LOFT in the CITY
For his 2016 Spring/Summer Collection, Harrison Wong has turned to urban loft culture for inspiration. Lofts, created out of old factories and warehouses, celebrated the stark simplicity of concrete, steel and brick spaces with their high ceilings and simple form-follows-function industrial look. Wong's collection creates a similar aesthetic with his signature minimalism and geometric patterns and a mixing of industrial style with sport elements. Cement textured fabric is a key pattern in the collection and echoes the underlying industrial inspiration. The use of large metal grommets, buckles and zippers further creates the feel of industrial details on the oversized outerwear that is layered with voluminous pants and dresses. Bemberg fabric lends itself perfectly to help create a new sportswear look that is young yet at the same time embodies Wong’s unmistakable sophisticated edge.
