Characterized by a deconstructionist aesthetic, SANKUANZ’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection blends high fashion and streetwear styles. Titled “A Room With No Sound,” founder and creative director Shangguan Zhe elevates the brand’s cadence of wide-ranging inspiration by not only blending dress notes but by re-incorporating elements from previous collections.

By blending an array of styles, the collection’s slightly dystopian persona represents the destruction of social class and the resulting celebration of uniqueness. Garments like square-shouldered suits, elongated button-down shirts, exaggerated sweatsuits, restructured co-ord sets and formless pants showcase Zhe’s contemporary approach to evolving dress notes. Outerwear pieces serve as an eye-catching offering featuring floor-length overcoats in multicolored furs and printed designs.

Additionally, collection pieces are elevated by graffiti prints, steel embellishments, voluminous tulle and various textures — showcasing both the range and complexity of emotion. One collection highlight is an oversized black crocodile leather biker jacket that is embellished with gold metal SANKUANZ logo pieces all over. For a tailored offering, another collection highlight is a monochromatic suit ensemble consisting of a structured asymmetrical single-button blazer and relaxed crinkled nylon pants.

To further create the dystopic atmosphere, models walked down the runway with cloudy white eyes and alien cheekbone accents while holding abstract human-inspired sculpture pieces created by artist, Yuyu Wang. Check out the collection video above that took place at the former Union Church in Shanghai, China.
