Today we bring light on Robert Wun, a London College of Fashion graduate who’s been on the London scene since his graduation, back in 2014. A Hong-Kong native, Wun has established his brand in London but enjoys quite a success in Asia. Never straying away from his aesthetic, Wun has proven that creative consistency pays off. His S/S 2018 collection, dubbed “Laboratory Diamond” is a regal offering, with ruffles-for-days, heels that would drive any fashion editor mad with love, and a real sense of silhouetting. Styled by London based stylist Oscar Chik, each look is an ode to grandeur. The collection was inspired by the conscience of the modern consumer, someone in need of individuality and a bit of pizzazz. Show pieces? Indeed, it takes a bit of courage to wear Robert Wun daily, they’re made for the show girls of the world. Yet, Wun toned down his artistry with pieces like a re-worked trench-coat that is a definite statement or asymmetrical skirts that exude chic. Wun wants to dress his sophisticated, fashion conscious audience. Another point of reference comes from a recent trip to Peru, where the designer discovered the country’s incredible geology. Indeed, he brought back minerals like Pyrites, Augelites, and Atacamites to his London based studio where he used them as the principal stimuli for the collection. Should you feel brave and fabulous, Robert Wun is stocked at several concept stores including Henrik Vibskov, both in New-York City and Copenhagen.
