My project is about realising a men collection that mix clothes, workwear details and classics (functionality and rigidity) with clothes coming from indigenous and African tribes for example tunics and skirts (lightness and freedom).
When I look at a clothe, what interests me are the details, kind of when they have defects or are broken, and because of that, they are repaired with the purpose to be reusable; so quick repairs, imperfect ones; it's done only the essential and only by unpredictability.
My clothes live of unpredictability, I start from a simple base, and the develop and transform during the realization without knowing how it'll at the end, and sometimes is by playing with those mistakes that we create something new, and by that make a virtue of necessity.
Hi, my name is Sun Yueh Wen and I come from Milan, Italy; I got into fashion when I started understanding what was the meaning of wearing a specific clothe compared to another.
This passion started with my love for music and musicians during the highschool period, indeed to develop a proper spirituality and to be recognised in a community it's really important not only to adequate your interior side but also your esthetical side.
Since then, I started following runaways, and I started analyzing the concepts of collections, the history of each designer and which where their principal source of inspiration.
My project is about realising a men collection that mix workwear and classics clothes and his details with clothes coming from indigenous and African tribes for example tunics and skirts.
My inspiration developed by watching movies and documentaries of Werner Herzog, more specifically Aguirre, The Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo; and also by watching photography books of Inrving Penn and August Sanders.
