Ziggy Chen takes his inspiration from Shanghai : the city he lives in and particularly from the changes he sees evolving from the collision of extreme cultures : old and new , East and West , antique and modern and so many others.
This approach echoes the Chinese philosophy of Tao : the concept of taoist duality and interdependency. It is this philosophy that greatly fuels Ziggy’s creative vision and power.
Ziggy also draws much inspiration for recent collections from pictures of the people of Shanghai taken between 1900 to 1920. These pictures show a very different place and mix of different cultures and people : workmen , monks, herders, soldiers.
In the lines and carefree look of the garments lies the concept of traveling, wandering through remote lands and the inspiring power of vast empty places. A love of simplicity and fine craftsmanship .Style with ancient roots that have been covered by a century of turmoil and by decades of frenzied development.
Ziggy Chen uses fabrics such as wool, hemp, and linen augmented with leather and fine cotton to craft organic pieces that are embedded with an intangible energy.
The fabrics contain a certain ruggedness offset with a classic elegance. A mix of a modern sensibility with a timeless Eastern aesthetic.
