Blanc de Chine will celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2013. What started as a humble workshop in Hong Kong has blossomed into a multi-national brand with shops located in Hong Kong, Beijing and New York. Our Spring / Summer 2013 collection is not only a review of our success over the last 20 years, but also a reflection of our vision of the future.

Blanc de Chine refers to the eight fundamental elements of simplicity, serenity, harmony, purity, subtlety, sensuality, functionality, and comfort. We fuse Eastern and Western elements to create an exquisite and unique blend of Chinoiserie, expertly mixing Chinese values, designs, and craftsmanship with Western fabrics, styling and technology.

Blanc de Chine is more than fashion, it is a lifestyle. Different cultural traditions affect our perception of aesthetics. Among the complexity of cultural values and ever-changing elements of lifestyle, we believe there are certain aspects of classical beauty in any culture that are universal and timeless. We seek these values to explore and fulfill our goal of timeless modernism.

Womenswear

To celebrate the anniversary of the brand, for Spring / Summer 2013 we have adopted an emphasis on Blanc de Chine color – a luscious, creamy shade of off-white/beige. The color comes in a variety of fabrics, including luxurious silk and our travel-friendly poly crepe. Smooth, sensuous silk was discovered in ancient China and has attracted admirers worldwide. The delicate fabric is generously applied in our collection to convey a woman’s elegance with an understated nod to Chinese culture. Poly crepe has always been popular with our customers. The fiber is made from tightly twisted yarns and admired for its versatility. The fabric requires minimal maintenance, making our tunics and Qi Paos the most functional of their kind.

The women’s collection also consists of a number of formal gowns. These spectacular pieces are made with our lightweight sequined fabric, in subtle matte with a glamorous shimmer, which glides on the body. The designs are sensational and subtle at the same time - with diamante crystal beadings, hidden pleats, and the use of sheer fabrics.

Menswear

Functionality, one of Blanc de Chine’s eight fundamental elements, is a focal point of this collection. In light of the recent rise in temperatures across the globe, we are introducing a revolutionary short-sleeve version of our best-selling Chinese tuxedo.

Mirroring our original Chinese tuxedo jacket, the short-sleeve version has an elegant silk satin piping and our meticulous thread-wrapped hook. It gives an instant slimming effect, and most importantly, exudes subtle sophistication at a special occasion. This modern jacket pairs well with our formal trousers as well as our new formal shorts, both of which feature silk satin piping.

A suit is never complete without a shirt. As in past collections, this season’s shirts feature the finest cotton from Switzerland. We’ve also included short-sleeve shirts to complement our new short-sleeve tuxedo suit.
