S/S 2017

Designer Becca McCharen-Tran stated that, “The Chromat SS17 HYPERWAVE collection is inspired by the strength and power of professional female athletes like Serena Williams, Simone Manuel and flyboard world champion Gemma Weston, who push both their bodies and their sport to the extreme.” She scored well with this athletic based collection. Everything seemed bold and modern with attention to detail, the body and cut – classic Chromat. Signature color-blocking, mesh, cut-outs and neoprene on bikinis, bodysuits, etc. filled the runway. And unlike many other designers, she actually designs for all body types and shows her runway collections on different shapes and sizes. Thank you for keeping it real!

DYNAMIC STRUCTURE

Chromat designer Becca McCharen provocatively mesmerized us once again with her Fall/Winter 2015 collection at Milk Studios. Last season we were thoroughly impressed with the execution of her futuristic designs. This season was no different in that everything seemed meticulously and precisely made. But what we really loved was her design evolution. She took it to the next level and with true success. We were enamored with every seductive piece. Synthetic fabrics were used once again. And we were intrigued with the addition of latex from Tableaux Vivants. Our favorite look undeniably had to be the high-tech Chromat “plexi dress” which was constructed in a translucent TPU fabric and worn with satin lingerie underneath. However we were also extremely fascinated with the “White Swan” look, which was a synthetic hair bustier, worn with a Swarovski pentagram face mask. Incredible. The extremely modern appeal was enhanced with hair and make-up choices. Sleek hairstyles were provided by the incredible Amy Farid, with certain models donning spacey, structured ponytails encased in black latex. Make-up artist Yadim applied an exaggerated, heavy and shiny brow to all of the models creating a strong, almost menacing, look. Can it even get any better than this? YES. Just wait until next season. Photography Alexander Thompson.

THE FUTURE IS NOW

Architecture was the key word for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection designed by Becca McCharen for the New York label Chromat. A former architect, the designer showed her powerful line at New York City’s Standard Hotel. The designs were all sexy, futuristic bondage with cage dresses, revealing bodysuits, gorgeous swimsuits and even face masks. The entire collection was stark black and white–very graphic, which was emphasized through her use of cut-outs. From close observation, the construction of the clothing looks beautifully crafted. This sci-fi vision was complimented by hair styling genius Chuck Amos, giving the Chromat models clean topknots and cornrows. We loved how she closed the show with her space-age “bride” in an all white cage dress and hat, just like the couture shows in Paris. It’s no wonder that pop stars like Beyonce, Madonna and Iggy Azalea all favor her high-tech creations. The future looks very bright for Chromat. Photography Alexander Thompson.
