For his Fall Winter collection 2018, Harrison Wong turns for inspiration to Mark Rothko the mid-20th Century abstract expressionist whose powerful paintings comprise blurred blocks of vibrant colours, blacks and greys.
Harrison Wong creates fields of gradient tones as prints and patterns to complement and magnify the lines of his fitted overcoats and oversized sweatshirts.
By adding a sportswear element to this modern classic style, along with his expert layering, Harrison Wong creates a stunning look with immediate visual appeal.
