Shanghai Tang Gets a Brand New Look for Pre-Fall 2021 With Designer Yuni Ahn

Chic aesthetics brought by the former creative director of Maison Kitsuné and design director of CELINE.

Shanghai Tang, the luxury Hong Kong fashion house founded in 1994, has received a whole new look and aesthetic thanks to its Pre-Fall 2021 collaboration with Yuni Ahn. The designer, who has previously worked as the creative director of Maison Kitsuné and design director of CELINE, has given the label a chic makeover.

Comprised of ready-to-wear garments, bags, shoes, scarves and more, the collection celebrates the confidence and attitude of the modern woman. Keeping true to the brand’s heritage, Ahn has taken Chinese influences such as the qipao, lattice, bamboo and moon to create contemporary styles. This time around, the Pre-Fall 2021 range takes inspiration from the designer’s experience in Hong Kong during the ’90s, revisiting nostalgic moments found in Wong Kar-wai’s iconic film Chungking Express.

Hints of the qipao can be found on a series of tops with angled button plackets, as well as the high split collars. A silk jacket also takes subtle design cues from the traditional Chinese dress to resemble a mini qipao. Elsewhere, accessories like handbags and scarves are kept simple with bamboo- and lattice-inspired details.

Scroll through the gallery above to explore Shanghai Tang’s Pre-Fall 2021 collection designed by Yuni Ahn. The range is available at the brand’s Hong Kong boutiques and online.
