8ON8 presented by GQ China London Fashion Week Men's AW20
Sunday 5th January at 11am
Backstage at London Fashion Week Men’s with TONI&GUY Artistic Director Daniele de Angelis, where he created the looks for the Autumn/Winter 20 by 8on8 presented by GQ China, using our award-winning professional haircare range label.m
What’s the inspiration behind the hair?
International Artistic Director Daniele de Angelis used the influence of ‘millennials dressed up for a party’ as overall the hair was slighter longer in length and where each model was given an interpretation of drier texture aligned with natural lift at the roots.
What’s the inspiration behind the collection?
GQ proudly supports new generation designer 8ON8, as part of its eighth year launching GQ PRESENTS - a project to highlight emerging Chinese designers. Li Gong created the brand in 2017 and the creative insight for AW20 was a process intertwined with the thinking of youth culture and self-interpretation of the post-90’s generation. The collection showcases the influence of a high-end party for ageing celebrities, in a luxury private club hosted in a virtual community by 8ON8. Fabrics such as Tweed – a British hand-made fabric are changed in silhouette and colour where 8ON8’s signature suit featured more exaggerated accessories.
