Samantha Chang Collection
“I design with women in mind. I combine style and comfort in an elegant way.” – Samantha Chang.
Another NYC designer we’re taking a look at this week is Samantha Chang. Her luxury lingerie line offers a beautiful and delicate selection of intimates and loungewear. With an upcoming trunk show at Lille Boutique on December 13, 2013, we wanted to showcase a few looks for our readers.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Chang exhibited an early aptitude for fashion that brought her to the US to pursue her dreams, which were fully realized when she launched her own ready-to-wear collection immediately after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her eponymous lingerie line was launched four years later, in 2000, and she started her own showroom in 2008 to share her experience and nurture young, independent designers like herself.
“I design with women in mind. I combine style and comfort in an elegant way. I choose luxurious fabrics and combine them with laces that are sensuous and refined,” says the designer. “My sophisticated and classic designs are created to be timeless so my customer can cherish her purchases for years.”
Carried by exclusive department stores like Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Fred Segal, and favored by celebrities like Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Christy Turlington, her designs are world-renowned for their femininity and beautiful details. Her strength lies in utilizing comfortable fabrics, harmonious colors and playful prints, and executing simple silhouettes with beautiful finishing.
