Vincent LI | Melbourne
Launching in 2014, Melbourne based menswear label VINCENT LI presents the unique pairing of the designer's roots in Chinese culture with tenets of western fashion. With the ethos of beauty in imperfection, the designer's personality is infused into every piece he creates, capturing the emotions and heart of the wearer.
After studying Fashion in both Hong Kong & Melbourne and interning with the likes of J.W.ANDERSON, Vincent started his own label in 2014. The label is the result of the pairing of the designer's roots in Chinese culture with tenets of western fashion.
"VINCENT LI clothes combine the soft almost feminine aspects the western eye detects in orientalism with the more masculine form of western men's clothing. It's something different; it might bring a hint of trepidation to the wearer but at the same time is uplifting because it also brings the wearer into a new aesthetic. Beauty exists because perfection does not"."
The designer's personality is infused into every piece he creates. Vincent's passion and love for fashion runs deeper than creating something new and amazing to wear. The Designer seeks to capture the emotions and heart of the wearer.
"It's not the aesthetics but the whole; you put the clothes on and then begin the journey into intellectual artisanship which each garment aims to instil."
The designer has gone on to showcase collections both locally and internationally, including MENSKE exhibition in Melbourne, MSFW 2015, London Men's Fashion week 2015, Shanghai Fashion week 2015 and the Dress Collective Runway during VAMFF 2016. Vincent has also collaborated with the New Palm Court Orchestra to present an celebration of the poetic in Fashion and Music. Earlier this year VINCENT LI was also hand-picked by Not Just A Label among 50 innovative fashion talents from around the world to take part in Origin Passion and Beliefs, Milan, Italy.
The label is based in Melbourne, designed locally and made in Australia.
