Christopher Strong is a Capetown-based womenswear label founded by Elaine du Plessis and Michael Owen.
BLACK IS ALWAYS THE NEW BLACK - Elain du Plessis
We have a deep, abiding love for minimalism - that no-frills attached, understated good-to-go mood that always seems so disconnected from the fray; that Alexander Wang meets Stella McCartney vibe; those back-to-basics pieces expertly executed in black, white, grey and beige; those much-needed and much-loved building blocks.
Christopher Strong's collection "I See Through You" reminds us why we always begin with - and return to - minimalism. Give us a simple collared white shirt, skinny pants, a partially see-through LBD, a tuxedo blazer, jersey, chiffon, silk -- or just go ahead and give us every piece from "I See Through You" -- and leave the rest to us.
It has been a long, long while since a collection has mirrored our mood so perfectly. We can't even tell you how in love we are.
