RZA has collaborated with Mustafa Shaikh to launch the 36 Chambers, a contemporary menswear line that uses elements of hip-hop, Chinese culture and high fashion. “36 Chambers is inspired by the Wu philosophy: kung fu, mathematics, Eastern philosophy and art,” said RZA. “Using that as a foundation, we’ve blended together the rugged feel of streetwear, with the quality craftsmanship of high fashion, to create apparel with a classic look.” The first collection features the Golden Dragon, which symbolizes energy, wisdom and strength. San Francisco-based designer Chapin Atchison used the dragon design in a custom jacquard woven fabric found on the jackets, bags and on the collars of selected shirts.
