With a global spotlight on China’s booming economy, the country’s more nuanced areas of growth have been overshadowed in recent years. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the “Waking Dragon” boasts a fascinating underbelly, complete with young culture to rival anything coming out of the West.
Founded in 2003 by Edison Chen and Kevin Poon, CLOT is at the forefront of that movement. The company is as multifaceted as they are creative, specializing in CLOT-branded products and fashion, music and event production, design services, and PR consulting. All of those endeavors have culminated in Chen and Poon opening renowned JUICE boutiques in cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei, and Kuala Lumpur.
As guest curator of Chapter 52, CLOT will show us a side of China we don’t often see. Starting with an interview between co-owner Edison Chen and the RZA, we will also explore the legend of the King of Kowloon, profile international fashion photographer Wing Shya, explore Basquiat’s impact on Chinese streetwear design, and get a tour of Nigo’s® Harajuku. Other Chapter 52 contributors include Murakami, KAWS, Bobby Hundreds, Michael Dupouy, and many more.
