Drawing on the blend of east meets west, and the mixing of both classic and contemporary art was the starting point of inspiration for the collection as Wang mixed the Baroque costume with re-constructed modern design.
The collection was made up of sophisticated tailoring that was both clean and feminine. The through line pulling the pieces together was in the ruffle details that could be found on the original inspiration of the Baroque costume. Re-interpreted into a modern silhouette, the ruffle detailing was used on the collar, belt and sleeves of the collection.
Other highlights included a wide leg menswear inspired suit and a cleverly constructed white blouse and black skirt. The blouse was tailored in a new silhouette, with an open slit sleeve, and ruffle detailing on the collar. Paired with a ruffle belt and simple black skirt breathed new life into the look.
Another unusual silhouette came in the form of the re-worked blazer dress with its oversized sleeve, adding volume and glamour. Even Wang’s simple black dress was re-worked using the Baroque ruffle detailing on the V neckline of the dress.
Made up primarily of a palette of white, grey, navy and black, the collection was a perfect balance of clean lines that could be found in Wang’s daywear pieces. With wide leg trouser suits, a fringed pinstripe blazer with tailored trousers or an oversized sleeve balanced the collection as Wang gave a more fitted silhouette for eveningwear. With a high slit skirt and low cut dresses with lace detailing, the collection told a story of seductive power and effortless style.
