Haoran Li's latest collection is titled 'Dyes of Shadow' and is a study of natural textures and fabric draping techniques. The womenswear designer is based in China and is best known for becoming a finalist in the Kering x Parsons Empowering Imagination design contest.

Haoran Li's striking range is presented in a topographic advertorial that pairs bold garments with textural imagery. The collage-inspired lookbook layers draped clothing staples atop blank backdrops that are accented with images of natural textures.

These natural textures include stone and water prints that are carried throughout the collection. Its standouts include draped outerwear pieces, layered dresses and oversized clutches -- bags that are constructed out of uneven and deconstructed fabric swatches.
