‘Cell Segregation’ 2015 Collection by Leonard Wong X Peter Popps
Born in 1986, Leonard Wong was raised in Shanghai. He has just announced his 2015 collections which collaborated with shoe designer Peter Popps. It’s called “Cell Segregation”, which includes collection and experimental lines.
Mutant cells exist in every generation.
Whether they thrive or perish, depends entirely on the needs to survive in the current environment; Natural selection:
“Natural Selection almost inevitably causes much Extinction of the less improved forms of life and induces what I have called Divergence of Character.”
~ Charles Darwin, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Vol 2
Dissecting and analysing from the very bases, to continually create and re-create the perfect form of “Evolution”, LEONARD WONG sweeps you away to his new world: His Laboratory.
