“Dew” is Jamie Wei Huang’s interpretation of tradition. Every collection begins with a story, and Huang’s SS18 offering was inspired by indigenous Taiwanese tribes and their stories; not just the expected representation of aboriginal culture in folk art but also the real experiences of the mountains and the communities.

These themes were expressed in the garments via pink stripes and colourful glass beads, the playful use of denim, cutouts, and a crisp colour palette to emphasise the exquisite tailoring and attention to detail. The shapes were fresh, clean, and beautiful.

Classic silhouettes were turned on their side, giving a glimpse of the unexpected; a springtime trench in pin-striped denim with a striking cut out back; a dramatic waterfall sleeve to update a shirtdress with pockets fashioned back to front, playing on the distinctive style of traditional western denim shirts.

“Dew” represented a collection of memories, fragments of stories and moments. It documented these moments in delicate detail and fresh, clear colours. The collection was an ode to nostalgia while also embracing the very present moments and stories within this indigenous community.

This collection continues to explore Huang’s desire for self-expression through fabrication and textiles in her signature elongated silhouettes. Materials like denim were used in new and unpredictable ways; instead of the stiff, hardwearing jeans and jackets we associate with the fabric, Huang made it soft, draping, and delicate, playing on the use of pockets in the archetypal western denim cowboy shirt.

Classic florals were laser cut into crisp white cotton in a reversal of traditional embroidered silks. Simple blue and beige denim, soft colourful stripes, and geometric silhouettes gave a fresh look to the collection. With the drifting notes of the piano and the delicate innovation, SS18 had the feel of a fashion show circa classic Chanel with pieces that were rich with pared back, easy elegance.
