Influenced by Anselm Kiefer’s Installation work, JUN LI Spring Summer 2017 menswear collection transforms the sensory experience into layering effects of the garments. Entwined with a riot of raw edges and accent materials, the visual and emotional impact is re-experienced. Like being in an after-scene of raging storm, a silent shock of destruction piercing right through the witness’s heart. To Li, the force of destruction inspires and urges its counterbalance – the power to recreate.
The craftsmanship of the collection lies within the construction of the garment. Without fusing, the canvassed pieces are transparent and lightweight; hand stitching brings together style and ease. Expertly tailored for a fitting form, exposed seam accented in suiting canvas which is traditionally known as the internal construction of a tailor jacket.
