I just laid eyes on Xiao Li's work while at Stylesight's trend seminar last week and got the instinctive feeling she is a big key into the future. Now it seems her name is popping up everywhere! Big congratulations to Xiao Li for winning the Diesel Award at the lastest competition of ITS 2013!!!
She is inspired by Architecture and the original Balenciaga, moulding knitwear with silicone and spacer fabric, I'm not very knowledged in these areas of materials but it sounds very new and the outlook is just so refreshing.. From both the concept point of view and the aesthetic of end product point of view, it's a win win for me. Absolutely stunning!
