Fun Affair SS19 collection: Moon Girl presents a space-age and Art Deco inspired collection of garments boasting lavish fabrics and bold geometric shapes. Designer Xi Zhu, inspired by the 1960s social changes, makes a statement about the role of clothing in the modern age.
With recurring moon motifs in the Spring/Summer 2019 collection, Moon Girl is a futuristic spin on the myth of Artemis, Olympian goddess of the moon, a symbol of female independence whose energy is sourced from the moon.
The collection employs Art Deco techniques inspired by the space-age of the 60s, resulting in symmetrical, geometric and slim-fitting forms. The garments include striking staple items of the decade with the mini and midi skirts, angular dresses, and trouser suits.
