So Extra: ANNAKIKI Fall/Winter 2017 MFW

Runway, Women, Collections, Runway

Too much is never enough with ANNAKIKI. Unlike the elegant tailoring that you’d expect at Milan Fashion Week, designer Anna Yang delivered a spunky runway show and set a mood that was positively electric. Vibrant colors like tangerine and bubblegum pink shared center stage with silver metallics, glossy PVC and furry textures. Excusing the garish name, the leg-of-mutton sleeves were quite cute and seem to be trending in the sphere of quirky womenswear. Loosely puffed at the shoulders, they added a soft femininity to pieces that were more unorthodox (e.g. the silver overalls or vinyl frock in ruby red) and provided a sharp contrast to the square, padded shoulders in several of the coats. Though the closing look with the elongated bomber jacket felt unexpectedly out of place, the ANNAKIKI Fall/Winter 2017 collection was holistically an entertaining and enjoyable one. Always warping typical femininity into off-kilter forms, Yang’s work promotes a bold and audacious sense of individuality.
