tong is a collection of wearables inspired by Cantonese soup. Different from most western soups, Cantonese soup has been cultivated to be highly nourishing, as a sort of preventive but also curing medicine. Growing up, I consumed it like water. The soup serves to detox the body and restore the homeostasis of the body. Thus, the collection embodies soup as the warmth, shelter, protection, and comfort of home.
