After a successful debut at New York Fashion Week in 2013, Steven Tai’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection marks the designer’s first foray on British soil.
This season sees the Steven Tai woman grew up through a break up. Leftover with her ex-lover’s wardrobe, she pairs it up with her own favorite pieces. Lacking sentiment, she cuts the clothes into shreds – creating a look that is both masculine and casual. aw14 lookbook high_res_005 aw14 lookbook high_res_006 aw14 lookbook high_res_007 aw14 lookbook high_res_008

Oversized tailored coats are mixed with lively textures that create a feeling of nonchalant. Known for pushing technical boundaries, steventai once again takes textile experimentation to another level by exploring a rare embroidery technique that lends a three-dimensional effect on fabrics, producing a unique woollen texture seen on the collection’s jackets, tops and dresses. aw14 lookbook high_res_003 aw14 lookbook high_res_004 aw14 lookbook high_res_008 aw14 lookbook high_res_009

Citing the artist Vlatka Horvat as inspiration, fabrics are deconstructed and frayed while plastics and technical nylon is laser cut, injecting a sense of modernity into tweeds, wools and jacquards.
To give the collection an overall boyish mood mixed with a sense of luxury, the collection boasts a palette of navy and emerald with hints of peachy pink – indicating a slightly more mature side of the Steven Tai woman.
