“Home is where your heart resides,” said the program. Whether that’s the highrises of a little island called Manhattan, the sweet smell of country or a mountainous coastal province in Southeast China, called Fujian, the birthplace of Feng Chen Wang and the ethos of the collection.
“No gender. No age. It doesn’t matter where you’re from it’s what you connect to,” said Wang. While many of Wang’s clothes are conceptual, (a reworked boyfriend shirt, attached to many others; inflated headphones) the concepts are easy to connect to. Take, for example, one of her Spring/Summer looks which proudly boasted an enlarged “Made in China” insignia on a T-shirt, sending editors into a frenzy. Feng Chen Wang makes clothes to react to. Clothes that make you think, feel, allow you to even question yourself, and your values.
