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.
