Soon we were able to see why Wang made this statement. His show was filled with absolute sports luxe inspiration despite there not being a sneaker in sight.
The show was solid, and inexplicably Wang, fuss free with a strong aesthetic. With the striking use of patterns and wearable cut outs and as always, a casual 'I just threw this on but still look fabulous' feel.
The collection was feminine yet strong, with flared skirts and the use of mesh bodices. Wang wouldn't name exact sports label inspirations behind his collection but that sports inspiration was there, in abundance. One piece even mirrored the sole of a sneaker with a lace up collar to finish off the look.
The overall vibe being sports like sculptured, with athletic fits with flashes of color just like a pair of sneakers. The bar code pattern over a jacket gave a tux like feel to evening wear.
The collection also had a fantastic evening wear selection with body con dresses with beautifully placed colour flashes to flatter the body with stunningly placed pleats. Some of my favorite looks came from the beautifully cut tailored trousers with cross over crop tops. A firm favorite of mine. Another absolute winner from Wang.
