Xu Zhi

Xuzhi Chen was born in China and graduated from Central Saint Martins. He worked for industry boundary-pushers J.W. Anderson and Craig Green. Influenced creatively by the city, London became an obvious choice of location to begin his brand. After establishing his signature technique of yarn and embroidery with his graduate collection, Chen was soon nominated for the H&M Design Awards in 2015, the infamous LVMH Prize in 2016, followed shortly after by the Woolmark Prize in the same year. The combination of technical skill and curiosity in fabric experimentation has resulted in commercial success as well as creative collaborations with numerous well -established brands. Sold in Paris only at Sprezzatura and listed since SS17.
