Fashion goes beyond trends and seasons, since fashion is above all a story of garments – and with that comes the idea of fashion as the best tool of resilience. This is at least what Harry Xu is defending – because fashion is and has always been one of the most organic methods of self-expression – the young designer is focusing on an interesting point of everybody’s life, provided that freedom exists: selecting your clothes to release yourself. But Xu's characters are prisoners. As such, he prefers to focus on the gradual transformation from devil-may-care street teenagers to mature men of society – the resilience so to say. By experimenting with what we all consider to be the boundaries of the ‘man’, familiar shapes are modernised and challenged with romantically playful embroidery.
