- ABOUT DESIGNERS
Kai Ting CHEN

Her SS19 collection is inspired by iconic film “City of Life and Death,” and the struggles faced by the army within it. The menswear collection deconstructs military uniforms with historical newspapers prints of the war in Nan-King 1937. The conceptual collection is a reminder of people who do not forget the cruelty of war and treasure of peace, a value that should be present in more of mankind.
