LFW – Yifang Wan A/W 2013 collection
The start of the day at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout began with a fascinating showcase of Yifang Wan’s AW13 collection. Renowned for her eccentric and bold accessories from previous collections, next season for Wan is a true reflection of her intriguing style. Fascinated by the work of Marin Abramovice, the collection takes on the physical and mental limits of a being, and transforms them into a futuristic array of must-have pieces.
The collection itself is aimed to reflect extreme self-restraint and austerity. Simplicity is the key to the collection, with garments taking a more linear shape to the body. Only four shades of colour were used amongst the pieces, including a beautiful deep emerald green and a dark, burgundy shade, reflecting the true feel of autumn through a use of cashmere wool.
Stainless steel belts, necklaces and shoulder cuffs pierced the bold colour palette to resemble weapons “restraining” the body from life’s temptations.
