She’s become a master at sculptural draping and yet, she’s only two seasons into her eponymous label. Designer Claudia Li, a former womenswear designer at J.W. Anderson, pursued the theme of self preservation for her latest collection. After a personal event shocked her world, she was inspired to incorporate knots, bows and panels to form an amour against the body – especially around the most fragile parts, like ankles and wrists. Not only do we love the ingenious way she’s able to make robust and powerful silhouettes feel lightweight and still a bit vulnerable, we’re just smitten with what she’s done with denim. I mean, just look at the denim jacket with billowing sleeves constructed of woven indigo yarns. Incredible!
