Being originally from Chongqing (China), Sean Suen
has followed a path through different Chinese metropolises and educated himself in different art forms along the way. After practising painting and graphic design, he’s now an emerging menswear fashion designer who works in Paris, where we attended the presentation of his Fall/Winter 2018 collection. Inspired by the life of Puyi, China’s last emperor, it reflects on the idea of how social standards can define what we wear. After a harmonic and sensual show, we had the honour to look behind the curtain and sit down for a chat with him.
