Minki SS18 London Fashion Week

Designer Minki Cheng’s SS18 collection was inspired by a dream. A dream filled with bold shapes and colours, walking the line between quirky detail and refinement. Minki’s world is all aspects of everything, where workwear meets extravagant and indulgent 70s glamour in ruched organza and PVC. It is the sculptural frocks of Roberto Capucci and the atypical silhouettes of Verner Panton’s curvaceous chairs, alongside ethereal georgette dresses, oversized nylon jackets, and denim.

The Hong Kong born designer worked for Alexander McQueen following his graduation in 2012 from Central St Martins. Minki is known for his eclectic collections, using textiles and fabric treatments in ways that are exciting and unexpected.

Minki’s aesthetic is nostalgic, and yet modern. He uses vibrant colours and intricate textures, including incorporating appliquéd ribbon to add volume and dimension to the floaty chiffon and organza in this collection.

Oversized ruffles and cut and paste peplums adorned outerwear in shades of palest blush and slate, delivering dimension but also definition. These have become a signature look since his debut AW16 collection.

Against the backdrop of the epic Somerset House, Minki’s latest presentation was bold, beautiful, and a refreshing burst of delicious colour. Every shade under the sun was fair game in this latest offering, from a rare rosé to royal blue, khaki green, mouthwatering orange, oxford blue striped shirting and Barbie pink.

There was nothing flat, bland or basic about this collection; every single element and piece was daringly, boldly, unabashedly 3-dimensional. Whimsical, playful, high-impact and fun are all words we would use to describe the wonderful world of Minki.

With its colours, curves and creativity, this dreamy collection was one we didn’t want to wake up from.
