The SHUTING QIU woman dares to express herself with asymmetry and experimentation in silhouettes, often resulting in rich contrasting colors of silk jacquards, intricate embroideries, and juxtapositions of linear and floral prints.

Currently based in Shanghai, the Chinese-born designer constantly finds inspiration in art, literature, cinema and travel. Shuting’s creations pay homage to the free, romantic and neurotic spirit of heroines such as Virginia Woolf and Pina Bausch.

Shuting Qiu won VFiles Runway 10, was a finalist for the inaugural BoF China Prize 2019, won the Special Prize at the BIG Design Award Japan, was a finalist of the H&M Design Award 2020 and most recently was selected within the Arise Fashion Week international new talents and invited by Vogue Talents to join the World of Vogue Talents.
Shuting Qiu’s collections often stem from female artist figures. For her Fall/Winter 2021 Collection, she extrapolates from the works of Swiss artist Miriam Cahn.

Miriam Cahn makes intimate, haunting artwork imbued with quiet emotion. With exquisite sensitivity, Cahn uses color to highlight the choice parts of her figures endowing them with a sense of inner life, contrasted against a background of subdued tones, representing society around them.

Shuting’s daring, modern romantic signature work shines in similar contrast, which, when inspired by Cahn’s compositions, explode into a palette of fluorescent colors: bold shades of yellow, fuchsia and electric blue. As with a Miriam Cahn painting, these bright motifs brush against calm, wintery shades of medium grey, charcoal and navy; exuberance agin melancholy.

The brand’s classic prints and check patterns combine with bright eco-fur applications on jacquard while a newly introduced bomber jacket, down jackets and jerseys add casual intent to the brand’s signature tailored silhouettes.
