  • This is my favorite at the moment right now, because I also just escaped onto my mama's.

  • Well, she was like, I really want something and I was like, I'll give you this.

  • This is where the magic happens because if you look at the history off clothing, like culturally, the Japanese are very well preserved in the kimonos and the geisha world.

  • And then you have Indians.

  • You have the saris, and all of that clothing is still very rich and embraced in their culture.

  • But the Chinese like Tom John and she power with something that's not so integrated.

  • But if we were cheap, how now that people be like, uh, what happened today?

  • Is it Chinese New Year way?

  • Put it into this category where it's festivals and celebrate everywhere, and it's not really everyday where so if you do wear it every day, you will get a certain look of like, Oh my God, I'm Lord Holger.

  • But it's like, how do we break away from that mindset?

  • Hello, I'm Jason.

  • I'm one half of Yup it.

  • Hi, I'm Onion.

  • I'm another part off your pit.

  • From the start off the brand It was always about bringing traditional Chinese way into nowadays where it's relevant and people understand it.

  • We really looked at our own the way we dressed, what clothing we owned.

  • And then from that we was like, Oh, there's something missing here.

  • We wanna wear it, but it's not available yet.

  • The wardrobe is dominated by T shirts and jeans, and it's a very daily necessity that everybody wears.

  • But the Chinese like Tom John and she Pau is something that's not so integrated.

  • The route off the idea was toe usual, the Chinese elements.

  • I mean the history of all the different dynasties, and there's literally so much you can learn from.

  • There's like, what, 5000 years of history, even for us to understand it, Maura, and how those pieces of clothing can fit into your daily wardrobe when we living in some shape, our you can't avoid seeing all these inspiration and those starting to infuse into our research on that.

  • Slowly, we realized the picture is very clear that we should be doing some show Hong Kong Chinese culture inspire.

  • I feel like the first collection was definitely shapes based because we were really looking at the Qing Dynasty like the shapes of all the traditional women's clothing, and it was very opposite to how the Western course that was.

  • It was very figure hooking.

  • It showed the feminine body and the busts.

  • And but in the Chinese world, it was very just fabric.

  • You know, you were just covered up.

  • Maybe you'd have these tiny feet, but then you have these big light on top.

  • It was a huge oversized shape on, and we're comparing this shape with the Western hip hop style.

  • Yeah, but we didn't intentionally want to make it call.

  • We wanna make it relevant.

  • But with our own kind of like weirdness and our own touch, I feel like that's how sometimes our research happens.

  • Is that it?

  • It's just a feeling of like, why am I so obsessed with this new button or this hem of the trouser or this new shoe or this research that we found?

  • And we get really obsessed and we're kind of fall into that kind of mode of like, breaking it with all apart and then regurgitating it in a way that is our own.

  • We're a little bit like scavengers.

  • We like to collect stuff.

  • When we have loads of like this stuff, it could be like a vest top.

  • Then it could be like some things that were printed out that we've seen way.

  • Just collect it all together.

  • And then eventually, when we're at that point where were actually designing pieces, those research items come out and then it helps us along with that process.

  • Thes air photos checking by our years fried brain hand.

  • This is actually the second slot off territories by hand.

  • E think 2020.

  • We're embracing a lot more than we used to in terms of Chinese clothing.

  • Obviously, I think for the past few years that you can see, like the wave of people going back and searching into their culture and their roots and embracing it.

  • Even if you look at the matrix and the costumes that they're doing it, it's very heavily influenced by Chinese, where people who get it are already there.

  • First wear rings to fight that like there's definitely something in that quality that people navigate towards because it represents a certain zen nous and beauty.

  • And you know when you're dressed in that Chinese where in an outfit It's always nice when your personalizing it with your own styling.

  • And maybe you don't wanna wear the confuse shoes.

  • Maybe you wanna wear it with a different like sneaker or level laced up Dr Martin shoe.

  • Or just I think those details that you insert in your look will make it not so like Oh, my God, That's really okay.

  • I get it.

  • Now you're wearing my head to toe Chinese way.

  • I get it right.

  • Where is what you wanna do is not thes so obvious so that maybe yeah, there's gotta be a good marbling off things.

  • You know that for us, our intuition is the Tell us.

  • Don't overuse it.

  • Let's reinterpret it in our way, Yeah.
