The Bona Kim Graduate collection is a contemporary translation of its Oriental design inspiration. Paying homage to the ancient practices that are associated with a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, this all-white womenswear line exudes a feminine air. The collection mixes delicate garments manipulated to create sculptural silhouettes and architectural design accents.

Entitled "Go to the Fine Teatime", the Bona Kim Graduate collection features an array of sophisticated pieces conceived with an artful intention that blends a retro 60s sensibility with modernized silhouettes and teapot inspired shapes.

Opting for a palette of neutral tones, the designer references a zen philosophy through her garments and displays a variety of textures and dimensions through her sophisticated garments that double as wearable pieces of modern art work. Stats for Contemporary Zen Couture Trending: Older & Popular
