Claudia Li Debuts Spring 2019: New York Fashion Week

Claudia Li NYFW Spring 19

Represented by Linda Gaunt Communications.

The spring 2019 collection is inspired by the designer’s personal memories of a childhood spent in New Zealand.

Key colors come from nature: light blue from the open expanses of sky and ocean, a soft buttercup yellow from the Mount Cook lily, and a saturated magenta that resonates deep in Claudia Li’s memory from a painting of her mother’s in the house where she grew up.

Memory factors into the prints as well. Having walked in her mother’s garden as a child, oversized blooms are remembered from the vantage point of a small child. Original floral artwork was hand-drawn in the Claudia Li New York studio and applied across the collection as embroideries, hand-stitched appliqués and custom-printed fabrics.

The silhouette is comprised of core Claudia Li standards: exaggerated collars and sleeves, wide-legged jeans, layered outerwear, and the contrast between tailoring and fluid draping.

Season-specific elements include multicolor woven braids used across belts, straps and bag handles, as well as deliberate rouching on sleeves and along the waist to give outwear a new volume.

Overall, the collection demonstrates an evolved maturity: the spring 2019 collection is proposed as full looks that can be easily integrated into an everyday wardrobe. Its wearability reflects the pragmatic realities of a self-directed woman who has a taste for design and a clear point of view on the world.
