Min Wu graduated this year at London’s College of Fashion with collection “Schizophrenia”, inspired by series “Solid Light” by artist Anthony McCall and by vase “Schizo” by studio OOOMS.
Sculptural, theatrical and designed according to an ideal of femininity, the collection of this young fashion designer was made with modern materials like neoprene and viscose.
The folds present throughout the series evoke the lines of vase “Schizo”. Particularly the piece with the sleeveless coat, in which the spaces between pleats almost seem translucent, creating the effect of division, therefore suggesting an idea of schizophrenia, the concept of the collection.
McCall’s influence is evident in Wu’s use of color. The Chinese fashion designer hand-dyed the pieces to ensure a gradient shading from dark to light and vice versa, using purples and bright blues that contrast with the predominant white fabric.
And the recurring element of the fold is also present in the plastic heel of the shoes. A detail that illuminates this collection from below, highlighting its 90s flavor with a contemporary twist.

Designed with a bold, modern woman in mind, Min Wu uses interlacing lines and fluid shapes to create a strong visual contrast. The unique combination of unusual materials gives an other-worldly sense to the collection, bringing together lightness and an air of easy elegance.

Min Wu continues to explore the original beauty that is born from the deliberate combination of functional materials, with particular emphasis on technology and the reflection of this in the world today.

虽然伦敦时装周上有很多毕业于皇家艺术学院(RCA)与中央圣马丁(CSM)的设计师,但近年伦敦时装学院(LCF)的势头也是不错的哟!越来越多学生一毕业就就出现在了伦敦时装周这个国际舞台上,MIN WU就是其中的一位。
2013才刚毕业的她,一毕业就在伦敦成立自己的工作室,并且参加了这个伦敦时装周fashion scout的一场发布会。发布会的现场很特别,是一种以静态展的形式展现,模特穿着设计师的衣服定定地站在一个大荧幕前,屏幕里投射着各种颜色的类似星形的图案在一个圆环内变幻转动,而两边悬挂着两个大大的白气球,再加上模特的脸庞与妆容看起年龄较小,感觉这像是一场专为“内心还住那位小女孩”的成年人们精心设计的时装秀。
虽说静态展示与T台相比,舞台的张力与吸引力给人带来的瞬间冲击力少了许多,但两小时的展示反而让人有足够的时间,慢慢地欣赏衣服的每一个细节——如果不是材料与质感特别好的服装,还未必经得起如此近距离的把玩与耐看。
值得强调的一点事,模特身上诸如耳环等配饰,包括衣服上的细节,都是用是用最新兴起的3D打印机打印出来的,很有意思。
