Ever since the brand’s earliest days in 2011, the nerd has been Steven Tai’s muse. The S/S17 collection celebrates the bookworm once again but compared to his debut collection, the designs are more refined, more wearable, yet equally complex. The papery texture given by panels of fabric layered one upon the other like pages of a book, is reissued in lighter organza, patiently hand-cut on bias, then folded with zig-zag stitching across all hems. The collection is meticulous, cerebral, and oddly poetic.
