Swarovski collective member Haizhen Wang showed a monochromatic selection for SS16.
Awkward angles and untraditional shapes were the order of the day at Haizhen Wang. It was all about small changes for a greater overall effect. Remember the golden ratio from secondary school maths? The idea that there’s a perfectly eye-pleasing proportion for shapes, yeah Haizhen Wang threw that out of the window for oversized shapes and asymmetric cuts.
An otherwise black, white and grey collection was splashed with red on perhaps the most wearable designs of the line. Shoulder-less crops in ruby red with co-ordinated three quarter trousers? Yes, please. Combined with the box-fresh white sneakers in the show, you’ve got your new night out look ready.
All that glitters
Swarovski crystals adorned gowns and compiled chokers to die for. Thick set rectangular gems were studded together to form cracked edges. Fierce and sharp, they added the final finesse needed in the loosely silhouetted collection to elevate it onto the catwalk.
