Steven Tai once again designs against the grain and celebrates the nerdy girl who’s laughing at the rest of us trying to keep up with it all and running on exhaustion. His AW16 collection at this year’s London Fashion Week embraces the inspiration of “an old soul”. The Steven Tai girl relishes the idea of curling up with a book or staying up with a good movie instead of heading out to the weekend party.
Though she embraces her inner nerd, this girl has edge. In Steven’s designs, the subtle touches of raw/frayed edges, patchwork and vests, add that extra layer to the collection to freshen it up for the coming season.
Take a second look at the collection because inside everyone of us is a stylish nerd just waiting to come out and be seen.
