Shanghai Tang’s AW18 Collection demonstrated a dreamlike journey from Italy to China. As the new Creative Director at Shanghai Tang, Massimiliano Giornetti brings an innovative and modern touch to the collection. Shanghai Tang introduced a ready-to-wear collection for this Fall: For womenswear, designed in delicate light silk, tops and dresses with ruffles bring out a classic and elegant style that well united the east and the west.
For menswear, Men’s suit jackets are designed with the iconic mandarin collar, while shirts with strips and playful pattern to bring out the uniqueness in style. In a contrast of warm Fall color tone and sharp colors is a highlight of the season. The newly launched scarf collection continues its ongoing love affair with floral prints, the iconic “Shou” symbol and Shanghai Tang’s brand name are also the design elements.
August 2018 sees sought-after designer Mike Amiri bring a Mens and Womenswear capsule collection exclusively to JOYCE.
Known for his irreverent take on high fashion, the West Coast native draws on the dark energies of the streets of Los Angeles. AMIRI Fall – Winter 2018 presentations pulsate with nostalgia for the zenith of American 80’s and 90’s grunge rock and skate culture. Inspired by the likes of Nirvana, the late Scott Weiland and iconic bad-boy Johnny Depp, the overall impression is a nod to the darker side of the Hollywood scene. Add to that elements of cult movie “The Lost Boys” – a movie about vampires prowling the Californian Coast – and the collection indulges the rebellious side, without compromising on a high-end finish.
Adapted for a contemporary audience, the oversized, loose-fitted layering, distressed leather, ripped denim and sterling silver chain detailing acknowledge the unquestionable classicism of rock and roll. As well as presenting his Fall-Winter 2018 Mens and Womens collections, the AMIRI x JOYCE Pop-up features a global exclusive capsule. The offering comprises of five pieces, including a luxe purple hoodie with New World Tower emblazoned on the sleeve. Both ranges will be presented in an environment reminiscent of the atmospheric AMIRI Fall-Winter 2018 runway: vigil-esque candlelit tiers of white blossoms with opulent red velvet drapes on the walls and deep burgundy Persian carpets underfoot.
The AMIRI Pop-up is now open at the JOYCE Central flagship store until mid-September 2018.

Wear the pieces individually, or pair the accessories with head-to-toe denim for major style points.
The capsule will be available in selected stores and at monki.com from late-August.

Designed as a 24/7, work-to-weekend bag, the Whitney combines a sophisticated silhouette with on-the-go versatility.
