Jamie Wei Huang catwalk show report S/S 2015 for LFW
Within Jamie Wei Huang’s educated translation of sharp tailoring, urbanisation and casual wear, the London-based contemporary womenswear designer presented her effortlessly chic spring/summer 2015 collection, Metaphysics, drawing upon inspiration from human existence in an urban society.
Simplistic shirts, lazy culottes and oversized bomber jackets gave a nod to masculinity, accented further with heavy metal buckles, large pocket detailing and leather cuffs worn on the wrist. Wei Haung’s choice of model also served to further her contemporary take on androgyny, with pixie cuts, tattoos and biceps aplenty. Leather PVC, quilted tapestry and shaggy fur set the base for Wei Huang’s designs, including bodycon skirts, shift dresses and collar contrasting shirts – worn with buttons undone for extra effect. Against a gothic palette of dark greens, blues and blacks and a corresponding soundtrack of rock music, Wei Huang’s metaphysics collection could easily be likened to that of a gothic rebellion.
But that’s not all. The collection went on to appease Wei Huang’s more feminine clientele, with cuts including thigh splitting culottes, skater skirts and v-neck tank tops. And whilst the majority of models sported Wei Huang’s choice of traditional silver or black flatform sandals, towering white strappy heels also made the cut.
