Afro-Thai designer Chu Suwannapha creates a special installation at Pitti Uomo
It’s Chluaap’s happy fashions that will color Pitti Uomo with a special installation in the Sala delle Nazioni. The brand – founded in 2015 by designer Chu Suwannapha, Thai by birth and South African by adoption – has earned a name for itself on the contemporary men’s fashion scene thanks to a captivating blend of colors, shapes, and textures.

It is no accident that Suwannapha has been dubbed “Prince of Prints.” The creative power that comes from his background, combined with an innovative approach to combinations and shapes is a unique celebration of today’s Africa. It brings together traditions, techniques, and details from batik to origami to embroidery. Bold, broad, and squared lines create an experimental androgynous aesthetic that is projected towards the future.

On Wednesday, June 14, at 2 p.m., the Sala delle Nazioni will host a special presentation by Chu Suwannapha.
