Jolin Wu autumn/winter 2019 collection catwalk show for LFW
Irreverence and thinking outside the box are concepts that come to mind after attending Jolin Wu’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection today.
Neon and metals are the most eccentric materials on the catwalk to capture the curious eye. The garments have been constructed in such a creative and unapologetic way that one can easily be transported to an underground street party just by watching the show.
The interposition of textures acts as a symbol of the modern rebel, informing a casual London street style influenced by the days of Vivienne Westwood.
It’s impressive to see how the different styles connect and function in a unisex way, making the garments, hairstyles and accessories work systematically for male and female in a fluid homogeneous sequence.
Oversized jumpers, loose trousers and vibrant contrasts are part of the extravaganza, which dictates no rules but invites antagonism from the most conservative spectators. On top of being controversial, the show makes for a ludicrous viewing experience.
The models remove their hoodies from their heads in an exact and ergonomic fashion. The line establishes breaking ground by being different, carefree and vibrant.
A touch of velvet appears for the grand finale, as well as a surprising, pure white off-the-shoulder tunic. With the model carrying a massive white ball, the ending is a piece of art in itself.
