• SHOKAY LAB COLLABORATION - BTS VIDEO

    This Fall Winter 2018 Collection is Arete’s inaugural collaboration with Shokay to design socially responsible knitwear made with yak down yarns. Inspired by Shokay’s mission to empower local communities through opening up markets to create premium products, Arete designer Christina Liao created a group of knitwear that transform yak natural fibers into everyday life. The Arete x Shokay collaboration knitwear group embody a sense of relaxed comfort with signature metal pin details from Arete’s FW18 collection, these pieces in neutral colors have a fashionable edge that pull together a stylish look during colder months of the year.

     

    在2018秋冬系列中ARETE迎来了与专业耗牛毛纺织品品牌Shokay的首次合作,打造出以性价比和舒适度为主要设计核心的优质针织品。受到Shokay通过开放本地市场从而激发本土优质产品的生产启发,ARETE主设计师Christina Liao将纯天然的耗牛毛以精妙绝伦的设计转化为日常生活中覆盖率超高的时尚针织单品。将针织品的柔软与舒适感锻造极致的ARETE X Shokay针织系列中,在标志性的金属细节和极具时尚感的边缘设计处理的点衬下,这些来自于纯天然的中性色彩让穿着者在纵使最寒冷的季节中亦能焕发出时髦低调的夺人光彩。

    MIDNIGHT BLOOM 子夜幽漾 (2017)

    “Midnight Bloom” fashion film is an artistic collaboration by Arete with Shanghai Ballet Troupe’s Principal Dancer (National First-class Dancer) Ms. Vivian Chen and cinematographer Derryck Menere. As an artistic integration between fashion, art, and dance, “Midnight Bloom” delivers a compelling visual composition that flows between light and darkness in reference to a woman’s feminine strength and resilience.

     

    “子夜幽漾”是Arete 2017秋冬系列的主题,该主题以栀子花的白、琥珀的深褐色和午夜的幽黑作为主色调,将来自花卉和大自然的柔和色彩运用于极具建筑感的轮廓之上,这正是Arete女性刚柔兼并的力量体现。本次影片仍由导演Derryck Menere掌镜,并邀请到国内知名舞蹈表演艺术家陈艳(Vivian Chen)担任创意编舞并亲自出演。短片通过以舞蹈结合制景的方式推进,舞者在精心编排的空间中营造出犹如盛放在午夜中的精致花朵,任凭风格和个性在光明与黑暗中游走。

    WINDSWEPT 在风中 (2016)

    Nominated for Best Cinematography by the 2017 International Fashion Film Awards, "Windswept" captures the Arete woman's spirit on a vast rice field scattered with futuristic wind turbines and covered in tall grass stems. Showcasing Arete’s Spring / Summer 2017 Collection's key designs inspired by Chinese-American artist Tracie Cheng's works, this fashion film directed by Derryck Menere unites visually fluid elements in the subject, costume, and surrounds into a powerful singular expression.

     

    大地覆盖着长草,散落着现代化的风车……获得第2017届国际时尚电影奖“最佳摄影奖”提名的“在风中”时尚影片在这片被微风轻抚的稻田中,俘获着春之精髓和Arete女性的精神所在。影片中所展示的Arete 2017春夏系列设计灵感取自于美籍华人艺术家程筱函的作品,并由导演Derryck Menere掌镜,在短片中,本系列的双重特质通过两种并置的视觉元素得到展现,并借由流畅的镜头、通过场景和主角,对概念做了更深的探索与更富张力地表达。

    WINDSWEPT FASHION ART EXHIBITION “在风中”时尚艺术展览 (2017)

    “Windswept” is an exquisitely curated exhibition of contemporary artwork, fashion design, and fashion film that explores self-expressions of fluidity, movement, and freedom. Using collaborative designs that convey airiness and kinetic energy taking flight, artist Tracie Cheng, fashion brand Arete, and Pata Gallery present a visually layered journey from an International Chinese perspective.

     

    Christina Liao, Head Designer for womenswear fashion brand Arete, remembers the moment she first saw the work of Asian American artist Tracie Cheng, whose textured, ethereal landscapes create three-dimensional spaces of two-dimensional surfaces. “I was immediately drawn to the movement and thought how amazing it would be to see it flow in the wind,” she says, describing the fabric inspiration behind Arete’s ‘Windswept’ themed Spring / Summer 2017 collection. Cheng says of the collaboration, “how my paintings weave and envelop the fabric is so much more than I could conceive. The contrasting movement and space in my paintings is well depicted in the gown; while layered and textured, it is also airy and kinetic. The bare lined fabric conveys a transparency and openness that I seek in my work. The collection is complex and yet simple, which is how I like to understand my paintings. It's wonderful to see this collaboration, and the paintings, come to life in this way.”

     

    “在风中”系列通过展览的形式,将当代艺术、时尚设计及影像拍摄完美糅合,以艺术的多重表达形式探索动静变换的流动性,在这之中追求自我表达的自由感。艺术家 Tracie Cheng、时尚品牌 Arete 和 Pata 画廊联手合作,启用万物相融的设计手法,传达出飘渺与逃离的动感,借此为大家呈现一场来自中国本土,却拥有国际展望的视觉分层之旅。

     

    Christina Liao,女性服装时尚品牌Arete的首席设计师,回忆起她第一次看到美籍亚裔艺术家Tracie Cheng作品时的触动,她作品上有交织的网纹,空灵飘渺的景观在二维空间上创造了三维空间的视觉。“我马上被这种流动感吸引了,思量着这幅作品若能随风而动,一定很惊艳。”她说起Arete2017春/夏季系列作品“在风中”主题背后的设计灵感来源。Cheng说到这个系列,“画作和面料交融的效果远超我的想象。我作品中流动和空间的比对完全体现在了服装上;搭配上不同层次和材质后,依然轻薄柔美而活跃。透视内衬的面料传达了透明感、开放感,而这也正是我的作品所表达的。这个系列复杂而简单,一如我对自己画作的理解。和Arete之间的合作、以及我的画作能以这样的方式焕发新生命,实在让人感到太美妙了。”
