as kaleidoscopic as the way they were created. Silk, paper like cotton with punched holes, hand drawings on organza and light wools in pinstripe, fabrics were combined with neutrals like navy, white and sand and framed by strong turquoise and amethyst.
The Danish designer, which debuted in 2013 at Copenhagen Fashion Week with his Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, has become known for aesthetic mid-century silhouettes, structural tailoring and experimental use of fabrics. We look forward to seeing his exquisite designs at Copenhagen Fashion Week next season.
