Drawing inspiration from the past while envisioning the future, Xander Zhou’s “ritualistic futurism” takes center stage in this collection. The designer’s signature mechanical design language is evident in the slim suits adorned with techy plates, serving as both armor and sculptural elements. These futuristic touches are juxtaposed with classic menswear staples, such as sweeping capes and walking sticks, creating an alluring contrast between the old and the new.
