Living joy

What is the joy of living? For some it could be something simple but extraordinarily beautiful like a sunrise. For others, a really pretty or striking dress might do the trick. 

Richard Tsen’s new eponymous label is a collection that symbolises the joie de vivre. Joy is expressed through the light and flowing textures of the fabrics, and the billowy silhouettes. After all, isn’t joy all about feeling light and happy enough to be breezing through every situation? Perhaps this collection is meant to reflect that sense of liberty and optimism.  

Halt! Who goes there? Why, a girl with a halterneck tiered dress.

It shrouds the body with clouds of chiffon and organza, beribboned with silk; it’s, oh, so feminine and reminiscent of the romantic post-war Paris of the 1950s.  

A modern twist is also proffered with a more streamlined look via colours of sorbet green, champagne gold and shimmering violet. The clothes come off looking refined and elegant – perfect for that garden party or fancy soiree. 

Sassy girl ... sorbet green skirt with matching bra-top barely concealed with a sheer organza bat-wing sleeved blouse.

Accessories to complement the look include big chiffon hats, sophisticated walking sticks (for those who have to walk from their chauffeured limousines to the door of the event they are gracing!), fluffy bags, furry boleros and pearl necklaces. 

Some have gone so far as to call it a divine collection, or as a popular French song goes, C’est Si Bon.
