Elegant and unconventional, the Ms MIN Fall Winter 2018 collection reflects designer Min Liu buoyant sanguine outlook as she welcomed her first child. Silhouettes, often slightly oversized and cut away from the body, play with motif and metaphor. Deconstructed corsetry, a nod to shifting dimensions, boyish cuts and uniform-inspired tailoring inspired by the designer’s new son. Crisply cut smock dresses, pleated skirts, double breasted peacoats, and timeless plaids, riff on prep school styling. Cozy mohair knits woven with blessings 歲歲平安 ("May peace be with you year after year") celebrate the joy of new existence.

“Cutting away from the body allows the body to decide a garment’s silhouette,” says Liu of the collection’s exquisite tailoring. Working with an array of French jacquards, Italian cottons, superfine Japanese wools and silks, and other exclusively manufactured custom textiles; fabrics are wrapped, layered, asymmetrical, voluminous, or fitted; are always sharply cut. The brand’s signature balance between masculine and feminine seen across sharply minimal suits, trousers, and shirts; construed with traditional menswear techniques and softened with feminine accents. Chinoiserie detailing another hallmark of the brand, an utterly modern three-piece tuxedo is given a lush oriental twist with frog closures and high collar.

Celebrated for her elegant outerwear, this season juxtaposes Ms MIN’s much sought after belted coats in ultra-soft double-face cashmere, with capacious down duffels in high tech weather resistant Japanese fabric, and sublime hooded jackets in ivory double-faced wool. Modern utility and sportif themes are found in cuffed and collard jumpsuits and patch pocket wrap dresses, designed in washed denim; and refined leisure looks that pair flowing drawstring trousers with architecturally cut, raw edge tops in lightweight taupe wool.
