Adeam Spring Summer

The Adeam brand by Japanese designer Hanako Maeda — Hanako was impressed by the Soho area during a trip to Hong Kong, the meeting point between eastern and western culture. She was inspired by the young locals who mixed traditional Chinese dress with new streetwear — “that lead to my exploration of Seventies disco” aiming to bridge cultures in her fashion and encourage people to break away from a homogeneous way of dressing. In an unexpected way Maeda fused Seventies disco with traditional Chinese fashion creating a collection that aims at conveying concepts like optimism, integration, and individuality. In her mind, Studio 54 was where people felt free to express themselves through clothes.
