Sandy Liang Spring Summer Collection
New York Fashion Week 2021
For Sandy Liang‘s Spring Summer 2021 collection, she found inspiration through a mixture of current interests and her love for nostalgia as always. The collection consists of 25 looks in total and introduces many new and updated silhouettes, with a heavy emphasis on ballet pink silks, printed silks, dark green fleeces and cotton ginghams.
The collection will debut via a lookbook and film on the Sandy Liang website, IG TV and CFDA Runway360 platform.
This season, Sandy has called upon Brooklyn-based artist Sara Rabin to design the “Margot print” which is a unique pattern that will be showcased throughout the collection. The Margot character is a dreamy collaboration between the artist and designer, combining Sandy’s love for Margot Tenenbaum, Ponyo, and paws. Highlights of Sara’s work include designing original artwork for Supreme, Dimes and Barney’
The film that showcases the collection was produced by Mitch Ryan – highlights of his work include projects for Glossier, Helmut Lang and jjjjound. The inspiration behind the film references some of Sandy’s favorite Juergen Teller go-see photos, with the primary focus being on the clothes and less about the noise of fashion week. The video is straightforward, very New York, a little bit off, and includes a sound bite from Sakura, a heavy inspiration for Sandy this season.
Upon finding inspiration for this collection Sandy said the following:The difference with this collection, and hopefully all collections moving forward, is that I felt like I had time to breathe, think and draw freely, versus feeling like I have to rush to start the following 2 seasons at the same time. It just wasn’t a feasible and realistic pace of work, especially for a team of 4.
This is a special time for Sandy, as she is simultaneously working on launching a new product category ahead of opening a flagship store in November 2020 (tentatively).
