Based in the southern Chinese creative hub of Xiamen City, SANKUANZ focuses on upbeat and progressive menswear. The brand's offering is infused with youthful energy, irony-laden references and fragments taken from popular culture. SANKUANZ's FW16 presentation in Paris took its cues from the first-ever Asian Olympics that took place in Beijing in 1990, which made the country's communist regime go sports crazy as a means of flexing its might.
Taking the energy of sportswear and using those Asian games as a reference point, the collection reworked hoodies and track pants into something altogether different using sleek and directional tailoring. Military-inspired shapes were fused with the casualness of sportswear and combined with an eclectic set of fabrics - including smooth baby corduroy, plush intarsia and featherweight nylon.
