The word ‘qiaochu’ means a person of outstanding talent in Chinese, just like the women who inspire us at SKYLENCE.
Our embroidered cardigan is a piece you’ll reach for every day, whether you’re layering it over a casual weekend look or a midi-dress for a day at the office. It’s a closet staple that we’ve infused with a touch of Chinese heritage to turn it into a piece that represents everything the SKYLENCE woman stands for.
The cardigan features a pair of embroidered peacock, which symbolises the idea of beauty and dignity in Chinese culture. It was also the symbol of the Ming Dynasty, standing for divinity and rank, as the manifestation of the Phoenix on earth. The hundred eyes on the peacock’s tail stand for luck and positivity, bringing good fortune to others.
We’ve finished our cardigans off with contrasting detailing to accentuate the beautiful colours of the peacock.
