Returning for Spring/Summer 2020, designer Yang Li has crafted a collection centered around his history. Drawing from the offerings he has crafted from 2012-2018, the latest seasonal range revives iconic and popular items from his label’s archive.

Reimagined to make one cohesive collection, the items serve as a definitive look at the first chapter of Yang Li. Dubbed “Greatest Hits (Side A),” the collection features a mainly monochromatic color palette dominated by contemporary takes on traditional menswear. Tinges of sub-cultural inspiration shine through in the form of detailing that accentuates the designer’s ties to rave, punk and other music scenes. Standouts include a badge covered parka, printed knit sweaters, wide leg trousers and an array of chunky heel boots and loafers.

Additionally, Yang Li has tapped a selection of past collaborators and new artists to imprint their ideas onto some of the iconic and popular designs. Some artists that have worked on the collection include Genesis P-Orridge, Godflesh, Michael Gira, Psychic TV, Ramleh, Swans, Torturing Nurse, Tropic of Cancer, Yung Lean and 左小祖咒 Zuoxiao Zuzhou. Each artist will also be contributing a track for a compilation project which will serve as an accompanying limited edition LP.

Check out the lookbook for Yang Li’s SS20 “Greatest Hits (Side A)” collection above and look out for the release of the YANG LI GREATEST HITS compilation album.

In case you missed it, FACETASM’s SS20 “together” collection is an expression of unfinished completion.
