LI-NING presented Spring Summer 2020 collection named Ping-Pong, on Saturday June 22nd, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week.
Presenting for the second time at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the Li-Ning Spring/Summer 2020 show kicked off with the powerful debut of the Li-Ning’s first collaboration with Stefano Pilati and his progressive, Berlin-based contemporary label, Random Identities. Lights cut out and an army of models dressed all in black descended upon the show space wearing Pilati’s reinterpretation of Li-Ning’s Aurora 2019.
For the SS20 season Li-Ning, the great icon of Chinese athletics, took inspiration in ping-pong—the timeless sport in which China holds a decades-long interest and passion, as well as a heritage of unmatched Olympic success delivering a collection of apparel, footwear, and accessories. The mens and women’s collection featured innovative pieces like deconstructed, zip -away Mackintosh coats trimmed in contrasting piping and affixed with patches. Layered paperweight anoraks in contrasting tones of khaki and yellow. – from Li-Ning
