Collection Displays Wang’s Trademark Flowing Fabrics And Limited Color Palette
Young Beijing-based designer, Vega Zaishi Wang (王在实), one of Jing Daily’s favorite emerging Chinese designers, is quickly establishing herself as one of the most innovative and interesting figures in China’s burgeoning home-grown fashion scene. Since returning to China from London in 2008, following her graduation from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, Wang quickly got to work building her eponymous brand, which officially launched in August 2010. Wang’s first boutique, a combination workshop/storefront located in Beijing’s Jianwai Soho, has seen no shortage of attention from local Beijing media and fashion elites, and in less than a year Wang has become a favorite among celebrities like actress Fan Bingbing.
Taking a distinctly different approach than last year’s “Cape” collection, which centered on dramatic, flowing pieces in bold blues and reds, recently Wang debuted her S/S 2012 collection, “Like a Piece of Her.” Featuring pieces in a restrained palette of navy blue, black, cream and rich red, the collection is at once more angular, tailored and still playful than other recent collections. Come next spring, we wouldn’t be surprised to see these designs worn by China’s more fashion-forward types.
