Cen­tral Saint Martins grad­u­ates Ja­son Mui and Lai On-ying met while work­ing in the de­sign in­dus­try in Hong Kong. the brand they founded in Fe­bru­ary was born out of frus­tra­tion with the strug­gle be­tween Chi­nese tra­di­tion and mod­ern in­no­va­tion— they wanted to in­ter­pret Chi­nese cul­ture through the Western at­ti­tude they de­vel­oped in Lon­don. Ex­plor­ing their Chi­nese roots and the an­cient East­ern way of dress­ing, the pair have suc­ceeded in cre­at­ing a cloth­ing line that is in equal parts so­phis­ti­cated and sur­pris­ing. Stand­out pieces from the lat­est col­lec­tion—shot by Chi­nese pho­tog­ra­pher Ren Hang—are a Chi­nese silk vest reimag­ined to look al­most like a bul­let­proof vest, and vo­lu­mi­nous one-size-fits-all trousers with ad­justable waist­bands. these are bold and mod­ern clothes with a dis­tinctly Chi­nese style.
