I had the pleasure of attending the New York Fashion Week debut of Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu’s brand, MONGOL.
Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu is known for her impeccable sense of style and a citizen of the world. Although is travels the world, she takes great pride in her Mongolian heritage, which is also shown in her collection.
The collection is inspired by a combination of traditional Mongolian costumes, urban casual and an entrepreneur lifestyle. The ready to wear line incorporates sleek wearable pieces that exudes luxury. Besides from the inspiration of traditional Mongolian costumes she incorporated both Mongolian land fur, cashmere and other special materials from Mongolia.
The show started off with a man playing the Asian cello and a man joined him singing a Mongolian song. A great way to introduce the Mongolian flair that was very clear in Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu’s collection.
I am a sucker for strong colors and I got my money’s worth of strong colors and then some. The combinations of the colors were very unusual but very beautiful and complemented the style very well.
The clothes were sleek but comfortable but best of all it was a perfect balance of tasteful sexiness meets traditional costumes. Her take on fashion is unique and I loved the asymmetrical cuts of the jackets which I have never seen done quite like this before. How the fur was placed with the dresses and jackets were inspiring and gave the looks a sense of luxury without being boring.
What can I say I loved her collection and I now know where to go to buy my next outfit! I was especially sold when an ocean green and purple dress with bare shoulders came out. A perfect length for an A-line dress that was showing confidence and sexiness at the same time.
Her collection was a beautiful, elegant yet playful. And it was a fine line between youthfulness and too much that she walked perfectly! If you are on the lookout for something new and fresh, look no futher! MONGOL is your brand!
I hope she comes back to show us her collections again and again and again and… well, you get the drift.
