HCM CITY (VNS) — Playful portraits by American pop artist Roy Fox Lichtenstein are featured on the latest creations of award-winning Vietnamese designer Cong Tri.
The HCM City-based designer has unveiled his fall-winter collection which has been inspired by the in-vogue pop art style.
Using Lichtenstein's comic art combined with bold and graphic shapes, Tri's collection features a wide range of creations, including crop tops, midi dresses, cocktail dresses and skirts.
The designer expects his chic creations to capture the interest of the local fashionistas.
Pop art, which emerged in the early 1950s, was a representation of the pop culture and modern influences during that era. The images of starlets, pin-up girls and iconic figures combined with graphic shapes and colours made these pop art pieces popular among the mainstream audience.
Modern pop art-inspired looks, which showcase celebrities, icons and other objects in bold and fluorescent colours, continue to be popular and influential especially among the young and modern. — VNS
