AW 2016 COLLECTION
Designer Haizhen Wang's Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was an ode to all things airborne, with classic aviator uniforms paired with the ‘fil coupé’ technique of loose threads creating a free fall series of silhouettes. Swarovski crystal peeked out of needle-punched Japanese wool in large check patterns, amidst an abundance of leather zip details and exaggerated hand-stitching.
SS 2016 COLLECTION
Designer Haizhen Wang's Spring/Summer 2016 collection featured impeccably tailored pieces in greys, blacks, and neutrals - suits with slight feminine flair were paired with wide legged bell-bottom trousers. Clustered Swarovski crystal button chokers were tied with silk ribbons around models necks, with other crystal elements used to highlight the architectural blocking within Wang's sleek evening wear.
