Inspired by Wong Kar-wai’s cinematic masterpiece In The Mood For Love, the Oliver Spencer S/S ’20 collection is a celebration of the vibrant atmosphere of Hong Kong’s famous night markets. The runway show paid homage to the movie’s cinematography, taking you on a journey through the Hong Kong of the early 1960s, the collection is a reflection of the energy and colours of the era.
The show was dominated by an easy, deconstructed silhouette whilst delicate, new textures have been created by reworking traditional summer fabrics such as seersucker and light jersey. Striking colours such as teal and burnt orange are prominent in this collection; they are mixed with ecrus and contrasting blacks and navies to create an overall impression that is reflected in the metropolis that is Hong-Kong. From its monochromatic skyline to its tropical islands, descending into the vibrancy of its night markets.
