Following his captivating showcase last season, Chinese designer Wan Hung presented a fitness inspired collection for his SS18 presentation at London Fashion Week Men’s on Monday 12th June. Hung’s SS18 offering was a celebration of masculinity, focusing on concepts of modernity and acting as a digital exploration of today’s gym culture. The collection featured a range of prints within the contemporary athleisure garments, inspired by Michelangelo’s David, again to reiterate the ideals of masculinity and depict the ideal body.

It appeared Hung’s models did exactly that, whilst often topless to showcase their incredibly toned bodies that were occasionally covered with silver foil-like jackets and matching shorts. Other models wandered around draped in reworked versions of traditional tailoring, with the most notable ensemble being a full grey suit covered in jewel encrusted chains tied with Chinese knots. Such an addition appeared to present itself throughout the collection, often featured as necklaces and with chic coloured accents. Hung’s SS18 collection drew inspiration from classic suiting and paired such inspiration with aspects of boxing attire, frequently sporting crinkled gym shorts all emblazoned with the Wan Hung logo on the waistband.

Additional pieces within the collection included silky open button shirts and streamlined red leggings, paired with Hung labelled caps and chunky monochrome shoes, altogether presenting an incredibly suave take on conventional suits and sportswear.
