When we spoke with the designer a month ago, she said to be driven by I-Ching’s “serene answer of how nature is continuously changing but through a pattern.” That’s why, after a year as busy as the start of the pandemic, reconnecting with nature was paramount to her brand’s craftsmanship.
Made by their new fabric method called Air-Ribbon, a sustainable technique that creates tiny balloon-style patterns in tinted organza, tulle, and velvet, the collection was heavily inspired by Mongolian yurts and their spirit modelled by their residents. In addition, the perception of time comes along in impossibly beaded headpieces, whose metal structure allows to create a visual effect of water drops frozen mid-air.
Through Air • Time, she honours those she met along the way and the beauty that has emerged from China's diverse culture. The tranquillity and energy that the landscapes of Inner Mongolia conveyed to her are key to achieving the gentleness that emanates from her Fall/Winter 2021 collection.
