Designer Jamie Wei Huang’s SS18 collection, “Dew”, was inspired by the fragmented recounting and retelling of personal experience. It was a concept drawn from Huang’s reflection on her own traditional Taiwanese culture, and captured by the beautiful, hesitantly accumulative piano piece which instigated her show.

 

The story began in stripes. Blues, pinks and greens growing in depth and vivacity with each piece, a gradual solidifying of colours to correlate that of re-emerging memory; the punctuation of bold reds, yellows and cobalt in the shoes and accessories, providing those colourful splashes of certainty which continue to emerge throughout the collection.

Huang’s Spring/Summer designs favour easy-fit clothing; wedding dresses and jumpsuits tying into her signature style of elongated silhouettes with a focus on creating contemporary fashion for the modern woman.

Wedding Dresses

The concept of construction was apparent in the rough-cut hems, sewn on pockets and undisguised use of zips, drawstrings and metallic rings which both decorated the pieces and acted as functional elements of the designs.

Creative cut-outs were another standout feature, with gaping knees and bare-backed jackets building on the impression of fragmented recollection, while asymmetric designs alluded to the inevitable incompleteness of memory.

Denim-look fabrics, and the brave contrasting of colour-block socks with easy slip-on sandals concluded the collection with a sense of layered individuality, promoting self-expression through contemporary fashion.

Originally from Taiwan, Huang graduated from Central Saint Martins College in London in 2012, launching her designer label Jamie Wei Huang to great critical acclaim in 2013; winning both the “Designer For Tomorrow” award, and the “Elle talent Award” for her AQ14 collection. Huang’s designs are now sold internationally in luxury retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Dover Street Market, David Jones Sydney and mimma ninni.

nike team up with dover street market

Nike have teamed up with Dover Street Market to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their Air Force 1 shoe to give the design a special make over.

The original design was released in 1948, the same year that London hosted their first Olympic Games so they have a particular significance considering this summers activities.

The two brand have bought the design right up to date using Ventile, a material developed in Manchester a fabric used during the war because it's so hard wearing.

As you'll see in the image above London's Dover Street Market address 17 - 18 is printed on the shoes tongue giving them a smart yet simple finish.

 

Dover Street Market are being very active at the moment. They have now paired with Mastermind Japan to bring out a range of simplistic black and white Ts and perfect cut denim jeans.

Mastermind Japan is sadly closing its doors next year which really is a shame so this collaboration needs to be snapped up while it can.

Especially for Dover Street Market Ginza, mastermind JAPAN produced a pair of special black denim, all pieces feature both DSM and mastermind branding and you can find them at the new DSM Ginza store, that celebrated its opening yesterday.
