For Spring Summer 2020, the Victor Li Collection was inspired by the desert landscape and artisanal crafts of Marrakech.
With its prismatic cityscape and architecture, Marrakesh has been a haven for global artists, past and present. Through the rolling dunes of the Sahara, camel trails cast sweeping shadows in the sunbaked sand. Nearby, throngs of glowing lamps light up the medinas as the pink evening sky descends beneath the riads.
Victor Li distills the allure of this desert haven captured in his personal album of photographs and memories into his collection for Spring Summer 2020. The collection combines refreshing graphics and a balanced color palette imbued with disarmingly boyish charm.. Illustrative motifs for his knitwear draw inspiration from intricately-carved arabesque patterns to hand-knotted rugs. Custom jacquards and prints are inspired by a mirage of abstract desert landscapes and artisanal crafts.
This season’s relaxed silhouettes, from billowy trench coats to drop-shoulder robes, are a continuation of Victor’s study on contemporary proportions and fit, with the subtle influence of patchwork and contrast stitching lending a rustic feel to the fresh aesthetic.
While each garment acts as a precious souvenir of Victor’s memory of Marrakesh, together, as the Victor Li Spring Summer 2020 collection, becomes an oasis of effortless style designed for the next generation of gentlemen.
