Summary: Through adorned headpieces and tribal-inspired prints, Farah Angsana takes it to a whole new level. Paying homage to the tropical rainforest Indonesian Borneo, the piece are suppose to take on the visuals of the wild jungle. Seemingly a bit duller for spring, I could see how these colors could translate to glamour. It is not the construction where the collection falters a bit, it's the pop of colors. 


The  pieces could rely on their innate beauty alone, but for a bit of surprise, Angsana added intricate embroidery, couture details and Swarovski crystals to bring out the potential of the collection as a whole.
