We had a chance to discover the new collection of Huishan Zhang at Somerset House during Fashion Week. Huishan Zhang is a very followed creator these days as he’s one of the representative of the new Made in China. Born in Qingdao, China. Huishan is a fellow of Central Saint Martins. He worked for a year at Dior, but he directly launched his own label as he was a student.
The collection demonstrated a fusion between Asian influences in the forms of the outfits, meeting a very European 60s preppy attitude. But instead of diving into BCBG feelings, the designer offered a twist of impertinence: an asymmetrical motif here and there, a cheeky transparency on certain dresses, worn by the sublime Becca Horn.
