Liu Yong X Rishikensh @NYFW SS2020

The last show I attended this NYFW was Liu Yong’s collaboration with Rishikensh. Liu Yong widely popular in China and regarded as one of the top ten designers in China, had his show at Spring Studios on the sixth day of Fashion Week, and it was greatly anticipated. There was a noticeable buzz in the air and the venue was filled to capacity. Focusing on athleisure and using recycled textiles Liu Yong seeks to create garments one can move in, and to do so with a slow fashion mindset.

The collection was everything one had hoped for: bold, colorful, and dynamic; with touches of trending elements like electric tie-dye patterns, logo emblazoned accessories, and a plethora of logo studded straps adorned on everything from belts to shoulder straps and cuffs. Neons were balanced by neutrals offering a palette that represents the full spectrum of the balance of life.

Tie-dye along with logos figured prominently in the collection, and was not produced traditionally; where the fabric is dyed before construction, but after; creating intentionally striking patterns. Only organic dyes were used and it shows in the purity of the colors.

The lineup takes athleisure to a new level, and while one could certainly work-out in the garments, they would would work just as well for a casual night out on the town. The athleisure trend is not going anywhere any time soon, and Liu Yong’s collection is quite the celebration of this oh so wearable trend.

    I could live in athleisure wear so I’m really quite happy that it’s sticking around. This collection is so fun and it’s really cool that it was created using recycled textiles. I hope that this will be something more designers move towards as its a big step towards sustainability.

    This collection is amazing! I love the vibrant colors and patterns in athleisure form. I’m definitely guilty of wearing only gray/black for athleisure, so it’s refreshing to see something different. I can see why Liu Yong is so popular in China, I love his artistic vision!

    I love athleisure and I find some to be very chic and appealing however, I must say this collection is a touch (okay, maybe a huge touch) too funky for my liking.
