Xu Zhi RTW Fall 2017
February 25, 2017 - fall Denim
Like so many designers a London-based, Chinese-born Xu Zhi took a deconstructed track for fall, branch out a sophisticated, raw-edged collection full of patchwork jeans, movable napa leather, and lots of palm braiding and embroidery.
The engineer showed his collection during Teatro Armani, and it stood adult to that immeasurable space, with pieces including wide-bottom, high-waisted trousers pieced together with frayed, dim and faded denim fabrics. A dim denim fit came with cropped, fringed trousers.
Where there wasn’t a tender denim edge, there was border — silky and swingy from a hem of brief dry rose or light gray skirts; as fluttery pieces of leather during a front of a brief jacket, a hem of a prolonged leather dress or a zigzagging seams of other sheer skirts. Zhi also disfigured and festooned delicate, hand-braided ropes of chronicle into hardly there restraint tops, that were among a stars of this polished, firmly edited show.
Backstage, a engineer was meditative about a tragedy between a frail and a powerful. “I wanted to uncover tellurian emotions by a fabric — pieces that demeanour as if they’re descending apart, though are unequivocally holding together,” he said.
