36 Chambers is the latest foray into apparel by the one and only RZA of Wu-Tang Clan.
Drawing heavily from Wu-Tang motifs, the new collection incorporates elements of mathematics and Eastern symbology, used across a range of jackets, bags, shirts and accessories that can be viewed in the brand’s inaugural lookbook.
Key silhouettes include satin and cordura bomber jackets with rear embroidered detail and a satin jacket with mandarin collar, shown in the gallery above. The first launch is tied into the Golden Dragon, a Chinese symbol of wisdom, energy and strength, while further installations will also look to the Chinese calendar for inspiration.
The clothing is manufactured entirely without animal leather, adhering to RZA’s vegan lifestyle, which even earned him an award from PETA last year. The project is a collaboration between RZA and Mustafa Shaikh, who runs the production side of the young label.
Online availability begins on November 18, with pop-up events scheduled for December. Stay posted for more news from 36 Chambers.
