Nineties kid designer Haitao Liu founded the new brand HIDERWATER in early 2014, at the time opening his small boutique in the design quarter of Shenzhen. Liu’s designs are a harmony of Neo-Baroque style and street cool. He favours a blend of artistic abstract prints and special textures to imbibe his clothes with a luxurious feel and dazzling looks. Such is the demand for HIDERWATER, Liu has since opened two more boutiques in Shenzhen, and his designs are worn by celebrities such as Bibi Zhou and Angela Au. Liu represents a new generation of Chinese designer that believes in “independence, freedom and a respect for art".
