LFW – XANDER ZHOU “I’m Carrying A Secret Weapon” Autumn/Winter 2017

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Xander Zhou studied fashion design in the Netherlands before establishing Xander Zhou Studio in Beijing, He was the first menswear fashion designer from China that showed at London Fashion Week Men’s. He is inspired by youth subcultures and merges elegance with streetwise attitude.

We are young, but we are no longer children. We have grown up. We have come to understand ourselves. First by looking at others, because it was easier than looking at ourselves. That journey provided us with a frame of reference. it taught us about our identity in relation to others. It taught us about our position in the world. And the position of Asia in the world. We are the new generation.”
