The Wandering Wit is Designed for the Seasoned Nomad
A true tour de force of craft, Gabriel Ting’s label The Wandering Wit continues to present utility in a form much more practical than that of Neo-Tokyo aesthetics or post-nuclear futurism. Rather than sport Gore-Tex uppers and overwhelming amounts of buckles, his silhouettes are often of more timeless presentation with embellishments leaning towards a sort of floral-covered reality.
Dropping small, curated selections per each season, his latest two part collection is in perfect alignment with the warmer weather. Short sleeve shirting, in a variety of fabrics and cuts, stretch the limits of their template with oversized pockets often crossing their lower halves in contrasting cotton mesh or even more feminine lace. More visually bulky alternatives are ripe with compartments across their entire front body, adding more solid attachments to bases of all-over print. Backs are sometimes pleated in modification of fit while accompanying pieces arrive in patchwork-esque color blocking or completely see-through uppers. Outerwear, though much smaller in range, are of palettes vibrant in deep reds or mustard yellows, running with the chore coat and adding contrast stitch as well as maximal button closures. Hats, a sort of bread and butter for the Toronto designer, are in the highest breadth, shining somewhat simple caps and buckets through a warped Alice in Wonderland stylized lens.
