One of the main themes of (almost) all the collections for spring/summer 2013 – both those seen in showrooms, as well as those experienced between the stands at White Milano
, even those seen only through press releases – is fluo. Already seen, albeit in small doses, in the season that just ended, in a little less than 6 months there will be a riot of marker girls with questionable taste, which will walk the streets still convinced and happy to be “in fashion”. For this reason, finding out someone who can reinvent this trend, making it new, delving into most unexplored details and giving it a different sense, is an achievement. Jonathan Liang
has been called one of the most promising emerging young designers in 2009 at the Malaysian Fashion Week, and distinguished himself with a collection considered the best by Raffles Institute of Design in 2010. Its brand offers clean, minimal and tailoring lines, made strong by the talent of the creator. Spring/summer 2013 is characterized by the use of unexpected patterns and details, such as fluo or floral, on a range of garments with defined shapes, almost classical. Suits with structured jackets, pencil or roomy skirts, oversize shirts and tops emphasized by color or the clever use of transparency.
