LFW Feb 14: Min Wu
Min Wu is wasting no time getting her distinctive label out in the fashion arena since graduating from the London College of Fashion last year. Inspired by technology and nature, Wu further develops the aesthetic of her MA graduate collection which centers on exploring the work of multi-disciplinary artist Anthony McCall.
Extremely supple wool in shades of blue and orange off set the teal green spacer fabric and white power mesh, highlighted by flashes of gold accessories. Digitally printed colours of pale blue gradually disappear into white, reminiscent of a mesmerising, ever changing blue sky. Fabrics are joined by spiral sculptures which are echoed in the coiled earrings and contrast binding, all of which bring a refined three dimensional element to the collection.
Designed with a bold modern woman in mind, Wu uses interlacing lines and fluid shapes to create a strong visual contrast. The unique combination of unusual materials gives an otherworldly sense to the collection, bringing together lightness and an air of easy elegance.
Min Wu continues to explore the original beauty that is born from the deliberate combination of functional materials, with particular emphasis on technology and the reflection of this in the world today.
