LFW: Minki AW17 Presentation
Hong Kong’s Minki Cheng brought his unique sense of playful, experimental design to the London catwalks via stint at Central Saint Martins. Upbeat and unselfconscious, the AW17 collection from the label explored “the beauties of nature versus the brutality of city life,” as well as some distinctly watery themes (‘gone fishin’). Wave formations rolled through the curves of fuzzy colour block coats in bold bright shades and there were plenty of head to toe nautical stripes, albeit at angles and faring way beyond the traditional navy and white. We particularly loved the fishhook print dress in a dreamy sea blue silk, its fluidity enhanced by the dance moves of the model wearing it.
