Object statement
Ensemble, womens, comprising orange imitation leather dress and Union Jack design loafers, 'Say goodbye to the Queen' collection, Pacino Wan/ She & He Ltd, Hong Kong Spring-Summer, 1996-1997
Designed by the important Hong Kong-based fashion designer Pacino Wan (born 1964), this sleeveless bright orange imitation leather shift dress has the word 'Underground' emblazoned across the chest in the signature form of London's subway system. The dress is from Wan's Spring-Summer 1996-97 collection 'Say goodbye to the Queen' which, like that of many other Hong Kong and mainland Chinese designers, was inspired by the transition of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty. The choice of imitation leather, deliberately distressed printing and the 'Underground' sign design, combined with the Union Jack loafers Wan has teamed with the dress, is indicative of the sense of humour inherent in Wan's carefully considered and constructed garments.

Pacino Wan graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic University Swire School of Design in 1987. After working for a number of local garment manufacturers and exporters he established his own company, She & He Ltd, in 1992. Wan focuses on casual wear, executive wear for young women and accessories. His labels include Pacino Wan, Pacino La Grande Adventure Du Jeans and Idees Et Silky. Wan is also a manufacturer and project designer for a number of European companies including the accessory label Immi Paris and his market extends from Hong Kong to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Italy, France and Australia.
