The Mirror Room

Spring/Summer 2022 Collection

Captured through paths of flaming oranges, an orange orchard is illusioned with mirrors. Hand drawn drawings by children contrast and  amplify the emotions of the adult and inner child.

Mithridate’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection The Mirror Stage transports the viewer to a surreal infinity orange orchard in Shanghai. Founder and Creative Director Demon Zhang often approaches her collections through a surrealist lens, as seen from the title The Mirror Stage, a psychoanalytic theory by Jacques Lacan which investigates the belief that a child’s self perception develops at six months old, establishing the recognition of themselves in a mirror and thereafter introducing the formation of the ego.
