Xu Zhi archive editorial

Recently I finally got to work with a young talent, Xu Zhi, who is a fashion designer hailing from China but based in London. I met him at London Fashion week 2 seasons ago and immediately fell in love with his keen eye for innovative methods and design.

After our immediate bond we decided we had to work together at some point. Which we happily did on his resort17 lookbook as well as an archive editorial shot by my talented friends Scanderbergs, an Italian photography duo.

Xu gained his fashion design degree at Central Saint Martins and he has worked in a number of emerging designers’ studios including Craig Green and J.W. Anderson. Within a year of establishment. He was selected as a semi finalist of H&M Design Award in October 2015, and In the following year, Xu was shortlisted for LVMH PRIZE 2016 and International Woolmark Prize 2016/17.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful imagery as much as I do.
