Feng Chen Wang, the Chinese-born, London-based designer, continues to evolve and impress with each passing season. For her Spring/Summer 2025 collection shown during Paris Fashion Week Men’s, Wang drew inspiration from her passion for collecting ancient objects and traditional Chinese crafts like ceramics, bamboo work, and micro tie-dyeing. The result was a captivating blend of heritage techniques and futuristic style that cemented her status as a rising star in the fashion world.

Wang’s exploration of ceramic surface treatments, like crackle glazes and textures, lent a charming, lived-in quality to pieces such as gradient denims, chunky cardigans, and Ugg slip-on collaborations. Bamboo crafts and the “yuzi xie” micro tie-dyeing method, which creates a waffle-like texture and pattern, were seamlessly integrated into the designer’s relaxed, generously cut silhouettes. The collection’s color palette, featuring soothing celadon blues and earthy browns, further emphasized the connection to traditional craftsmanship.

Recognizing the growing significance of these artisanal techniques in her work, Wang announced the launch of “Feng Line,” an elevated capsule collection showcasing the most intricate examples of these crafts. However, she also deftly incorporated these elements into her signature streetwear-influenced aesthetic, resulting in a collection that exuded youthful coolness while simultaneously pursuing a more grown-up sensibility.

Another notable development for the brand was the introduction of dedicated womenswear looks. Although Wang has always nodded to gender fluidity through elongated knits and wrapped elements, and reached out to female customers via collaborations with Nike and Converse, Spring/Summer 2025 marked her first concerted effort in this direction. Double-layer jackets subtly accentuated the waist, paired with tailored shorts or pleated mini skirts.

The show, held in the underground halls of the Palais de Tokyo, featured an impressive front row that included Verdy, Japanese rapper Reo Sano, and several American football players like Paris Johnson Jr. of the Arizona Cardinals. The collection unfolded in stages, starting with solemn greys before transitioning to wearable khakis and rich browns. Standout pieces included office-ready looks accessorized with teal neckties, utility jackets with ample pockets, netted polo shirts, and deliberately distressed cardigans. Gradient denim outerwear and cargo pants made a statement, while deconstructed suits were paired with rectangular sunglasses for an avant-garde touch.

As the show reached its climax, models stomped down the runway in slow motion, donning sleek eveningwear in cream, brown, and black, complete with show-stopping rubber shoe covers that demonstrated Wang’s versatility and forward-thinking approach. With her Spring/Summer 2025 collection, Feng Chen Wang solidified her position as a designer to watch, effortlessly bridging the gap between her cultural heritage and a cutting-edge vision of the future.
