All eyes are on Paris as Fashion Week takes over the French capital. Head to our Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 hub to find all the latest news from the industry’s best houses, brands, and designers.
Another designer showcasing his upcoming seasonal collection at Paris Fashion Week is London-based Yang Li. Li then gives us a look at his FW19 menswear onslaught, dubbed “SAMIZDAT,” which is a Russian term meaning “self published.” Samizdat is often used to describe literature that has been copied and distributed by an individual, as it is forbidden by the Soviet government.
Yang Li’s FW19 menswear draws on Gothic influences, featuring a dark color palette with pops of burgundy. We see a trench coat with Gothic-style printed detailing, graphic T-shirts and hoodies, a bomber jacket with multiple label hits, and a hooded parka, among other items. Patent leather is also used heavily throughout the range, noted on pants, gloves and more.
Scroll through the gallery above to get a feel for Yang Li’s FW19 menswear collection, then take to the comments to leave us your thoughts.
