Brand to Watch: RENLI SU

Posted in Style
by adakallgren on 24 March, 2017

Which is your one unmatched wardrobe favourite? Judging from ours, we’d guess it’s probably a piece that you’ve formed a special bond with over time—that’s developed meaning through the memories you associate it with. The concept of clothes speaking to its owner through stories is one that permeates the work of London-based designer Renli Su. Soaking in wearer’s personality, her garments are made to fit and be shaped around an individual, rather than a trend.
With neutral palettes and loose, simple silhouettes, Su’s designs work almost like a blank canvas, stripped off a major narrative, which is left to be weaved in by the wearer. To further boost the garment-owner bond, the designer puts a great emphasis on comfort and wearability. Not to mention the choice of luxurious and rare sustainable materials such as the Tibetan yak wool and Chinese silk woven into the fabrics by skilful Asian craftsmen.
For SS17, Su’s designs went down a dreamy path, reconnecting with her larger theme of time and memory through mythological stories, which, according to Su, has a common thread of inspiration and hope when times are tough. We feel her—here’s to rewriting the story!
