Discover UMA WANG Fall Winter 2022.23 Womenswear Collection that was inspired by the Gauchos, the Pampas, the South American Botany, and a folklore dance the Malabo, presented on March 3rd, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. The Nomadic Riders collection features extraordinary craftsmanship. The looks made from different varieties of hand-dyed alpaca eco fur explore the spirit that is ancient and silent, strong and unruly. The aesthetics of the entire collection unfold from the imagery of Jorge Luis Borges’ extract “The Horse“.

FALL WINTER 2022.23 COLLECTIONS

Jacquard, printed and hand-dyed degradè fabrics; plaid combined with bright velvets; herringbone fabric alongside the eco fur, and eco fur embroidered with jacquard panels; natural and simulated ambivalence, front and back’s dubiety, color shades irresolutions… All these uncertainties interweave into an epic plot aria. And uncertainty builds its certainty into the oversized cut, the menswear style, and the innate elegance of a timeless wardrobe. In the end, an ode to the Gauchos poetry with earflaps wide-brimmed hats that looks burnt by the sun.” – from Uma Wang

The great plains await since the beginning.
Beyond the last peach trees, close to the waters, a white horse, with sleepy eyes, seems to be filling the morning.
The arching neck, like a Persian blade, and the mane, and the swirling tail.
The horse is elegant and firm and made up of long curves.
I remember a quaint verse by Chaucer: ‘a very horsely horse’.
Nothing else, except the noon.
The horse is here and now, but there is something different about it because it is also a horse in a dream by Alexander of Macedon. – Jorge Luis Borges
