Chinese born, Japanese-based designer Leonard Wong presented his second ready-to-wear collection of crisply cut black and white separates for the fiercely real woman in Le Marais of Paris. His new logo is in braille – stressing the significance of touch and the feeling of fabric to skin in his work. Wong has focused much on leather in his pervious experimental collections, which is hereby translated into more wearable cotton garments.
The collection exudes a refined minimalism. Clean, crisp lines of a monotone colour palette allow us to focus on the impeccable details, such as the interaction of two types of leather in a pencil skirt. Hints of oriental influences are found in kimono-esque robes and shirt collars; a true testament to Wong’s roots.
