1. Yuhan Wang
For several seasons, Yuhan Wang has been garnering fans of her strategic draping and nostalgic wallpaper printed frocks, modernised with sharp blazers and sexy lace. This season, Wang’s collection entitled “Venus in Furs” draws inspiration from an 1870 book of the same name by Austrian writer Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, which explores the ideas of femininity and felinity. “My main focus this season is to make women feel proud of who they are,” she says.
In addition, this sentiment translated to cat motifs sprinkled onto her signature silhouettes. Some are hand-painted in watercolour over a parakeet green knitwear; others involved a faux leopard print coat that matched Wang’s cat who made a cameo in the show.
