For fall, Uma Wang looked to disparate cultural symbols and a wide range of ultra-tactile fabrics to construct her motif-blending collection.
Donning wide-brimmed hats and broad-strapped bags, her models exhibit her unique and sumptuous designs in a nod to the idyllic rancher – an earthy, nostalgic aesthetic in stimulating textures and muted tones.
Looking ahead to cooler days, Uma’s garments combine wool and eco-alpaca fur, a sustainably harvested textile, to craft elegant and feminine knits with just a hint of her avant-garde roots.
Cozy cardigans and sweaters are dyed with deep, rich magentas that run alongside lighter, caramel browns.
Meanwhile, decorative floral prints sprawl across the lightly embellished surfaces of her layer-ready jackets and coats.
Fringed edges and generous silhouettes mimic the folk hero of the pastoral Gaucho, the cowboy of the South American pampas – without sacrificing the bold femininity Uma is renowned for.
A master of both transitional wear and full–on autumn dressing, Uma Wang’s vast library of inspiration encourages us to step out of our figurative stylistic stables and into the exciting unknown landscape of fashion to come.
