The enigmatic Joe Chia launches "Chapter 06 - Raised By Wolves Fall/Winter 2015 Collection"
Raised By Wolves is the evolutionary process of the human anatomy, the concept of resiliance and adaptation. The mutation of particles to habituate to the requisites of its hosts. Chapter 06 embodies figure-moulded structures, highly accentuated in leather with distinctive finishes and washed out in a monochromatic palette.
In 2010 Joe Chia graduated from Raffles Design Institute, and with the vision of seeing his designs being worn by people on the streets, his eponymous label - JOE CHIA RTW was launched in 2012. JOE CHIA embodies classic, timeless and experimental pieces to be worn for years. Therefore, instead of following trends and the seasons, collections are launched in a sequence of chapters whereby each piece in every chapter narrates its individual story.
The label’s clothing language is the celebration of the designer’s innate Malaysian heritage. The label has increased a distinctive attention for details and functional qualities, whilst maintaining a strong connection to urban roots. “The Silent Drama,” described Joe.
Following the inception of the brand were collaborations with renowned international labels Chivas, Honda, Sony and Shu Eumura; and the recent UT Japan (UNIQLO), G-shock and Reebok. Awards involved Best Menswear Designer by Newman magazine, Top 40 under 40 from one of Asia’s most affluent publications – Prestige magazine and one of Asia’s most influential designers during the Mercedes Benz STYLO Asia Fashion Week in 2013.
