Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli



Happiness is just a hairflip away.

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Feng Chen Wang

Feng Chen Wang made it clear from the outset what her men's show was all about. The words MADE IN CHINA were emblazoned front and center on the first look and recurred throughout, at times more obliquely in the corner of a shirt or sometimes as enormous 3D fanny packs tied around the waist, spelling out the letters M, I and C. This was, quite obviously, not your traditional Chinese aesthetic. And that was precisely the point. Feng Chen Wang wanted to show another side of Chinese design, a contemporary vision marked by a high degree of innovation, such as shirts composed of cascading petals and long, puffy gloves that seemed to serve no utilitarian purpose. This is the sort of technical wizardry she became known for in her home country and that she continued to shape at the Royal College of Art in London, where she earned her MA in menswear. An LVMH Prize nomination soon followed, firmly ensconcing her on the rising-star map. Which isn't to say the collection was completely devoid of traditional Chinese references. The palette ranged from soft browns and navy, an homage to the country's rural landscape, to modern pink and a crisp red, an obvious political nod. Red is also the color of the Chinese New Year, she pointed out. All of which Western audiences had better start getting used to.
