Location: Paris, France
Season: Spring/Summer 2018
Key Pieces: We were big into Sankuanz’s splattered red pieces, and the brand managed to one-up Demna Gvasalia with their ridiculously big tote bags.
Editor’s Notes: Sankuanz is one of the many Chinese labels showing in Europe, and it’s also one of the most promising. For SS18, the brand threw a kaleidoscope of influences and weirdo fabrics into the mix, and the results threw out comically large bags, battered garments and poetic musings rendered in contemporary typography. Not exactly the most consistent offering on the legend-filled Paris schedule, but there were enough ideas here to make for an entertaining spectacle nonetheless.
