SANKUANZ has unveiled its Fall/Winter 2024 collection, inspired by the mystical Kangrinboqê, a holy mountain in Tibet that has been a source of inspiration for the brand since its debut in 2013. The collection explores the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures, as well as the balance between luxury and streetwear, through a variety of styles, colors, and motifs.

The garments had a loose and generous silhouette, reminiscent of traditional Chinese clothing, but with a modern twist. The Tibetan robe draping was a recurring element, appearing on coats, sweatshirts, and jackets, adding a sense of fluidity and elegance. The cross-collar, inspired by the Tibetan khata scarf, was reinterpreted in various ways, such as twisted jackets, shirts, wrapped collars, dresses, and jeans. The color palette was inspired by nature, featuring burgundy, brown, olive, and blue tones, reflecting the respect for nature inherent in Eastern religions.

One of the most striking features of the collection was the dagger motif, which adorned zippers, drawstrings, boots, and mules. The dagger, also known as the phurba, is a ritual instrument used in Tibetan Buddhism, symbolizing the power to cut through ignorance and negativity. The dagger motif also appeared in a jewelry collection, which complemented the outfits with a touch of edginess.

The collection also included a collaboration with Miki Kim, a South Korean tattoo artist and illustrator, who created the ‘Human Orchid Mantis’ series. The artworks depicted the hybrid form of a woman and a mantis, expressing the contrast between beauty and danger, as well as the ability to adapt and survive. The artworks were printed on T-shirts, hoodies, jackets, and pants, adding a graphic and vibrant element to the collection.

Another highlight of the show was the capsule collection inspired by the Bumpy sneaker, the latest signature shoe by SANKUANZ. The sneaker, which features a chunky sole and a mesh upper, is designed to be versatile and comfortable, suitable for any occasion.
