A former student of Raf Simons, Li has come a long way since his early days, and his designs reflect a revolution of sorts—although a few elements have remained a constant. His preoccupation with maxi silhouettes, for one, and his use of printed messages in unexpected places, which lends his garments a certain punk aesthetic. Mixed with the floral prints and raw hems, the entire collection is reminiscent of 90s romantic grunge. But make no mistake about it, this is nothing like anything we’ve seen within the past few seasons of 90s-obsessed ready-to-wear. And I, for one, couldn’t be happier about it.
