HKFG EDITION -
THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER
Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF) continues the successful streak of organising international fashion campaign HKFG (formerly Fashion Guerilla) since 2013 by turning the spotlight on Hong Kong designers in the Paris Fashion Week this season.
The creativity of Hong Kong design talent will continue to shine in front of an international audience of buyers and media in the Fashion Week through the special program HKFG Edition. Two homegrown labels PONDER.ER and THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER present their Autumn/Winter 2021 collections in two solo digital presentation in the Paris Fashion Week.
About the collection
For the past year, all of us have been forced to stay home for an unusually long period due to the pandemic situation. The “work from home” experience has allowed us to have more time to explore the most familiar place. Yet, this place may also be somewhere we paid the least attention to in the past. It is so easy for us to take it for granted and miss out the fun and loveable parts of it. Giving them time to explore, the Autumn/Winter 2021 collection is inspired by the concept of “home”. Many details are being inspired by the elements of furniture, tiles, pattern, texture and technique etc.
Whipstitches have been applied in different styles, inspired by how the designer’s mother repaired the torn sofa. Highlights include wool short jackets, collar long coats and A-line skirt, all in square patchwork that take references from the sofa chair surface. Houndstooth pattern in cracked surface and furry texture has been used on sailor collar coats and wrapped long skirts, interpreting the texture of the ripped sofa. Also, tile pattern-inspired buttons have also been applied in the designs.
The designers not only got inspired by the elements of the home decoration but also ran through the old photo albums, digging up many interesting family stories. They want to build around classic pieces and transform them with a modern touch. The traditional flare pants are updated with a contemporary and rebellious touch, resembling their fathers’ 90s attire. However, home is a safe haven and a comfort zone. To resemble the atmosphere of “home”, neutral colours of navy, khaki and black are invigorated by brighter tones, such as lemon chiffon, sky blue, antique brass, and quill grey to create the cosiness.
