LA Style Fashion Week- LAPrivy Magazine show Part 1 PU3






(I am moving my site to, follow me there)

On October 19th, LAPrivy Magazine brought a breathtaking ensemble to the runway of Vibiana, showcasing collections by PU3, iiJin, and Masai Payan. The show, punctuated with non-gimmicky “wow” factors throughout, achieved an almost orgasmic effect toward the end. I found myself sighed with satisfaction aftermath.

The collections presented were stellar.  The show captivated my attention with superb atmosphere modulations through sounds, runway attitudes, color tones, styles, and surprise performance, keeping it raw and engaging.  I also appreciated that 3 distinctively different styles of designs were introduced with PU3 elegantly sensual and exotic, iiJin ultra charming, flirty, and colorful(it’s “oh so LA” in all the good ways), and Masai Payan devine, heavenly, and regal. I need to break down my coverage to 3 different blogs each dedicated to one designer lest this blog gets unbearably long. Here is Part 1 for collections by PU3.

PU3 is designed by the Ramli twins from Malaysia with international appeal. They give each collection such poetic theme  names such as “silent revolution” “liberal Rebel” and, for this particular one, “untamed.”  The naming seems to reveal their desire to break boundaries and such desire increasing in strength with each collection. I find their style sophisticatedly sensual with exotic flair.  While the “untamed” element is not pronounced to me, this collection has its own unique allure.

I found few looks particularly breathtaking, beckoning with the hues evoking African safari imaginations.  One such look exudes animalistic exoticism – exemplified by a sandy brown blouse of flowing material in tiger(or of sort) fur print matched with a peplum in the same print softened and diluted.  Another look oozes feminine earthiness- a black bodysuit with asymmetrical shoulder cut matched with a thigh- lengthed shawl in geometric print featuring prominent use of red mud color.   The mastery manifests in that these prints, while eye-catching, still grounded with modern finishings, such as solid color definitions and water color-like appearances, preventing them from being flashy and out-datedly gaudy.

PU3 designers incorporate details that elevate their designs from mediocrity to appealing, asymmetrical decollage on the flat of the chest and front waist, sequined flounce belt, snake-skinned glitter print sheath just to name a few.  Those details are incorporated in such ways that give enough “oomp” to the design but still maintain sophistication, without a hint of trashiness.

Until next time!
