Fashion is a form of self-expression, and for her Spring 2019 Menswear collection, Feng Chen Wang explores the connection between one’s emotions and their choice of clothing. Her ethereal offering this season channels various emotions through various pieces, with the deconstructed Rick Owens-like pieces representing rage and distraught, while the more tailored and wearable ensembles showed a sense of fulfillment and contentment. Even her use of color was central to the theme, as hints of pale and pastel blues, pinks, and greens offer a visual representation of a spectrum of emotions. The gradient effect on certain pieces, mainly the billowy white coat that opened the show and the womenswear swimsuits that followed soon after, as well as the stark color-blocking on the denim separates, offer a look into the complexities of human emotions and how one can feel a flurry of such at the same time. This was an interesting, almost scientific-like approach to fashion, and sure enough, people will be feeling all kinds of emotions when they see this collection.
