A Closer Look at CLOT's Fall/Winter 2021 Collection "New Dynasty" - Drop 1
For Fall/Winter 2021, CLOT takes from its rich history of paying homage to Chinese heritage with the “NEW DYNASTY” collection. In 2010, the CLOT “Dynasty” collection was released to celebrate the triumphs and history of Chinese culture. This new offering takes the same inspiration and updates it for an audience ten years later.
The collection as a whole represents a new leaf for CLOT, one that features even more luxurious cut-and-sew items that are made for a maturing audience. With key pieces made to mix and match with streetwear basics, this is the vision of a “NEW DYNASTY” as conceived by co-founder and creative director Edison Chen.
Bold patterns and lush fabrics set the tone for ‘NEW DYNASTY” with colors representing different Chinese dynasties and rich hues and unique details throughout the apparel. Highlight designs include the Panda Puffer Jacket and the Halftone Logo Hoodie. The Button-up Contrast Chinese Shirt represents CLOT’s mission to bridge the East and the West, fusing Western denim-inspired fabrics on a traditional Chinese frog-button shirt.
Traditional Chinese element patterns can be seen everywhere in the series, including dragons and phoenixes, tigers and Fengshui Bagua motifs referencing Chinese culture that is passed from generation to generation. Another example, is the traditional Chinese knotted rope in Drop 1's pants. Additionally, Drop 1 showcases a collaborative range of designs by both CLOT and A. FOUR LABS, presenting a variety of hoodies, T-shirts and Shirts.
CLOT Fall/Winter 2021 “NEW DYNASTY” will be available starting August 20, with new items releasing bi-weekly at JUICE locations worldwide and online.
