Yuhan Wang looked to dainty flower prints and romantic lace for her latest AW21 collection. The Chinese designer also managed to tap into themes of friendship and companionship this season through her 22-look collection that saw models holding hands and embracing each other physically, without masks. Shades of cream, moss, sky blue and black dominated the collection, whilst the painted deer print brought a sense of youthful playfulness in the collection.
18th-century dress codes also appeared to be a focal point for the designer, with key signifiers of the era appearing through the dresses, two-piece suits and thick brocades. Several of the looks featured intricate folds that gave the looks dimension and volume, whilst hemlines were frayed to the extremes. Look 4 ruled the collection as it saw watercolour painted sika deers on a pair of leggings, partnered with a fur coat that looked to have come straight off Bambi’s back. Yuhan Wang is a master of subdued femininity and this season was no exception, through a dainty and hyper-feminine collection, Wang reminded her audience that it’s time to dress up again and pack away the tracksuit for good.
