UMA WANG | FALL / WINTER 2012
As one of the leading internationally successful Chinese designers, it is no surprise that Uma Wang’s Fall / Winter 2012 collection is a subtly clever collection. Wang shows off her unique talent of being able to mix different fabrics and textures in a way that creates strong yet simple pieces. Her Chinese Textile University and Central Saint Martin’s background, led to her forming the foundation for her design success.
The Fall / Winter 2012 collection represents the Uma Wang staple minimalist look. Incorporating classic cuts and androgynous silhouettes, yet still maintaining aspects of femininity through the cutout draped fabrics. The Autumnal dark muted tones show the layering of exaggerated long fabrics and materials, and the simplistic hair and make-up allow the wearable collection to speak for itself in an understated yet powerful way.
A splash of scarlet shows a feminine side to the overall look, and adds detail to the simple collection, alongside the creams and beiges running in sharp shapes throughout.
