Shushu/Tong: Ready-to-wear AW21

This one’s for all the pretty girls with an edge. You know, the ones that pair a graceful flowing dress with steel-toed leather biker boots? This season, Shanghai-based brand Shushu/Tong looked to the future. A sense of reality merged with a taste of a fantastical tomorrow through three-dimensional, handcrafted polka dots and concave dots pressed onto leather and waterproof fabrics in refreshing cuts.

Last season’s pink checks were upgraded to royal blue and burnt orange two pieces, while the ruffles and shiny satin fabrics were replaced with ruched navy dresses and Men In Black-style leather peplum trench coats. Each look came complete with square-toed platform babydoll shoes, making for a pretty fab wardrobe with serious grit in its teeth.
