Shanghai Tang x Fine Artist Gao Ludi Limited Edition Fashion & Art Collaboration Series “Fresh SHEEN”

Media OutReach – 31 March 2023 – For Spring 2023, Shanghai Tang and Chinese artist Gao Ludi jointly launched the “Fresh SHEEN” collaboration series, presenting unique clothing and home products. The word “fresh” in the traditional Chinese context refers to the freshness of food, while the English word “SHEEN”, is like the Chinese pronunciation, a visual concept, specifically referring to the luminous color.

We invited Fine Artist Gao Ludi to reinterpret Shanghai Tang with a unisex limited capsule collection. Bringing the artist’s bold use of colour from his paintings, Gao Ludi created a series of intricately hand-crafted vests and jackets inspired by industrial protective garments accentuated with reflective material within the innovative design features. Reflective ropes create hidden light waves within the garment, and an Oriental touch is expressed through the matching frog buttons and the contrasting colour edging. The design elements perfectly combine and express themes of construction, art, and craftsmanship, bringing a fresh new style to Shanghai Tang that yearns to Make Life A Party.
The “Fresh SHEEN” collection took inspiration from senses of taste and smell in the use of colour. Gao Ludi incorporates the “freshness” from nature, giving tableware a light color scheme, imitating abstract water and imagery of grass to provide a scenic and tranquil atmosphere.
For the home fragrance diffuser, Gao Ludi created a series of abstract mushroom umbrella tops, which were used as the main visual element on the bottles in different sizes. The confrontation of the two concepts creates a unique sensory association that resonates with the artist’s creative lineage of colliding colors and forms.
