DREAMS – FOXES LIVE UNDER THE RAINBOW
“Claudia Li’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection explores the surrealism of childlike dreams teetering between the real and unrreal. The collection draws to memory the playfulness and whimsical nature of a child’s curiosity and her ability to boldly enter another world, despite the unknown lingering at the edges.
The play on shapes this season focuses on the organic. Light silks and jerseys are draped and brought together into hanging tulip and cocoon silhouettes, while cottons and denims provide a contrast with structured , boxy shapes. Oversized rain drop/shaped buttons accent tops and outerwear.
Referencing the colors of Arika Kurosawa’s Film dreams, Vibrant yellows, pinks and reds are joined by darker undertones such as deep blues and evergreens, adding a tinge of mystery. Original floral prints of goatsbeard and tulip are layered into the collection.
Claudia Li introduces the Kete bag – a leather flower basket shape featuring an inner drawstring silk pouch.”
– Claudia Li Presentation Card
There’s no better words to explain this incredible presentation.
The room was brightly lit and airy with a dream-like ambience similar to that of the collection. The models stood side-by-side in their respective columns as spectators analyzed each ensemble standing in front of them. The vibrant prints paired with flowy and structured pieces played on both the whimsical dream world and that of the real.
Claudia Li’s SS18 collection was truly breathtaking.
