LFW SS18 : Ryan Lo's Dark Fantasy

By Cara Livingstone

Ryan Lo has always been good at wrapping up his work in technicolor maximalism. So this collection would be a departure from that aesthetics. But the overwhelming sense of intricacy is complemented through the means of black and white and some muted pink colors. This gives the collection verve and clarity. There is no question about Ryan's ability to construct form but this collection further enhances his reputation as a master at his craft as he does to black and white what he has done to red and yellow. It is a collection that would need a bit of time to settle into the minds of the consumer and editors but when it does the genius would come through in spades.
