“Homecoming” is a reflection of Li’s experience being back home in Auckland, New Zealand. The FW21 collection echoes Li’s conceptualisation of fashion during her teenage years when she attended high school in New Zealand: dreamy, surreal, dramatic, and free.
Drawing references from ‘80s prom and high school nostalgia, Li incorporated signature silhouettes for fall, including the oversized neck bow, work jumpsuits, and slouchy shoulders. Dramatic colors, glitter and embellishment are the prominent themes across the collection.
Limited edition earrings and headbands created in collaboration with Fruta are worn by the models throughout the lookbook.
Fruta headbands and earrings are available at claudia-li.com.
