Discover DIDU Spring Summer 2021 Collection, that was inspired by Jonathan Glazer’s 2013 movie Under the Skin, presented in historic Paramount Hall in Shanghai. The collection explores relationship between the body and the garment, and the connection between the power and human beauty.
When extraterrestrial beings imitate humans, they begin with clothing and makeup first. Meaning that to an extraterrestrial being, clothing is our first layer and to them, our skin. – Di Du on Under The Skin movie and her inspiration for collection.
Many people think that as a young brand, we should go to clubs or somewhere more youthful for our show, but we’re not. I hope everyone can understand that as an emerging brand, the way to create something new can also be through exploring ourselves. It is also important to recognize that DIDU, as a young designer brand also has a cultural background. This cultural heritage should not be forgotten nor ignored. – Di Du
“The collection is set in cooling nuances asphalt, iced grey, white and radioactive green, juxtaposed with abstract graphics, reflective piping details and contrast stitching. Tailoring and the construction of a feminine bodice are prevalent throughout the collection, matched with exposed skin and cut-outs unveiling the decolletage, belly button and shoulders. In a collection that is sleek, body-hugging and feminine, sudden jabs of masculinity confront the feminine touch – evoking thoughts surrounding what it means to be feminine and powerful. Art deco references and futurism pushes the collection forward into a visual expression that is both soft and hard.” – From DIDU
