COLLECTION | Jamie Wei Huang

Jamie Wei Huang returns to Fashion Scout this season showcasing, as ever, a lesson in minimalist detailing and quality workmanship. Huang's AW15 collection, inspired by the film nymphomaniac explores the realms of obsession and constraint as she beautifully juxtaposes structure with fluidity.

Thick leather buckles and harness detailing create a sense of restriction throughout the collection which is contrasted against the billowing flow of wide-legged trousers and oversized, masculine tailored suits. Models arms were often seen encased in fur stoles and long cut-out leather gloves adding to a feeling of entrapment. Silhouettes varied throughout Huang's collection, ranging from straight cut dresses to voluminous trousers and skirts. Pin-stripe detailing was combined with leather and fur elements, making for the ultimate in tactile collections. Oversized leather tasselling and pony skin backpacks along with ultra high split detailing perfectly complement Huang's exploration of addiction throughout her collection.

A minimal colour palette of black, white and navy is occasionally injected with vibrant teal and pink tones throughout Huang's collection whilst high neck detailing throughout creates a further sense of confinement in the midst of fluidity.
