TAIPEI (The China Post) – DOUCHANGLEE, Taiwan’s well-known fashion brand, recently joined hands with Taiwanese artist Lee Kan Kyo to launch its 2019 Spring Summer Fashion Show.

台灣知名時裝品牌DOUCHANGLEE,近日攜手旅日臺灣藝術家李漢強,共同推出2019春夏時尚大秀。

The designer duo, composed of Stephane Dou and ChangLee Yugin, combined Lee’s hand-paint artwork in their latest designs to reinterpret the combination of cultures among common people and the practicability of wearing.

設計師夫妻檔竇騰璜及張李玉菁跨界結合李漢強手繪畫作,於單品中重新演繹庶民文化與實穿結合的可能性。

DOUCHANGLEE was established in 1995. The brand, which was repositioned in 2014 in order to develop across foreign markets, is not only renowned for its sharp yet gentle approach that conveys the contemporary culture, but also its sharp design and focuses on color tension.

DOUCHANGLEE成立於1995年,品牌在2014年重新定位開拓國際市場。風格簡潔並充滿色彩張力,以剛柔並濟的輪廓傳遞當代人文思潮而聞名。

Looking for a balance between retro and future, the designers are good at using innovative design techniques to form a strong contrast with classic tailoring. Its design concept is to turn the tangible into abstract symbols.

設計師兩人在復古與未來之間尋找美麗想像,並擅於運用創新的設計手法與經典剪裁形成強烈對比,以化具象符號為抽象概念為設計主軸。

The main design concept this season is “Signal Confusion.” Through the alternation of lines and plaids, and the use of neon, perspective, plastic tassels, and other effects, the hippie atmosphere of the 1970s is brought back to life.

品牌本季設計理念為《訊號混調》,透過線條與格紋的變化,運用霓虹、透視、塑料流蘇等效果,表現的除了是1970年代的嬉皮氣息。

Besides, the new collection vividly showcases the illusion of spatial displacement brought about by massive information and various cultural symbols under the era of internet technology.

更展現了網路科技時代下,大量訊息與文化符號流動所帶來的空間錯覺概念。

The interpretation with this kind of meta-modernism style – shirts transformed into dresses or long skirts, suits combined with chiffon, tassels made of colored plastic ropes and black mesh bags, which is of much Taiwanese essence;

這樣帶有混沌現代主義風格的詮釋──襯衫解構成洋裝、長裙,西裝結合雪紡,彩色塑膠繩製成的流蘇以及黑色網袋等帶有台灣特色的設計。

simple and disorderly style interlaced between stripes and the cubist collage combined with elegant outlines, all cleverly forms an elegant, grotesque and yet extremely reasonable misplaced atmosphere under “Signal Confusion.”

簡約與雜亂風格交錯於條紋之間,立體派拼貼與飄逸的輪廓描繪,皆巧妙形成《訊號混調》下優雅、怪誕又極為合理的錯置氛圍。

Asked about the new collection, Design Director ChangLee Yugin said: “The brand is scanning the signal mixing phenomenon in the lives of people; in fact, it is representing a new dressing attitude between order and disorder.”

設計總監張李玉菁提到:「掃瞄庶民生活中的信号混合現象,其實就是在有序/無序中,呈現出新的著裝態度。

“We rematch and collide various elements such as male-female ratio, soft and hard lines, practicalism and decorativeness so that the contemporary chaotic aesthetics displays the misplacement vibe.”

我們將對比的元素碰撞,像是男女比例、軟硬線條、實用與裝飾主義,重新進行搭配,箇中有著錯置產生的當代混沌美學。」

“Business Service,” Artist Lee Kan Kyo’s colorful painting, is fully displayed in the design as well, allowing the fashion haute couture to regain the charm from the culture of common people.

藝術家李漢強 Lee Kan Kyo手繪畫作《工商服務》中斑瀾的色彩也充分展現於單品之中,讓時尚高訂重新找回屬於庶民的文化魅力。

The artwork – the classification of newspaper advertisement, symbolizes all walks of life and the characteristics people in the society own. At the same time, sub-groups and cultural exchanges from different ethnic groups all bring changes and more room for interpretation to the already diverse world.

報紙廣告的徵才分類象徵著各行各業在社會上所占有的特色與位置,次群體的文化活動、族群交流等,更為世界的多元面貌及改變帶來更多可詮釋的空間。
