E-waste represent data and information, named' Artificial Intelligems'. Acting within a broader context of sustainability and the younger generation's awareness of E-waste, China's WEEE Recycling Centre formed part of the supply chain for this collection. Individual components are produced in different countries. Xinyi spreads optimism by recycling e-waste components into these charming, bold wearable jewellery pieces. The collection explores fashion products that consider the boundary between 'physical versus digital'. It shows us a new way of living in digital awe and pleasure to embrace and celebrate the future.
