2016 is the year of China for Opening Ceremony.
The label has announced a year-long focus on the country, which will include a range of collaborations with influential designers including Anna Sui and Vivienne Tam.
The first collab as part of this focus is with Pearl River Mart, a NYC emporium and long-time neighbour of Opening Ceremony.
Timed with the Lunar New Year, the Opening Ceremony x Pearl River collection is the ultimate east meets west collaboration.
Signature Opening Ceremony silhouettes are reimagined in Chinese jacquards, with woven cherry blossom and lotus motifs.
One example is the classic Opening Ceremony varsity jacket, updated into a coach style and embroidered with multi-coloured phoenixes and dragons.
“This collection not only celebrates the cultural interplay between the east and the west but also between different generations, which have been our company's guiding principles for over 45 years.” Said President of Pearl River, Mrs Ching Yeh Chen, of the collab.
We can't wait to see what comes next.
