Another new addition to the KAIZEN AMSTERDAM Fall/Winter range is this Chengdu Shi Hoodie. Its features include drop-shoulder elongated sleeves and a body with a durable French terry top stitched to finish for a comfortable yet luxurious fit and feel.
The front print states the phrase “你做啥子嘛”, written in the native dialect of the people of the Chengdu city. The phrase can be translated to “what are you up to?” The back characters spell “Chengdu Shi”, meaning the city of Chengdu.
Executed in a beige colorway representing Chengdu’s tall buildings, the prints highlight the importance of any linguistic culture residing within a city. The way citizens communicate tells the very story of their histories and the history of the places they are and have come from.
