Label: Claudia Li

Need to Know: After confronting tumult in her possess life head-on final year, for her sophomore NYFW outing, engineer Claudia Li riffed on a thought of self-preservation, of rebirth in a face of hardship. Boasting a credentials in excellent arts, and carrying cut her teeth as a womenswear engineer during J.W.Anderson, New Zealand–raised Li’s minimalism is of a comfortable stripe. Fall finds her embracing styles with varying sorts of cocoon-like appeal: far-reaching strips of fabric, curled to armor-like effect; belled sweater cuffs; deep, sculptural folds. If on paper those ideas sound heavy, make no mistake: Li’s got a pleasing eye for lightness. One voile shirtdress we could see apropos a habit staple, while gently fraying cream tulle spilled out from underneath those flared cashmere sleeves, and prolonged panels combined a pleasing clarity of transformation to a sleeves of a cloak in dry mauve. Where Li will no doubt enthuse legions of followers, though, is with her denim. Sourced from both Italy and L.A., here it came churned into raver-esque mega-flares, a trench, and—most showstoppingly—a jean coupler that gimlet dramatic, roughly Victorian sleeves done adult of hundreds on hundreds of bunched sapphire yarns.

Where to find it: Li’s stockists are still TBD—but what we can contend is that a engineer is in a routine of confirming some top-tier, tastemaking retailers.
