Chinese international fashion brand Shanghai Tang celebrates its 20th anniversary as the global curator of Modern Chinese chic with a series of collaborations with the visionary creative talent Jacky Tsai. Inspired by the beauty of nature, this short film “A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” takes us on a mesmerizing journey through a series of six artworks by the talented Chinese artist Jacky Tsai. The video takes us on a continuous fall-through of captivating pop-art scenes that merge one into another to form a dream-like world. The mystic spiral made of round artworks imitate a hypnotic fall where one enters a world within a world (mise-en-abîme). Accompanied by original cinematic music that combines sounds of the East with a modern twist, it is a truly sensory experience that leaves the viewer with a sense of mystery. The Jacky Tsai x Shanghai Tang collections are centered on six artworks; the Floral Play, Lotus Porcelain, Carved Dragon, Ginger Flower, Petrol Rainbow and Flying Tiger. In the video, these six artworks are smoothly blended together into one universe to form the garden of vibrant dreams.
This magical dimension is filled with colorful energy, reflecting on the optimism of modern China. The artworks of Jacky Tsai inspired a limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories for women and men. These include the traditional qipao dresses, box clutches, cashmere shawls, a porcelain dining set, home products, iPad and iPhone cases, and even a skateboard.
