2016 is the year of 拆 (chai
). Surely you've seen that character around town. It translates as "to tear down", or "raze", and gets spray painted on buildings right before their demolition. The character has appeared all over the city during this year of urban renewal, from Xuhui and Huangpu to Changning and Pudong.
And now, DJ crew China Social Club
have made a hat featuring the character. I spoke with one half of the duo, PCJ, about the hat and the chai
life in general.
