China Art: Li Xiao Feng for Lacoste 2010

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Email this to someone

Following the Hubei artist’s success of “Beijing Memory 1 and 2” that he calls “wearable art” made of porcelain shards from the Qing and Ming dynasties strung together by steel, Li was commissioned by Lacoste to do a limited edition design for their Holiday 2010 Collector series complete with the crocodile logo. 20,000 printed polo tees inspired by the signature beautiful porcelain pieces are on sale—a collection for men and women.




Fortunately, despite just missing the Paris opening in June, the show will have a homecoming to Bejing this Autumn 2010, at Red Gate Gallery.

Li Xiao Feng’s works are on show permanently at Beijing hotel The Opposite House.

    The jacket is great: it looks just like a Moncler one – but I guess it’s not as soft!

    @ no onion please yes it’s stunning, I’ve seen the Mao suit done in colourful porcelain.. one of them was at the hotel in place of the original as they had taken that piece for maintenance.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    @ Jacques, Thanks for stopping by. This blog is with wordpress, and you pay I think 10USD per year for a domain name, it’s really easy to set up. good luck!
