Designer Yang Juan’s I Love Pretty S/S 2020 Collection swept down the runway Friday, and each look was more extravagant than the last. Tulle frills mixed with leather harnesses and hard-cut blazers embellished with glittering jewels make some of I Love Pretty’s stand out pieces.

Told through three “vignettes,” each section of the show held a different story. Beginning with an eerie cover of Nirvana’s “All Apologies”, the models strutted wearing silky wide-leg trousers and sporting various baby pink pieces. Later looks included a sheer pale blue long-sleeve gown with glittering stones as well as a floor-length crystal-embellished trench coat.

Distinct accessories included leather arm and thigh bands and micro glittering sunglasses. Numerous models carried a syringe-shaped clutch attached to a chain, contributing to the theme of other pieces imprinted with pills or heart monitor activity. Natural makeup was taken to the next level with Swarovski crystals placed under models’ eyes and on their bodies.

The show ended with a bang as a purple-haired model came down the runway wearing an outfit that encapsulated the entire show: a clear plastic top paired with a high-low tulle skirt and a bra that looked more like a belt. Lovely yet risqué.
