Today during the last day of New York Fashion Week (NYFW), oqLiq, a Taiwan menswear brand, oqLiq, presented a virtual and completely digitized show at NYFW: The Shows to premier their Fall/ Winter 2021 collection. The ”Natural Blessing” Collection, a continuation of their Spring/Summer collection, featured men’s pieces that are also gender neutral focused on a color palette inspired by nature with black, deep moss green, olive, orange and navy hues dominating. The video transports guests to another world utilizing realistic 3D CAD animation allowing viewers to peep into the future.
The fashion show then commences on what appears to be an infinity sign-shaped spaceship that would act as the brand’s metal gravity-defying catwalk.
The creative team focused on technical design and new-tech materials with utilitarian features such as zippered pockets that are stylish yet functional to face the Pandemic’s “new normal.”
An outerwear piece with architectural zippered pockets will keep a mask or hand sanitizer easily accessible but can easily transition to function for a passport for your next trip to Mars. oqLiq showcased a wearable collection with versatile pieces that can be worn in a variety of settings and great attention to details like inclusion of their signature curved zippers on trench coats, deep pockets, and hidden buttons.
Pieces from this “Natural Blessing” collection were designed to sustain various weather scenarios from a cool breeze to a rain shower. Nature inspired hues dominated the collection: olive, navy, khaki, taupe and black, with layered pieces a few shades both darker and lighter and a number of pops of vibrant citrus orange.
Fabrics and textiles used throughout the collection will be polartec, nylon, poly and cotton although for our viewing pleasure they are 100% pixel today.
Though traditionally menswear, oqLiq wanted to expand on their successful debut a couple of seasons ago at NYFW: The Shows with a unisex approach, sticking true to gender neutrality in the fashion industry.
