A trip to the snowy landscapes of Hokkaido Japan served as both aesthetic and functional inspiration for Victor Li’s second ready-to-wear collection for Fall 2019.
The collection shows continued sensitivity to color, with a seasonal palette inspired by the trip and pulled from gradients of winter sunsets and reflections in fresh snow. Victor proposes a sophisticated, masculine take on pastels – pinks mixed with a touch of beige; blues anchored in various tones of grey and dark green. The designer’s emerging signature of contrast color expands in the collection, with solid sweaters and zip-ups come with two-tone stripe detailing along shoulders and cuffs.
The winter landscape also refocused the collection on the functional needs of a traveling man. Cashmere – lightweight, soft, luxurious – becomes a staple material; cold-weather accessories make their debut; outwear is given renewed focus across trenches, bombers and new to the season, a signature puffer; and, sure to be a hit across multiple ages, the cashmere travel track pant is proposed in a variety of shades.
