Angel Chen burst onto the fashion scene in 2014 – once again, the Central Saint Martins gave birth to a designer with a strong sense of fashion. Even so Chen's characters are fond of outrageously styled silhouettes, this luxuriant energy is spread through a traditional approach of tailoring. It's an expression of the present revolt age, so to say global, non-violent and funky; garments that embody the need of our time. After her previous collections entitled Youthquake or Fight Club, Angel Chen had introduced last week in Milan Modern Tribes, her vision for Fall 2017. Heavily inspired by the tribes of New Zealand and Nigeria, her pieces tend to define her very own clan, rallied around its own vocabulary and universe of sense. Cheeky and classy, casual and dashing, the whole collection was spiced up with sportswear shapes merged with couture volumes, soaked in lamé's sophistication. In order to grab the essence behind her creation, we've chat with Angel Chen, a few weeks before her presentation.
