The Fall/Winter 2018 collections of Anveglosa, Harrison Wong, and Heaven Please+ have made it to the runways of New York City just in time for New York Fashion Week. Each of these designers has prepared collections that focus on bringing a new norm to the forefront of fashion. These designs support the idea of creativity, elegance, as well as versatility.
Annette Chan of Anveglosa’s goal for her Fall/Winter ’18 Collection was to encourage feminine creativity within each silhouette. Every look captures the essence of the divine woman while fusing sophistication and elegance. Chan’s designs feature beautiful shades of burgundy, white, and shiny black exemplified in layered leather. While the fabric spoke for itself, the only consistent accessory; a black beret, kept the classic aura of each look.
Harrison Wong found inspiration from Mark Rothko who often used blocks of bright color in his paintings. Wong used this inspiration by pairing grey with exuberant colors in structured silhouettes. Wong also incorporated gentle accents such as puffer coats that allow simple yet powerful variation within each look. A gradient pattern was used in his most colorful pieces to create significant contrast. Each ensemble showcased characteristics of sportswear while keeping its contemporary aesthetic.
Joint designers Yi Chan and Lary Cheung of Heaven Please+ wanted to bring a certain je ne sais quoi to simple clothing while experimenting with combining current and vintage trends. This season’s collection showcases bursts of cool mint green, sophisticated gray and metallic blue. Bold earrings and fashion-forward sneakers were among the few showcased accessories. Ruffles are utilized throughout the collection to emphasize the roomy ensembles while leather gloves maintain the austerity of each look.
