Quoc Thang Amsterdam Fashion Week fw2010
Malasian Quoc Thang today showed at the Amsterdam Fashion Week for the first time. He presented a small and sober menswear collection inspired by skippers-work-clothes, introduced by the sound of waves.
The skipper aspect was visible through some tunic t-shirts and overcoats. Quoc Thang also presented many woolly items like long cardigans and heavy woolly pants. We mostly saw shades of gray, beige and black. One outfit looked more like a skipper’s sleep-clothes, while it resembled a pajama. A strange-looking gray design with long braids attached, raised some questions.
For this show Quoc Thang cooperated with Timberland. The brand delivered all shoes and Quoc Thang designed one pair himself.
Quoc Thang (1979) was born in Malaysia and was educated at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. After his graduation he worked on several fashion projects in Paris and Berlin. In 2009 he started his own brand and named it Quoc Thang.
