(AllHipHop  News) RZA of Wu-Tang Clan has taken another leap into the fashion world with his fresh contemporary menswear line 36 Chambers.

The fashion line will be molded by the artist’s classic mixture of eastern philosophy and Hip-Hop, with a high fashion flair.

“36 Chambers is inspired by the Wu philosophy: kung fu, mathematics, Eastern philosophy and art,”RZA told ALlHipHop.com in a statement. “Using that as a foundation, we’ve blended together the rugged feel of streetwear, with the quality craftsmanship of high fashion, to create apparel with a classic look.”

The initial collection from the line will feature “The Golden Dragon,” which symbolizes strength, energy, and wisdom.

The dragon design is featured in a custom woven jacquard fabric created by San Francisco-based designer, Chapin Atchison and will also include a poem penned by renowned Chinese calligrapher, Mak Ming Chan.
