Mr Monkey found two racks of clothes. On one side of the exhibition he saw a lot of Flagshirt t-shirts, which have designs based on Maoist imagery combined with Western consumer icons. On the other side of the room he examined some cozy looking winter coats by Wang Yiyang, based on traditional Chinese clothing.
You can read about Flagshirt designs at the china.org.cn website, and about Wang Yiyang at the Shanghai's Source for Entertainment and Arts website.
