Body Moves: Fengchen Wang Fall/Winter 2017 LFWM – MAN

Runway, Men, Collections, Runway

Fengchen Wang wants to get physical. His Fall/Winter 2017 offerings don’t adhere to traditional tailoring and garment silhouettes, they push and pull with the body. The Chinese-by-way-of-London designer played a game of proportions with us as the viewer. On one hand, form-fitting hoodies, skin-tight shirts, and buttery leather loincloths were featured prominently. To balance out the close-cut silhoeuttes, sleeves and pants ballooned, coming away from the body in almost a tumour-like shape. But that is what has shot the young menswear designer to the front of our minds in just the year and a half since she was handed her diploma at the Royal College of Art – she has a way of turning clothes that are visually stunning, cerebrally fascinating, and albeit slightly vulgar into pieces we crave.
