Maya Wang’s approach to menswear has always been about mixing things up, hence the name of her burgeoning brand, FRIED RICE. And for Spring/Summer 2022, Wang continues in that tradition by combining elements of color and graphics for her new collection.

FRIED RICE’s origin story stems from New York City and its Lower East Side neighborhood. Taking cues from the streets and sounds of the city for SS22, the collection includes a grey matching plaid short set with oversized pocket detail, a short-sleeved yellow vertical stripe top, and a long-sleeved yellow windowpane shirt with contrasting solid yellow pockets, collar and cuffs.

Cargo-style trousers and shorts are the bottom pairings of choice for the collection, offered up in shades of olive green, tan, black and grey. Standout items include the army green cargo pants with fun, multi-color strap details and a pink-and-sky blue plaid shirt with a contrasting solid pink chest pocket and collar.

Speaking about the brand ethos and inspiration for her collections, Wang says, “FRIED RICE started out as a fun nickname for the artistic and cultural diversity of our neighborhood in New York City’s Lower East Side. In an era recently plagued by xenophobia and fear of the ‘other,’ we have always seen this small grid of city blocks as a place of inspiration, diversity, creativity, and affinity for the uncommon perspective.”

“Its disparate elements are all mixed up into something greater than its parts,” she added.

Collection item prices range from $38 USD to $285 USD and can be found in specialty stores worldwide and on the brand’s website.

In other news, Taylor Bennett dropped his new limited-edition “Be Yourself” capsule collection with Champion.
