For the Spring/Summer 2013 season, Taiwanese designer Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia created for Shiatzy Chen a neo-chinese chic collection, in which the traditional aesthetic of the Orient collided with Western modernity.

The classic Chinese silhouettes were reformulated in fine fabrics, inspired by couture fashion. Satin jackets paired with cropped pants, taffeta dresses and a series of looks embroided with Chinese caligraphy created an elegant line-up, with a modern twist.
