HIGHTLI design at NYFW
Designer Tong Li for China based brand HIGHTLI was inspired by the video game ‘The Legend of Zelda’ in creating her FW19 collection ‘Melody’. The designs work as a ‘composed song’ that coordinate relevant yet differentiated elements in an unconventional manner. A caramel colored silk shirt with flared cuffs, and high-waisted pants that cinched in the waist gave a structured feminine look. Fabrics in herringbone, checks, and dogtooth added texture, and a cozy bold red fur coat created volume with oversized sleeves. A deep burgundy cage-like structured button-up cape worn over a silver silk two-piece with bird-cage motif formed a key look.
