Vivienne Tam’s inspiration this season was the Chinese character for nothingness.Starting with the Asian philosophy of creating an empty space that gives way to something new and unexpected, Tam explores concept, design and form, to present an intuitive and unique collection.
“When I saw this character of ‘nothingness’ written by master calligrapher Dong Yangzi, I was moved not only by the artistry, but also by the profundity of the concept. During this period of global economic turmoil, the idea of the return to a state of emptiness and simplicity from which to renew our lives seemed particularly timely.”
Tam’s use of the character for “nothingness” in Chinese calligraphy appears throughout her line in different motifs, materials, prints, shapes and sizes. Out of emptiness comes surprise and renewal.
