PONDER.ER is the brainchild of creative duo Alex Po and Derek Cheng. The pair met whilst studying at the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London, with both BA collections being selected to showcase at the Press Show. Po then went on to further sharpen his skills and vision at the Royal College of Art specialising in Men’s knitwear.
With a common interest in exploring Menswear through an alternative approach, the creative partnership was formed in 2019 with the intention of challenging gender stereotypes and raising questions against social norms. PONDER.ER, a gender fluid label was born to expand and reinterpret the contemporary Men’s wardrobe through dissecting and reconstructing ideas inspired by traditional Menswear, found objects and everyday experiences in urban cities. PONDER.ER showcased its first commercial collection UNSETTLED SHELL at LONDON show ROOMS Paris hosted by the British Fashion Council.
