The Autumn/Winter 2020 collection was inspired by the puzzle game Tetris. With a mix of cubism and pixel art, the designer created the prints for the opulent velvet dress and skirt.
The prints were hand-drawn by designer, and composed of ‘tetrominoes’ and other motifs. The fabric was ordered and manufactured in France and Italy, and the use of organdie, silk, satin, and velvet for the empire and mermaid flared dress, serves to extol the female shape. The use of virgin wool for the oversize coat brings out stronger and higher quality, and the use of cotton is comfortable and easy to wear.
As usual, the designer’s creations were emphasised with details from the puzzle game. From inspired embroidery motifs to the Napoleonic era-inspired collars. All of the pieces, which are highlighted by the silver thread, beads, and sequins used, convey the handcraft spirit of Alianna Liu.
