Literally Wearing Hong Kong’s Nightlife by Vivienne Tam at NYFW

Nightlife and neon have served me as escapes and indulgences many times.

As a travel and nightlife connoisseur, I was thrilled that Hong Kong, with its neon lights and inherent vibrancy, was the core inspiration for Vivienne Tam‘s runway collection. The same designer who chose Texan cowboys and NASA as inspirations for last season’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) runway show. Urbanism is necessary to my existence, and the outfits had it pulsating through their offering.

There was a clear urban style that was evident through the striped neon dresses illuminated in blue, asymmetric dresses and sports shoes paired together, or the crushed leather leggings with oversized tops.

Asymmetry in fact was a key trend, across all the sequined dresses, metallic striped skirts, jacquard bomber jackets, lace lined skirts and the shimmering embelishments that caked so many outfits and accessories, including an airplane printed bag and a car motif sweatshirt! Almost gender neutral in certain ways, especially with the outerwear, this was another out-of-the-box season for the designer.

The differences in fabric and print choices made for an elaborate and detailed collection, with structured outerwear and overcoats balancing the frills in the trousers, and the red velvets offset with the draped silks and sequined feminism. Yet another delightful and futuristic collection that showcased that the coming times would be experimental, for sure.
