Liquid Dilusion, Christine Phung SS 2014 collection, carries out a playful exploration of water: how it feels, how it reacts and how it often tricks the light creating unexpected shapes and shadows.
This playful exploration extends to the use of materials and textiles and the lines of the silhouettes. The collection features metallic fibres – spun by the Maisons Mahlia Kent and Sfate & Combier – Swarovski crystals and laser cut, polymerised lace.
Some of the pleating in the collection was produced by Maison Lognon and the finely repeated print on silk crêpe was created by American artist William James Thurman. The photographic work presented here beautifully highlights all the qualities of the collection. It was realised by Paris-based photographer Grégoire Alexandre.
Christine Phung was raised in France by a Cambodian father and a French mother. Christine studied fashion design at the ESAA Duperré, and at the Institut Français de la Mode. She worked for Christophe Lemaire, Chloé, Vanessa Bruno, Lacoste and Baby Dior. In 2011 she won the Grand Prix of design for the City of Paris and was a finalist for the Mango Fashion Awards 2012. In 2013 she won the ANDAM price in the category “Premières Collections”.
