The attention to detail as well as the sources of inspiration, in Ziggy Chen’s collections, have a preponderant value; colors, fabrics, workmanship, nothing is sent to chance.
For Collagemory, SS 21 collection, the main inspiration comes from the artist Hannah Hoch, female exponent of the Dada movement, one of the first to use collage as an expressive form. Hoch made his self-portrait in a collage form, starting from the photos that portrayed the highlights of her life. So Ziggy Chen, a great travel enthusiast, always immortalized by the camera, made a collage of that memories that became fabric. Images taken during a stay in India juxtaposed have created an unusual and fascinating pattern that comes to life in the collection’s garments.
Together with the Hoch, the paintings of the Song dynasty, with their colors and nuances, are essential elements and traits d’ union between the various Ziggy Chen collections. Over time, the meticulous study of these paintings has allowed the designer to refine more and more the exclusive color palette of his collections. Art but also the small beauties of everyday life are all input, reworked by the designer’s brilliant creativity and attention, they contribute to the creation of the collection. Poetic and timeless pieces that lead the wearer to bring beauty and art with him every day.
