Tze Goh


Using malleable 3D foam to allow his designs to be controlled and precise, Singapore-born Central Saint Martins graduate Tze Goh has done some really cool things with the T-shirt. But while we might love anyone who reworks our wardrobe favorite, there’s another reason we’re head over heels with this new designer — and, unlike his work, it’s pretty simple. His latest collection, slick architectural shapes that take on the geometry of Japanese design, makes us look seriously hot.

We're not alone in predicting big things for this sculptural genius. His graduate collection, a white heat of foam moulded T-shirt abstractions, was so dreamy that the pieces resembled clouds – and, thanks to the seal of approval from some of the industry’s most critical fashion editors, the young designer became Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s One to Watch. 

One year on, this talented sculptor has just unleashed his best collection yet. All folds and twisting lapels, Goh keeps things tidy with barely there seams - even fastenings are neatly tucked away.  The result is awesome, fuss-free pieces we can move in; no more unnecessary dangly bits to get stuck in bike wheels or accidentally dip into a pub toilet here, thank you very much. 

Stocked exclusively in London’s latest concept store, LN-CC, word of Goh’s designs is quickly spreading through Dalston – but with an online shop offering worldwide shipping, we can’t imagine it will be long until this guy’s name is on everyone’s lips.
