There is a traveler in all of us, and Ziggy Chen speaks to that traveler. Ziggy focuses on clothing to be lived in while on the move. His designs, while hearkening back to his Shanghai roots, clearly express a more expansive world view.
There is a Taoist duality clearly present in the garments. They suit the nomad, whether urban or rural – whether western or eastern – whether in the busy market or the open desert. It is within this clash of cultures of all types that Chen’s collections find balance.
