Chris Han showed real growth this season by embracing a plethora of textiles. Light weight chiffon tops were seamlessly paired with heavy wool pieces. This exploration of fabric made the line feel particularly fresh. The olive, plum, and grey color palette was extremely wearable, and it was clear that Han was designing for modern women.

Overall, the line was delivered with a whisper. Nothing felt terribly deliberate, and everything just floated down the runway with a relaxed feeling. Nothing was forced, but the looks were still striking. Fingerless gloves, drawstrings, and peep toe pumps all worked together to emphasize the simple elegance of the clothing. The swept back hair and extremely dark lipstick created memorable runway looks that created high drama against the glossy and burnished fabrics.
