Designer: Derek Chan
For his latest collection, Chan continues a similar narrative to his brand. He's showcasing his take on a 1950s prep school, giving a romantic twist to a prim and proper uniform. Expect to see bodysuits, breeches and tailored jackets with nostalgic schoolboy detailing.
KA WA KEY
Designer: Key Chow
The tagline for his latest collection is, “a romantic story about a Chinese twink (a lean, boyish, effeminate gay man), who tries to Americanise himself to seduce Western guys”. It’s been a while since a designer has offered such a fresh outlook on menswear as Chow – filled with fairytale fantasy and using complex knit and lace fabrics to enhance the “twink”-like aesthetic he hopes to achieve. Chow is redefining masculinity and the result is a strikingly romantic collection.
Designer: Kenson Tam
His latest collection is a continuation of his preppy, boyish narrative. You can expect dandy prints, a generous use of colour and mix of wool and knit textures. Tam's designs are for men who are’t afraid to show their inner child to the world.
Designer: Aries Sin
Her latest AW17 collection – ”Concrete Jungle.” Here, Sin takes a romantic throwback to the 1950s, where men were fully layered in tailored suits with a matching vest, shirt and textured overcoat. To cope with the busy life and unrelenting concrete jungle of Hong Kong, MODEMENT presents a strong silhouette with stark and serious colours.
Designer: Sherman Kwan
Her take on womenswear is all about unconventional cuts and strong, mascu-feminine looks meant for a badass femme fatale. She’s all about using black, black and more black in her clothing, oscillating between biker chic and utilitarian casual wear. For her upcoming collection, we can expect more dark and stark pieces with sharp cuts and a sleek silhouette.
Designer: Winnie Chen
her latest collection, “Trinity”, focuses on three key philosophies that form her style foundation: geometry, space and body. Chen is a master in tailoring, which can be seen in her bold, architectural designs that offer a full-rounded, asymmetrical silhouette. Every angle of her outfit offers a new outlook to her conceptual designs.
Designer: Yeung Chin
Breaking the Rules
Yeung's designs are highlighted by a mixture of textures and unconventional choice of fabrics and use of trim. The geometric and sculptural elements to his designs are in full force in his latest collection. We can expect to see challenging proportions, asymmetrical silhouettes and bold, provocative outerwear.
