An intriguing title to say the least… Dangerous, but harmless. It sounds like an oxymoron. Still, in Dawei’s eye, the most fearful creature can be just as innocent as cat, full of tenderness.
For pre-Fall 2019, Dawei chose the most dangerous animal of legend – the dinosaurs to be the focal point of the collection.
Childlike drawings of dinosaurs came in ‘crazy’ fringes, and the ‘scary’ claw scratches are even cute in a way. Apart from the eye-catching knitwear and prints, dinosaurs are hidden in the silhouette, turning their spiky bones into asymmetrical ruffles and pleats. Dangerous animals are approaching, but there’s no need to be alarmed.
Loud and powerful, are not only to describe dinosaurs, but also the 80s vibe. DAWEI turned to the disco age of shoulder pads and shimmering fabrics, adding a nostalgia touch into his modern looks.
Dawei’s signature urban, minimal style are still playing the main role in the collection, with silk print total look, gingham halter neck dress, and winter staple wool coat, paired up with sporty high socks.
