Hong Xia Twilly
The Durian could be the most divisive fruit in the world, with strong opinions from those who love or hate the King of Fruits. Yet under the artistic eye of Afton Chen, Head Designer of Reckless Ericka, the thorny fruit is transformed into 3 print designs that will delight anyone from both camps of the Durian divide.
These original designs, with the fruit, flowers and leaves sketched by Afton, come in an explosion of colours and strong graphical elements. The vibrant reds, bright blues, neon pinks and yellows converge and pay homage to the vibrancy and designs found on façades of shophouses, where many durian stalls in Singapore are found.
Here we have the Hong Xia (also known as Red Prawn) print, inspired by this variety where the colour of the flesh is orangey-red. The flesh tastes sticky with a sweet aftertaste.
