HAR­RI­SON WONG

Asia Dreams - - THE JOYS OF SHOPPING: JAKARTA -

Al­ways at­tracted to de­sign, Har­ri­son Wong stud­ied fash­ion in Hong Kong for two years be­fore study­ing for his mas­ter's de­gree at the UK'S Lon­don Col­lege of Fash­ion. Fol­low­ing his dream, he set up his epony­mous la­bel draw­ing on the in­spi­ra­tion he finds in art. His 1996 de­but saw him win the Hong Kong Young De­signer's Con­test and The Grand Prix Con­test in Ja­pan.

Al­ready seen on cat­walks in Paris, Mi­lan, Shang­hai, Taipei and Syd­ney, Har­ri­son launched his Fall/win­ter 2017 col­lec­tion at New York Fash­ion Week this Fe­bru­ary. This col­lec­tion, Modern Monas­tic, takes in­spi­ra­tion from the spare, aus­tere cut of monas­tic robes, evok­ing a com­bi­na­tion of ven­er­a­ble tra­di­tion and stark moder­nity, play­ing with dif­fer­ent tex­tures to make the stark colours more in­ter­est­ing. The un­der­stated el­e­gance and edgy, ag­gres­sive de­sign is very pop­u­lar with fash­ion-aware men keen to in­cor­po­rate art and de­sign into their daily life.
