Xiao Li : RCA Collection
I am blown away at this really stunning collection from RCA Graduate Xiao Li. After reading about her numerous times via Sussie Bubble‘s blog Style Bubble I began doing my own research. Xiao Li has a great list of affiliations ranging from Central Saint Martins College of Art Innovation Fashion Lab, Gareth Pugh Studio and Alexander McQueen. This collection is inspired by Architecture as well as 1960′s Balenciaga attire. Li’s interpretation of full bloussant sleeves and dropped shoulder seams really modernizes each look. The collection is like willy wonka and Balenciaga fused together and regurgitated with a youthful spirited. I’m a big fan of unconventional material plays and odd silhouettes. Its truly a gift to meld those different elements without loosing the garments wear-ability and saleability.
