Laurence & Chico SS2020 Runway InspirationLaurence & Chico’s was inspired by New York City; their Spring/Summer 2020 collection was a love letter to the Big Apple, exemplified by the Empire State Building and 917 motifs used in the pieces.
Laurence & Chico is a Canadian womenswear brand established in 2015 by Laurence Li and Chico Want. The Brand’s inspiration comes from Laurence’s personalized illustrations depicting their daily lives. The illustrations show only Laurence and Chico drawn as two human characters, whereas friends and family are all characterized into animals, plants, fruits or vegetable figures. Laurence’s illustrations evoke a unique sense of humor with vivid colors inspiring Chico to use elements from such to create imaginative, bold yet delicate prints and silhouettes for their collections.
