Exhibition showpiece

​展覽作品

The SS19 collection is inspired by a Chinese folk, Grain in Ear (Mang Zhong). The mango and pomegranate being applied in print design help to show a picture of “Mang Zhong”. The animals help to show the vitality in summer, in which the Lucky Cat is the designer’s childhood design. The combination of their own design with modern buildings and the patterns such as mango and pomegranates create a unique personal style.

這個系列靈感來自中國民間24節氣的「芒種」。設計師運用了芒果和石榴的圖案幫助展現芒種的畫面,加入動物的圖案以展現夏天生動活潑的一面,其中的招財貓是設計師兒時所設計的圖案,設計師將自己設計的圖案與現代的建築物及芒果和石榴等圖案合併,配搭出一個個人獨有的風格及獨特的畫面。
