For his fall/ winter 2014 collection, designer Zang Toi said on his Facebook page that he drew from the Shanghai of the 1930s for the inspiration for the garments that walked down the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York on Feb. 12. There was definitely a look of film noir to his collection, down to the femme fatale-appropriate hair and makeup on the models. But rather than a monochrome palatte, he also offered up a good deal of kelly green to add pop to the clothes. It was a beautiful collection full of moods, sometimes romantic, sometimes mysterious, but always beautiful.
