Dear Shaded Viewers,

For SS22 season, Chinese designer Sean Suen takes a closer look at the “Wonderful fleeting moments” in life with a collection expressing intimate and irradiant love between people.

Titled “Ephemeral”, the designer takes on the challenge to form emotional connections between clothes and people, finding his inspiration in the short fleeting moments of romance after a full year of social distancing rules.

“We have been lucky enough to live in the same lasting day, but unfortunately I am at dusk, while you are at dawn. Between us, there is an eternal distance that the night cannot cross. However, there will always be a moment, as if that night, as if I were in your dream, and you in mine.”

Utilising knit, wool and silk, this season underlines comfort and lightness with a palette of purple, green, blue and yellow shades. Coats are muffled in looser fits, dresses are draped on white shirts as second skin, knit tops are intertwined with buttoned blouses, hand-written prints decorate the men’s shirts… compared to the past seasons, the designer steps out of his comfort zone of constructed utilitarian wear, blending his touch with sensuality.
