Interweaving traditional life, culture, and creative technology:
Hong Kong Art and Culture
Last year the pre-event of JUXTAPOSED, "Time-Honoured Brands, New Fashion", connected local designers with long-established brands in different fields. This collaboration broke the sense that fashion is always far removed from the community’s lives and brought the innovative spirit of Hong Kong fashion design to the community.
This year, the HKFDA scoured the city and selected ten classic Hong Kong cultural traditions. Incorporating the industry's cutting-edge production technology into these traditions, a series of commemorative T-shirts are created by ten local fashion designers. Pairing life and culture with fashion design, traditional craftsmanship, and innovative technology, they have created ten "Hong Kong Art and Culture" JUXTAPOSED limited tees. The goal is to share with the visitors of the exhibition Hong Kong's most beautiful traditions, the latest technology, and art, with fashion as the medium.
Traditional Street Market
Henry Lau 劉志華
To the designer, the traditional street market speaks of the richness and harmony between east and west. And what is more iconic than Hong Kong's red plastic market lampshade? Capturing this in a fabric creates magic. With the red lampshade as a motif on the top portion, the designer is guided by the works of modernist painter Fernand Leger for the bottom half. By combining humanity and colour, he creates a highly wearable T-shirt.
傳統街市給設計師的印象是有豐富人情味，有中西合璧的招牌，而更加獨特的就是那一個紅色膠燈罩，把它放衣服上面就形成魔力，所以我用它做成衣服上面的主題，而衣服下面圖案側以 post modernism 的 fernard leger 畫家的畫作靈感，把人性化與色彩結合，而形成可穿性高的 T shirt 。
