MONTAGUT X Chen SiyuChinese New Year Capsule Collection

MONTAGUT collaborated with Chinese illustrator and picture book writer Chen Siyu for the creation of our Chinese New Year capsule collection. Chen, who graduated from Tsinghua University and New York School of Visual Arts, explains her artwork: “In order to celebrate the Year of the Tiger in the Lunar calendar, I drew the tiger posture as it is usually represented in Chinese classical literature, lying in a row and its eyes wide open. The tiger is the king of all animals and has been a symbol of vitality, courage, good luck and health since ancient times. I added phoenix, clouds and lotus in the background to highlight traditional Chinese auspicious elements implying peace and joy. And I used a brush to draw black and white lines, and then computer color, so that the effect would be more modern. Just like MONTAGUT, I hope to better integrate Eastern and Western cultures, traditions with modernity.”
