The Shanghai Tang Autumn/Winter 2014 collection is an update on Chinese classics with a modern mood, with sharp constructions and exquisite fabric textures. There are four striking themes – Raw Sartorial, Sport Luxe, Demure Peacock, and Striking Monochrome – to this exciting collection. The smart casual look is updated with design details such as protective quilting on blouson and liberty prints on cotton jersey pants. The brand’s sportswear focuses on relaxed tailoring and unstructured silhouettes. Combination of teal blue and blue-green peacock tone is a key colour this season, paired with micro motif or abstract print for interesting texture. When it comes to formalwear, the black and white designs get a touch of luxury with premium materials of soft leather. The tuxedo shirt is reinvented with contrast yoke. Black and burgundy printed velvet jackets create a sharp and sophisticated appearance. The polished surface sharpens the luxe look with fitted cuts.
