Coming Soon... With this AW/12 collection, Haizhen Wang continues to develop his creative universe, exploring the multiple and endless variations from native cultures, seeing beauty perceived in so rich ways. This reveals itself through a journey from looking at native African and Asian costumes, historical British military uniforms, to 21st century modern culture. A key focus of the collection is contrasts on various levels from materials to proportions. The garments displays the body from different views, from wide and voluminous shapes, through strict and tailor fitted clothing to flowing and loosely shaped items. As this is the year of the Queens jubilee, this has influenced the collection, specially seen through Royal Guards chains as accessories pieces. The clothes range from loosely fitted coats, with elements from historical military costume, to sharply cut tailored jackets. Attention to the neck is also a key element. Collars and hoods that emphasize and curves around the neck, bringing comfort and protection. The materials used is heavy, felted, Italian wool for coats and blazers. Dresses created from chiffon, for flowing drapery. And as a contrast: padded coats and capes, with faux fur trimming, and statement buckle closures.The collection includes a showpiece dress, and other showpiece accessories. These build up under the theme of the collection, layering and contrasting using various materials.
