Despite the special situation, William Fan can draw positives from last year. His focus was more on the immediate. More than in previous years, he felt less distracted and more aware of the environment and people surrounding him, of what was happening on the ground. This inspired his new collection, “Neighbourhood.” “There was no traveling and so the given, one’s own place, became my focus,” he said. “The collection is about going out again and reaching out to each other, approaching people and getting to know them. After a long time of being at home, I felt the joy of having encounters with my fellow human beings again. This was also evident in the way people felt like dressing up again for everyday life and putting on festive clothes.”
This season Fan’s signature blue is now joined by black—these more somber looks are broken with bright accessories and represent the hard, sometimes untouchable core of a stranger that can be broken by a sparkle. Chunky canvas and last season’s classic beige continue, joined by a new psychedelic ’70s print in vintage yellow-orange and floral brocades with hand-embroidered crystals. “Sustainability for me starts with the design,” says Fan. “I always perpetuate designs, I want each of my pieces to be long-lasting. Then in new seasons, silhouettes, colors and fabrics evolve.” For Fan, the theme of neighborhood was extended into the show’s casting: this season, the barista from his favorite coffee shop and people he met outside a pharmacy walked the runway, which was edged in bright blue tulle.
