This 100% silk east-meets-west mini skirt cheongsam featuring pop-art style soda bottles rewrites the Intangible Cultural Heritage of the cheongsam; the unique long butterfly sleeves inspired by the iconic water sleeves (水袖) in Chinese operas are of the same length as the western style A-line mini skirt itself; together with a peekaboo side slit and our brand signature lambskin Mandarin collar, this ultra-modern piece reinvents the traditional cheongsam into something daring, funky and sexy.
The refreshing fizz from glass-bottled sodas commonly found in neighborhood stores in HK back in the 1960’s to 1990’s witnessed numerous Hongkongers’ childhood, and is where this Pop Art style design took inspiration from – the sweet memory when sipping an icy cold soda at your street corner store was the highlight of a child’s day. Even to this day, most people still insist that bottled sodas taste more ‘authentic’ than canned sodas, maybe because it brings back sweet memories of yesteryear!
