Bubbles! That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the Emi Jingu Fall 2019 collection where the Japanese designer showed off the endless artistic possibilities of balloons.
Titled “Unlimited,” the audience was easily captivated by Emi Jingu’s avant-garde take in modern dressing. Toeing the line between sci-fi/fantasy and the real world, the collection proposed cocktail and mini dresses that surprisingly are very wearable! It might look costumey, but these clothes will be a hit on the red carpet.
Using the unique material of balloons, Jingu pushes artistic boundaries as she effortlessly coordinates a metallic palette of grey, bronze and gold tones while intricately layering balloons of different dimensions in such a way to create elegant couture silhouettes.
Jingu’s dresses featured peplum-styles, slim bodices, and flared skirts, highlighting her extraordinary talents. The eccentric garments were complemented with sleek hairstyles, glossy makeup with ashy tones, and stilettos to encompass the chic futuristic style.
