DESIGNER NAME: Xander Zhou (aka 周翔宇)
BACKGROUND: Xander studied industrial design in China and fashion design in the Netherlands. He established his label in 2007 and is based in Beijing.
SIGNATURES: “Deconstructionism, playing with form and function, using unconventional materials, taking everyday elements out of context… It’s elegance but not slick.”
THE COLLECTION: “The name of the collection is “Homies”, which reflects street culture, a boys-will-be-boys mentality, and lays bare the kind of vanity found in streetwise guys who do not readily admit that they actually do care about the way they dress.”
