INHERIT AND PRESENT

A reinterpretation of traditional Chinese ink landscape painting, the designer aims to “inherit and present” his culture, calling on traditions from the past and re-presenting them in a contemporary setting. The collection uses needle stamped wool felt and beaded fabric to evoke the colour transition in traditional water-based landscape painting. Accessories, including shoes and jewellery, complement the garments.
