It’s only been four years since local designer Sabrina Goh started her own fashion line, Elohim, but she’s already made a name for herself thanks to an unpretentious approach to design that brings out the wearer’s personalities rather than forces a certain style upon them.
And the same can be said of her latest collection, Fall Winter 2013/14 The Lady Of Woods. The masculine and voluminous cuts place strong emphasis on inner beauty and self; it is meant to complement one’s personality, giving them the self confidence to showcase that sense of fearlessness and pride in who they are.
Think clean cut lines, tailored collar and lapels that give the pieces a structured silhouette, in typical Fall and Winter colours of black, grey and blue – but with a provocative twist: oxford blood, which brings an intense vibrancy to the collection.
New to Goh’s usual style are digital prints of flora and bark, juxtaposed with Swarovski Elements in the two brands’ premier collaboration. The use of these two vastly different elements – with flora and bark prints being rather naturalistic, while the finely cut crystals are more ethereal and elegant – only goes to show how versatile and talented the designer really is.
Sabrina Goh’s Fall Winter 2013/14 The Lady Of Woods is now available at various boutiques in Orchard Central, TANGS Orchard, Isetan Scotts, and Robinsons Jem.
