Shangguan Zhe presented his Spring Summer 2018 collection for SANKUANZ during the recently wrapped up Paris Fashion Week. Confronting antiquity and modernity, the collection is an homage to the late American artist Cy Twombly.
The line explores various facets of the artist’s universe, from bespoke silica gel-based fabrics dipped in signature Twombly pastels to the references to classical Mediterranean culture that often fed the themes of the artist’s expressive research. The worn-out nature of dark over-dyed cotton and natural linens contrasts with the synthetic aspect of acid pastels and bright colours, with layered fabrics and motifs in total looks conferring an intense visual impact
