Materials and attention to technique play an especially big role at Mijia Zhang and Wei Lin’s brand PH5. The duo are finalists for the #BoFChinaPrize , which takes place later this month. Having cut her teeth at brands including Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane and Nike, Parsons-trained Zhang helms the brand’s "right brain," while PH5’s "left brain" is managed by Lin, who holds a degree in business and entrepreneurship.
The two founded their label in 2014 and hope to bring a young and contemporary vision to the knitwear scene by marrying whimsical and graphic designs with innovative techniques. Their collections are full of colourful yet wearable basics that would separately upgrade the most monochrome of wardrobes, but together evoke a cohesive and vivid brand identity.
Stay tuned for profiles of the other finalists of the BoF China Prize, held in partnership with Yu Holdings, and learn more about the talents as they prepare to compete at the end of the month during #ShanghaiFashionWeek [Link in bio]
