The Unmistakable Allure of a ‘ Twist and Tang ’ Qipao
Transcending time and trends, the qipao (also known as the cheongsam) is the quintessential Chinese style dress, known for classic beauty and a tailored silhouette that accentuates curves in all the right places. Shanghai Tang’s take on the modern qipao combines the masterful tailoring and intricate elements of the traditional qipao with a modern twist including contemporary silk-cotton materials, elevated details and modernised silhouettes. Whether dressed up for classic charm or dressed down for a more casual and edgy take, the qipao never fails to impress. With ‘ Twist and Tang ’ , the qipao’s iconic slit can be customised to feature your choice of embroidered tape and frog button style for your own added allure.
Incomparable Flair with a ‘ Twist and Tang ’ Tang Jacket
Traditionally associated with the Qing dynasty upper class and formal wear of the 1940s, Shanghai Tang has reinvented the Tang jacket with stretchy modern textiles, printed silk lining and a stunningly androgynous appeal, perfect for a variety of unisex and neutral looks or sharing with your partner. Thanks to ‘ Twist and Tang ’ , dare to be different with your favourite embroidered tape detailing on upturned sleeve cuffs and stylish frog buttons in your hand picked palette for the ultimate flair.

Frog Buttons Convey Your Unique Palette
