FENG CHEN WANG

S/S 2018

With a master’s degree in fashion from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London in 2015, we first became aware of the London based menswear designer Feng Chen Wang when the brand was nominated for the LVMH Prize in 2016. In her first New York runway show, the designer paid homage to her home country with “Made In China” emblazoned on many of the looks. Most designers don’t usually boast about that, but Feng Chen was determined to change the negative connotations of her produced in China collection. With the designer’s focus on technical outerwear, we saw futuristic garments that caught our eye in more ways than one. Design touches included ruching, drawstrings, top-stitching and slashes on this primarily athletic line. And what about those fantastic gloves! A quote from the brilliant designer in WWD regarding her inspiration, “The Chinese landscape, with it’s vast rural expanses and vivid expressions of color, inspired a collection which contemporizes China’s luxury heritage.” Feng Chen Wang, a Ponyboy favorite.
