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.
Models walked the labyrinth to an eclectic soundtrack of obscure Chinese tracks, ’90s hip hop, and abstract Jazz, revealing the collection to a front-row crowd that included world champion skiier Eileen Gu, Chinese performer Ayunga, singer Can Chengyu, and Lucas Jagger, as well as Mr. Li-Ning himself, who took in the show alongside his daughter Xiaoyan.
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.
2020 marks Li-Ning‘s 30 year anniversary. In its first three decades, the brand has been driven by the limitlessness of the human body, while being rooted in and celebrating Chinese pride. Both of these recurring themes are evident in the Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
