INXX Presents “INvincible” at Shanghai Fashion Week
On April 3, 2018, INXX unveiled its A/W 18 collection, "INvincible" at Shanghai Fashion Week.
The bold and varied designs represented the brand’s prevailing ethos of borrowing from and reinterpreting multiple genres. Touching on themes of retro sportswear, female power and other subjects, the clothes exuded vitality and soul. Whether they conveyed street cred or evoked the wild world of underground female wrestling, the imagery of the show was unified by a collective aura of sexual confidence and fearless individuality.
A/W 18 used graphics, embroidery and collage combined with sophisticated tailoring to convey its distinctive voice. INXX’s command of these varied elements in combination communicated a clear vision to its audience.
INXX is always looking for ways to challenge streetwear trends that risk becoming stale. While some of this is explicit, more subtle details played their part in shaping a collection that conveyed both creative abandon and nuanced savoir faire. This brand of disciplined chaos ran through the entire collection, rather than being reserved for a few outré looksMany of the show’s pieces were initially inspired by specific materials and color schemes. Combined with precise tailoring, INXX is able to see these ideas through to truly original silhouettes that leave a lasting impression.Yan Yubo and Naomi in INXX & Lisha Jiang”Lady’s Fight Club” Series
“INvincible” represents an artistic reaction to our generation’s stress overload. Young people today are contending with some of the highest costs of living in history in an environment of infinite information saturation.
The result is an unavoidable numbness to the flood of pressure and stimulation, making the qualities of determination and persistence more crucial than ever. Rather than passive acceptance, “INvincible” encourages awareness and resistance.
INXX aims to stoke youthful passions and provide a means for people to express themselves in ways that are meaningful to them. More than simply following trends or seeking to shock, the brand’s surreal aesthetics reflect the state of the world we live in, while promoting the empowerment of women and the opportunity for young people to pursue their ambitions.
The sold-out runway show attracted a great number of influencers in China, including crossover electronic musician Jeno Liu, popular icon Wang Qing, singer Luo Zheng, fashion stylist Chen Xingru and supermodel Liu Xinjie. Representatives from 1626News, Youku Fashion, Hypebeast, Eyee, Nowre, ELLE, Ellemen, SoCooL, Popbee, Kiks and Modern were in attendance.
Fight Move Club
Following the show, INXX creative talent and fashion blogger Chen Xingru presented the mobile project Fight Move Club, inspired by Gaspar Noe’s film Enter the Void.
Making use of an RV whose interior had been transformed into a psychedelic art installation, INXX created an experience that transported visitors to a dream space of varied textures and shifting neon light.
Fight Move Club intentionally blurred the lines between fashion and art, and synced up with “INvincible’s” themes of feminine power, creative ambition and erotic energy. Its embrace of multiple themes and genres conveyed a liberating endorsement of forward-looking multiculturalism.
