MENG’s debut collection included a variety of styles in womenswear, accessories and homeware. Loungewear is actually just the start of things for Meng, whose stunning ready-to-wear, beachwear, kimono and kaftans have also received great applauds. What make them really stand out from the other brands in the market are their glamorous silk and colourful prints. These excite all the fashion enthusiasts and Meng dazzled the loungewear industry with a wearable work of art, rather than delivering just another collection under the classic categories of ‘cosy cashmere’ or ‘sexy and lacy’.
