The Gemma Kahng FW 2012 collection is a collaboration of royal looks with extreme punk rock attitude. The designer combines heavily embellished gold pieces with fierce silhouettes, lending fans a rich and regal rock and roll lifestyle. The line has a simple color palette, sticking to black, gold and neutrals. Atypical for the designer, there is a series of punchy red pieces, constructed into a down shawl and an adorned bracelet.
The line is highly memorable with eye-grabbing pieces, such as Kahng's over-the-knee boots. The look is vampy, and juxtaposes the frocks in a sultry way. Also memorable is the series of feathery, yet fur-like jackets, shawls and vests. Khang rendered highly voluminous pieces in ultra-pale pinks, lending an otherworldly feel to the line.
The Gemma Kahng FW 2012 line is spunky, yet elegant.
