I’ve never really been a fan of wearing traditional Chinese garb. Perhaps it was due to my stint as a Miss LA Chinatown court member, where I had to strut around in an uncomfortably tight qipao or maybe it’s because wearing them in America makes me feel antiquated and takes me back to those days when being Chinese meant being discriminated against and made fun of (metaphorically speaking, of course. I wasn’t around in the 50′s or 60′s).
But Akufuncture– a Chinese culture inspired clothing brand that draws inspiration from the historical Imperial Palace to create looks for a contemporary audience– makes wearing Chinese-inspired attire cool again.
According to their site, Akufuncture rides the fine dichotomy between high fashion and street-wear. Whether it be t-shirts with calligraphy stroked letters or blood-red inked imprints, Akufuncture’s collection is edgy, clean, and ready to wear.
