THE TRUE MEANING OF "JADED" EXPLORED IN CLOT'S SS22 COLLECTION - DROP 2
One of the most prominent and symbolic gems of China, the jade has been integral to the development of Chinese culture. The gemstone to this day has maintained its historical relevance and status, and with that, has grown in artistic value.
Paying tribute to the pinnacle of millennia-old tradition and values, CLOT has sought to display this strong heritage in an international setting with its newest Spring Summer 2021 collection “JADED”. Seeking to bridge the East-and-West, the term “JADED” can take reference from both cultures, one of tradition and one of youth.
CLOT weighs in with its historical relevance and references of the Chinese jade, and adding in the true definition of what it means to be “JADED”. This upcoming release features a range of different silhouettes, from streetwear classics like t-shirts, hoodies, and updated crewnecks —to traditional garments and accessories remixed through a contemporary lens.
References to “JADED” include the use of psychedelic inspiration with kaleidoscopic pattern prints, hypnotic graphics, and wavey-like textile fabrics —which all hint at the true nature of the term. These artistic styles are reimagined through CLOT’s use of old-age traditional Chinese inspiration, including mythic beasts like a dragon and phoenix, heritage silhouettes like the Chinese shirt, and even embellishments of old Chinese calligraphic script.

One of the more unique inclusions of the collection, which truly represent the blend of cultures, are the minimalist design details of the historically-significant jade gemstone disc pendant intertwined with a symbolic red cord.
