The C+Plus Series Spring/Summer 2022 collection draws inspiration from Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem, Presentiment, particularly with the following quote: “I feel the coming wind, and am disturbed as the sea.” Taking on the theme of “presentiment”, or, a foreboding feeling about the future, the designer summarizes the span of our recent reality throughout his collection, juxtaposing criticism and tolerance with a balance of contrasting design elements – futuristic and structural silhouettes that can also be seen as fragile with flow.
He explores the instinctual nature of “presentiment” when humans are alert to coming change and manage to live with it to maintain a sense of introspection on life. He believes that being in the current time and space where things are constantly changing and turbulent, keeping a premonition, and using it to test the direction of the extension of daily life is a way to live in harmony with a turbulent situation.
Liu believes that fashion has its “presentiment” as well. For spring/summer 2022, under the background of symbiosis dependence, through intuitive prediction, clothes will be extended in the same language at different levels. He draws a palette from shades of the moon, varying from grey and black to purple and yellow depending on the Earth’s atmosphere. Silhouettes balance gravity and strength, proposing new takes on sportswear and eveningwear with Liu’s signature approach to modernist femininity. Keys for SS22 include subversive takes on blazers, fluid lines, asymmetry, and voluminous dresses that aim to further empower confident customers.
C+plus SERIES uses the intuition of life to show the exploration, reconstruction, and thinking of balanced life in the living space, with a similar curious approach to design. Experimentation with a dose of fantasy helps to elevate sleek, strong silhouettes for the new millennial woman.
Multiple ruffles and an intriguing mix & match of textures and volumes for versatile styling
A twisted front and a mockneck make this figure-elongating layered silhouette even more interesting.
A jumpsuit inspired by the 70s but also bringing on some prairie-chic vibes is definitely eye-catching.
Beautiful quilting on a roomy leather blazer silhouette is the coolest layer you can have in transitional weather.
It’s all about the prints, isn’t it?
