The collection is inspired by Shanghai between 1900 to 1920. The designs strike a balance between being sartorially interesting without overwhelming the wearer. The fabrics contain a certain ruggedness that never comes off as tough. Just like Shanghai in that period, characterised by an embrace of modern avant-garde, of a positive and collaborative east-west fusion.'
'Ziggy Chen suources textiles from various mills around the world to Shanghai where the creation of its distinctive yet cohesive garments occurs. Fabrics such as wool, hemp, and linen are augmented with leather and fine cotton to craft organic pieces that are embedded with an intangible energy' - Ziggy Chen
