Runway @ Fashion Scout / London Fashion Week
Angel Chen Spring Summer 2016 collection is inspired by a new wave period called “Youthquake” prevalent in the 1960’s and initiated by Diana Vreeland, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue at the time. It saw a cluster of new fashion, art and design powers stirring the creativity of the young generation. An integral movement shaping the world as it is today, an incubator for such creative possibilities for fashion, design, and art.
The new collection features designs composed of inflatable shells and colourful sponges representing the fearless new-age generation and diversity.
The power grains representing the restless cells, sweet and exciting. Transparent PVC shell is filled with blooming colourful cells like running blood vessel. The completed looks take the shape of neon pink monsters walking out upon the Fashion Scout stage, only triggering more thinking, creativity and ideas.
