Li brings experience of simple plastic figures research in the creation of garments, finding the resemblance between design features and functions of robotic toys. So he expressed 4 basic principles in creating his collection
:– Reconstructed form:
To achieve different sizes, shapes, features (APTX-4869 skinny trouser, APTX-4872 short long trousers etc.);
– Ability to transform:
Fully (LX-78-2 trucker jacket, LX-06-F hoodie tunic) or partially (MSM-01 shirt, WOTW-01,02 mobile suit, APTX-4871 trouser), single or group (WOTW-04 parka, WOTW-MRK knit);– Human simulation:
Uniforms, simulating human figures: the joints, the skull, the spine (WOTW-01,02 MOBILE SUIT, etc.);– Identity:
Inspired by heraldry and soldiers/technic signs since the WWII, to create a tech terrifying image using the abundance of symbols and identifiers.
