AW17, Ray Chu stays focusing on understated details with playing with placed grommet and hardware detail and frayed edge hem on denim and poplin. The collection was inspired by the street of humid winter in Taipei.
This season, Ray Chu continues to play with denim with a darker shade of federal blue. With playing on frayed edge and P.P. spray to create a look of soaked pants hem and decomposed flyers on the street of the rain. Using of patent leather to create a reflective sheen from the after rain street.
From beeswax quilting to Pomegranate foiled knit corduroy—from federal blue denim to reflective patent leather —all in clean shapes and of the slightest silhouettes—Ray Chu stays focused on orchestrating the imagination with the most diverting understated details like the use of meticulously placed hardware; screw nickel-back grommets, snap buttons, and playing with contrasting proportion looks. All of which represent the brand’s uninhibited spirit struggles with isolation and interaction with the society.
