With fabrics that echo the time-worn weathered patina of the bricks and stones of historic Shanghai’s architecture and urbanity, ZIGGY CHEN reconciles and recalibrates the colliding forces of – east and west, tradition and modernity, new and old, past and present… fusing them seamlessly into a poetic vision of clothing that is imbued with a unique transcultural sensibility. Meticulous exploration and experimentation ensure that each sartorially engineered design carefully considers full anatomical comfort, conforming to the nuances of different individual bodies. The understated, reserved aesthetic locks into all the forms and materialities a strong sense of lineage and heritage, imparting a particular timelessness that counterbalances the constant shifting and superficiality of contemporary society.
