On October 10-17, Shanghai Fashion Week returned to the city with dozens of runway shows, presentation and parties, here are the highlights from the event.
The 1980s disco era served as the main inspiration behind menswear label 8on8’s SS19 collection. Titled ‘Nonsense Move,’ designer Li Gong transports the audience back in time with a well-balanced mix of classic menswear silhouettes in subtle colors, as well as some bold prints and geometric patterns on more casual hoodies and functional activewear pieces featuring shades of neon.
After renaming her eponymous label to AT-ONE-MENT earlier this year, the SS19 collection by Wanbing Huang is yet another celebration of femininity. Dresses feature soft and fluid silhouettes and the overlapping of various polarizing textures and hues to showcase the designer’s mastery in craftsmanship and poetic design language.
Feng Chen Wang
Converse teams up with the London-based menswear designer Feng Chen Wang for a showcase titled ‘This Is My Journey Through Life.’ Featuring ‘half’ as the main theme, the London-based designer’s streetwear aesthetic is melded together with the American shoe label’s sporty vibe in a series of sweaters, shirts and classic Converse high-cut sneakers.
Samuel Gui Yang
Vases have long been considered by many as the ideal shape for the female body, and the popular home décor item is the central theme for the SS19 collection of Samuel Gui Yang. Here, the designer continues to add traditional design motifs like Chinese button knots into his creations, while showcasing the elegant body shapes of the models through classic womenswear silhouettes.
