ZUCZUG – Chinese Silhouette
ZUCZUG is a chinese brand founded by 2002 and established by chinese designer Wang Yiyang. He thinks that chinese designer always focus on the “Chinese signature” designs, but he think that their designs are too complicated , he wants his designs to be simple. Wang want to apply lifestyle to fashion, to show the relax , slow and simple like styles in fashion.His brand focuses on “Clothing” not “Fashion”, and his target customer should be people from real life. That’s why he said that everyone should be Zuczug’s modal. Wang want to show chinese own pattern cutting in his fashion, he thinks that size can change everything. He takes inspiration from Yohji Yamamoto, from his theory of fashion “Everything is oversize.”. Wang thinks that Japanese silhouette comes from Japanese Kimono. He wants to find chinese own silhouette from old costume, chinese architecture and lifestyle.
I like the brand name and the way they divided different lines in this brand. They named their own line as ZUCZUG/0, means start from basic. Their lifestyle line called ZUCZUG/for you, which focus on stationary and lifestyle product.
