Uma Wang’s Pre-Spring Collection is a nod to what’s to come: inner strength channeled through nature.
Characterized by large maroon roses set against flowing, coffee-dyed fabrics, this capsule delivery focuses on feel, form and flora as a mode of dressing.
The effect is as if one is wearing their own secret garden, with all of the poise, intellect and intimate confidence that comes with such a concept.
The pieces are inspired by the magnetic pull of nature and Uma’s travel post-lockdown – a recent trip to North Africa and its grand desert vistas is found in this earthy palette.
In the cuts, distinctive menswear elements contrast against the femininity of her flora-inspired prints for an aesthetic wholly Uma.
Uma Wang continues to strike a unique path within the world of fashion and design – electing to harness lasting balance within her work rather than chase the ephemeral high of what’s popular.
Ultimately, the collection reads as a referendum on freedom and the places it is found: within the grand vistas, the secret gardens and the innermost parts of the self.
