Zang Toi was up to his old tricks for Spring 2013 & the results were every bit as over the top, glamorous & opulent as normal. Mr. Toi is a designer with a heavy hand as there is very little subtlety in his work. Instead, he uses fabrics with body & heft, which serve to increase the structural language of his work. Add to that his penchant for dramatic ornamentation & the Zang Toi aesthetic is coming into focus.
Mr. Toi kept his palette in the pastel end of the color spectrum & his range of Pink, Blush, Yellow & Lavendar, set against his more formal pieces in Black provided an alluring contrast. The Zang Toi lady is extremely loyal & demonstrates her admiration by cheering at his shows as well as flocking to his mid-town atelier with their checkbooks in hand. Not much will change come this Spring, as this collection was perfect for his clientele in every manner imagingable.
