MARRKNULL’s collection initially seems to be a humorous take on the stereotypical “Chinese tourist” as we see models wearing hiking boots and baseball caps carrying bejewelled phones and selfie sticks. With a backdrop of various Chinese landmarks, it’s easy to see where this inspiration could have come from. Upon further reflection, however, we realise that this season’s clothing is actually a celebration and exploration of Chinese culture.
