The Feng Chen Wang Fall/Winter 2020 collection was inspired by a recent trip the designer made to the Wuyi Mountains, in northern Fujian province, China, close to her hometown. Ascending the mountain while it was still dark, she reached the summit before dawn and waited for the sun to rise over her surroundings. This felt like a metaphor for her life since starting her brand: working, waiting and hoping for dawn.
The colours of the collection take inspiration from the dawn she witnessed in the Wuyi Mountains: darker, cooler shades such as icy greys and blues give way to brighter, warmer hues such as fiery reds. Meanwhile, the feeling of the dawn is expressed through various graphic patterns.
