XIAO LI


 

The newest name in Lane Crawford’s Created in China programme, Xiao Li was also recently shortlisted for last year’s prestigious LVMH Prize Fund award. Born in Qingdao, China, Li moved to London, where she is now based, to study fashion at the London College of Fashion and then the Royal College of Art. It was here that she began to develop her signature experimental and sculptural knitwear. The Autumn Winter 2016 collection explores the speed of the fashion industry and the feeling that, “there is no time for young designers to incubate and develop their ideas.” Garments are deconstructed, giving the illusion that there isn’t enough time to finish them while jackets are created from an embossed technical fabric that feature stepped hems, offer the illusion of speed.

 

 

WAN HUNG

 

         


The newest menswear name in Lane Crawford’s Created in China programme, London-based Wan Hung Cheung launched his eponymous label in 2014 after graduating from Central Saint Martin’s with a BA in Fashion Print. Originally from Hainan, China, Cheung’s collections explore modernity, innovation and traditional artisanal craft. The woven cube embellished bomber jacket is one of the key pieces, each cube is hand-made by the designer himself so it is a truly special piece. Wear with a fitted white shirt and sharp tailored pants for a sophisticated yet playful vibe.

Louboutin Speaks The Language Of Lips

French shoe maestro, Christian Louboutin, turns his talents to lipstick - and what a perfect pairing. With a sensational pair of heels and distinctive lacquered lips, we are ready and dressed for the world.



"This precious object will be coveted by others. Suggesting a purse full of rare and precious stones that could have been discovered in Ali Baba's cave, it will arouse lust and desire... and is made to be stolen,” says Louboutin of the talisman like form of his new lipstick and liquid lacquer range. Now, given that designers are full of their own bravado, one might take this statement with a pinch of salt. That’s until you handle the stick. Its sabre-like form with python-esque scales and crown topper evokes a phial or an ancient Middle Eastern fertility symbol. And therein in lies the promise of the femme fatale drama that is associated with the perfect painted, luscious lip.


This is a small object with a big impact that one might even consider hanging from a ribbon around your neck from the convenient ring. The full range encompasses 46 shades and naturally includes that iconic bright red shade that is Louboutin’s signature on all his heels. Other favourites include a tropical pink called Bengali and deep dark maroon that’s called Casanovella and by the name alone, you can guess where the ambition of this hue is going.


Heels first fascinated the Frenchman as a young boy when he came across a poster image of stilettoes. Fair to say, he knows about the power of seduction. These lipsticks might be some of the most expensive known to womankind and with that in mind we anticipate thrills in the wearing and the kissing.

Active wear as day wear? Fitness is the new black? These are just some of the messages we have been bombarded with of late and it culminates in a look that finally puts ‘comfort’ into the fashion lexicon. Kelly Wong, Lane Crawford’s General Merchandise Manager of Womenswear and Menswear, gives us the lay of the oft-confusing land of athleisure.


WHAT
 

“Athleisure is essentially the term for performance-wear that you can wear during fitness activities as well as pre and post-workout, or lounge in with no workout at all. Over the last year, activewear brands have been increasingly blurring the lines between what we wear to the gym and our everyday wardrobe through clever designs and innovative fabrics that can cater to both.”


WHY
 

“Health is the new luxury so we are seeing people are paying more attention to their fitness, wellbeing and general experiences of self-improvement. And with our busy modern lifestyles, who has time to change for every occasion? Plus, if it looks good and it is comfortable…”


WHO
 

“Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are the undisputed queens of athleisure because they wear it with such confidence. You can tell they feel good about themselves and their positive attitude and conviction really comes through.”


WEAR
 

Athleisure collections from Live the Process, NO KA’OI, The Upside and Monreal London are great for ladies who look for a stylish yet performance-oriented look; their leggings, sports bras and jackets are designed with tech innovations and made from tech-savvy fabrics. Edits from LNDR, Koral, Alala and Norma Kamali are good alternatives for those who favoured leisure and lounge style.



Gentlemen looking for a playful athleisure look should not miss the latest collaboration between Adidas Originals and Eason Chan. This much-anticipated collection offers a series of minimalist streetwear staples, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodie, sweatpants and bomber jackets in a color palette of grey, blue, black and bold neon yellow.
