MFW FALL WINTER 2017-18 – ANGEL CHEN FW
Angel Chen, the Chinese fashion designer graduated at Central Saint Martins in London, presented for the first time during Fashion Week in Milan her unisex Autumn-Winter 2017-18 collection with the Mercedes Benz International Designer Exchange Program. The designer pays homage to the tribal reality, bringing on the catwalk accessories and handicraft items by African populations of Cameroon, Nigeria and Ethiopia. The colours are dominated by flashes of red, while the garments are embellished with beads and embroidery. The technical fabrics and eco furs join metallic and wool yarns made with the collaboration of the French textile factory Malhia Kent.
