The creative minds behind the brand want us to reminisce about the past but dress for the future. This is the final chapter of the glorious history and the curtain-raiser of a new era. So how to interpret the collision between the past and the present? With this proposition, DAWEI embarked on a journey of the Fall/Winter 2023 collection.
DAWEI’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection is a rediscovery of the idea of what the 19th century might have been like, but above all, a collusion between what has happened and what will happen. Colours of beige and grey, the brown checkered pattern, sky blue, green, purple and yellows are all part of the moving picture seen on the runway. Asymmetrical, voluminous dresses move over the models’ bodies and fill the space. Despite the typical inspiration of 19th-century courts and palaces, these compositions are made to serve everyday life.
The corset silhouetted with sharp lines, the accordion-like skirt that can be fluidly stretched, the dramatically designed hemline of the coat, the purposely placed tab and the fluffy gigot sleeves……these are all marks found by DAWEI from the past within the palace. Meanwhile, the hand-sewn sunray pleats have added a stately dimension to the collection. Like winding rivers, the wrinkles horizontally or vertically spread over the pieces. Following the undulation of the body, the curves of elegance are depicted spontaneously.
In addition to the dominant colour of beige and grey, the brown checkered pattern is as vibrant as the ridge of autumn, and the delighted sky blue, grass green, aubergine purple, and goose yellow are all parts of the moving scenes written purely by the vivid colours, instead of any complicated patterns.
The practicality and relaxation of DAWEI are also strongly shown in the collection: adding an asymmetric effect to a voluminous skirt has dissipated its solemnity and highlighted the urban sense; patching soft knitted sleeves to a top made of stiff fabric has increased its comfort; incorporating sporty materials and elements such as space cotton and elastic band in a majestic tailor has had it look more effortless; making a single piece which has various wears and matches, has created feelings to the wearer of freely travelling through diverse scenarios, as unexpected surprises injected into the ordinary life.
