For our latest collection, we worked with two of Cambodia's most prominent traditional and contemporary dancers as models, Tola Chap and Belle Sodhachivy Chumvan. Tola has practiced traditional dance since she was very young, and is a dancer at the Royal Ballet of Cambodia. Belle is known as Cambodia's most renowned contemporary dancer, and now choreographs and teaches dance in Phnom Penh as well. Both have been invited to perform on stages around the world, and we were lucky to get a chance to work with both of them right after a long trip to Japan. We hoped to highly the comfort and simultaneous elegance of tonlé's clothing through dance and movement - and celebrate the gentle colliding of contemporary and traditional Cambodian inspiration in our design.
