ZIGGY CHEN

'The collection is inspired by Shanghai between 1900 to 1920. The designs strike a balance between being sartorially interesting without overwhelming the wearer. The fabrics contain a certain ruggedness that never comes off as tough. Just like Shanghai in that period, characterised by an embrace of modern avant-garde, of a positive and collaborative east-west fusion.'

'Ziggy Chen sources textiles from various mills around the world to Shanghai where the creation of its distinctive yet cohesive garments occurs. Fabrics such as wool, hemp, and linen are augmented with leather and fine cotton to craft organic pieces that are embedded with an intangible energy'

Saw a bit of Ziggy when I was in China last year. Looks pretty cool and I appreciate the construction/design even though it's not my aesthetic.

Outside of China/HK boutiques I know Vertice carries it.

from LE PARADOX:

The history holds a certain deep power which sometimes man’s arts are able to convey.
Digging into the rich tradition of his Chinese roots, Ziggy Chen imbues precious antique stories into his highly personal design vision. Something quiet and mature characterizes his experimental aesthetic, which organically blends together Eastern and Weastern suggestions creating a worldly language. This transcultural vision takes shape through a fine and meticulos selection of unique textiles that let the decadent elegance of a Baroque-like velvet fabric coexist with the rough textures of heavy wools. For the upcoming Autumn / Winter 2014 season, Chen’s broody 17th century gentlements in the Romantic molds embrace the rigour of Chinese clothing cutting, yet finding a comfortable shelter in cocooning workers coats. The slightly dramatic layering is sobered by the pieces’ treated and aged textures which give to the garments a timeless look. Subtle asymmetries creates a certain movement in the oversized silhouettes, kept clean and tailored through sartorial details such as the stiff button stance. Like an unexpected divertissement, the striped silk lining adds an exotic touch to the formal appeal of the outerwear.
Soulful and captivating beauty released from the eclectic poetry of clashing cultural heritages.

a nice snipet from Obscura Magazine:

Ziggy Chen FW2014 Collection
A collision of East and West, old and new

For many, clothes are simply clothes -- pieces of fabric cut and sewn to cover the body. In the hands of the right designer, however, they become much more, encompassing ideas of place, history and culture. Based in Shanghai, Ziggy Chen is one of the bright lights in a burgeoning Chinese fashion scene and a designer who takes inspiration from his hometown, as well as the collision of East and West, old and new, and tradition and modernity. His understated, transcultural aesthetic is meticulously-researched, yet boldly-experimental, and features the use of unique textiles sourced from various mills in Shanghai and around the world.

For the upcoming Fall/Winter season, Chen continued his exploration of the fundamentals of menswear in the ongoing quest for his “own personal language.” This inward, contemplative journey led him back in time to the “glamorous dress” of 17th century Europe, the world of American workwear and the two-dimensional cuts of traditional Chinese clothing. Raw, yet also soft and elegant, the result was a collection that places strong emphasis on wearability, comfort and individuality, with fabrics cut, re-cut and treated to impart a “lived-in” quality. Long, loose and layered, yet impeccably tailored, each look exemplifies the kind of creative and cultural juxtapositions that make Chen one of the more compelling designers to watch. Take a look at the collection above and for more information, visit the designer’s website here.
