Kwaidan Editions Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Léa Dickely and Hung La of Kwaidan Editions remember rave culture all too well! In fact, their Fall 2019 line touched on that very concept. Yet what was so striking about their new collection was that, while it ventured into that 90s nightclub territory, their clothes remained sleek, sophisticated, and oh so modern! And because of this, we thought it was a hugely fascinating and amazing outing!

Remember the good old days of rave culture? Cropped tops, leather jackets, skin-tight slips, and flared-out jeans? It wasn’t the most sophisticated style to sport—which was never the point in the first place—but it was fun, fresh, and cool! The look is so nuanced, it’s almost hard to think it’d still look desirable today, right? Wrong! Léa Dickely and Hung La achieved refining the looks for a more modern audience, or basically the grown-up versions of those party animals dancing in the underground raves. In their Fall 2019 collection for Kwaidan Editions, they took all the signature tropes of rave culture style and made them more sophisticated and polished to perfection! Those flared-out bottoms? Now they’re floor-length and made in navy wool and paired with a nice paisley yellow drawstring coat. The animal prints? Cut into sleek streamlined coats and suits in shimmering leather. And of course, we can’t forget the tank top, which here becomes a sky blue creation with stark yellow piping for that multi-dimensional glow. Though it would have been difficult to imagine then, the rave look of the past is now one of the most elegant styles for the coming season!
