San Francisco based menswear designer Troy Alders will launch a capsule collection with an exclusive Taiwanese retailer, X by Bluerider.

Alders is known for his custom-made shirts that incorporate graphics, typography, symbols and illustrations. Pieces from his initial Gaming Collection are currently available in store and online, and new inventive designs and styles, from French poetry to Emoticons, will be added to his line in future seasons.

A unique gallery boutique located in Taipei, Taiwan, X by Bluerider specializes in launching European and American contemporary artists with exclusive limited edition collections. In partnering with Troy Alders, X by Bluerider continues their respected practice of “Art Couture,” where such works of art as the classic single product are debuted for a fashionable, elite consumer in limited quantities for a limited time.

“This partnership has been many years in the making,” said Alders.”Each dress shirt is unique, signed and numbered and only available until the edition is exhausted. We believe that fashion should be unique, personal, and elegant.”

Added Elsa Wang, president of X by Bluerider: “With his attention to detail and celebrated background in the arts, Troy Alders is an ideal partner and welcomed addition to our gallery.”
