Designer: Sandy Liang

Location: New York Fashion Week

Season: FW19

Key Pieces: The multi-texture fleece jacket with a pop of leopard print in slide #10.

Editor’s Notes: Sandy Liang is one of those fashion labels downtown New York kids have always known about, as well as stylish, cosmopolitan women of the world. In recent seasons, the guys have been officially issued their late pass.

Liang's speciality lies in clothing that deftly toes the line between cool kid-casual with the signature aesthetic that really defines a standout designer. It also doesn't hurt that she has a pretty cool inner circle of friends, including restaurateur Danny Bowien, founder of Mission Chinese Food.

The ethnic ties aren't the only bond they share—Liang's family, like many Chinese immigrants, also made it in America's restaurant business. Liang's parents opened up the legendary Congee Village, a Cantonese restaurant that's been a longtime local favorite.

Her clothing speaks the language of native New Yorkers, equal parts elevated but approachable, and oozing with utilitarian drip. Take for example, her oversized fleece jackets and pullovers that have become a hit with some of New York's most stylish menswear dudes as of late. For Fall/Winter 2019, we see a few new renditions, mixing patches of camouflage and neutral grays.

Liang also showed how in touch she is with the zeitgeist by putting plenty of her models in pairs of HOKA ONE ONE sneakers, the comfort shoe that's getting a second life in street style. Don't be surprised to see her name popping up even more in 2019.
