Made In China - And Made OF China

In some Mediterranean countries people have been breaking crockery to get rid of material goods, in order to receive the New Year, for centuries. The Chinese designer Li Xiaofeng got inspired by this tradition and started recycling glass and porcelain in his new line of artistic clothing.

Li - who originally was trained as a muralist - takes shards of traditional ceramics from the Song, Ming, Yuan and Qing dynasties, and then sews them together, like a puzzle, on a leather background to create these stunning garments. Each piece is hand shaped and polished. Then holes are drilled into each corner and linked together with silver wire.

Here is the master himself, with the unique polo shirt he created for Lacoste.

There's a slightly more confortable version of the shirt too!

These porcelain clothes are wearable though!

Not sure they're so very lightweight...

...But if Li Xiaofeng wanted me to wear one of his creations I would surely say yes!


  1. These clothes are actually amazing, thanks so much for sharing this Miss Meadows, there's a lot of genius and eye for amazingly intricate details in these clothes that I just can't help but love. Awesome post.

  2. Kinda looks a bit like a terracotta warrior to me! X
