A Wednesday night in Paris during fashion week last September could have been a random Wednesday, or the communal one to head into with fashion friends and the music-lover ones.
Designer Yang Li knows how to get fashion pilgrims; it’s his musical choice that congregated them all at Palais de Tokyo to view his spring-summer 2018 women show.
His garments only exist with acoustics and heavily lipsticked models.
There were gothic references accompanied by notes of red and fuchsia bringing floral optimism as never seen before.
Michael Gira – the American singer and front man of experimental rock band Swans – gave an unusual live performance undressing the collaboration with the designer for the occasion, or their mutual obsession; music and fashion.
An obsession we are unable to judge because of its tremendous effects on Li’s world all reflected on garments and the way we perceive them.
Voices, the singer’s and designer’s, melted into a visual matter we all enjoyed. It wasn’t random at all, instead introvert and beautiful.
