Momo Wang is a designer whose collection The Third Hand is made up of 12 upcycled outfits made from second-hand clothing that she found at markets in her hometown of Jinzhou in China. the lookbook was photographed by Shuwei Liu in and around a little rural village in the mountains near her hometown.

“The basic idea is to do what I can to refresh, renew, re-animate precious second-hand materials, and eventually deliver the beauty in them by my realization, and eventually have more and more people doing the same, or at least thinking similarly. A French philosopher once talked about third hand, Jacques Derrida. I like hands.” *

    What fantastic textures! Very inspiring pieces with such an authentic feel.

  3. Such beautiful photos! I just love the atmosphere and also the idea with upcycled materials. It makes so much sense to use old materials and bring them back to life again!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Have a nice day! :)
