Discover Angus Chiang‘s Fall Winter 2020.21 collection inspired by the modern technological advancements and the virtual reality, presented on Thursday, January 16th, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week.
“Digitalization is about bilateral communication and, once becoming part of our life, might lead us to self-exploration, loss or self-abandonment. In modern days, we’re categorized by Hashtag with infinite access to information, to the extent that we all become extremely dramatic. We are obsessed with fragmented reading, turning ourselves into information. When your information gets tons of views and likes through sending, clicking and sharing, you will rise to fame. The untouchable yet visible virtual world is highly addictive, overwhelming you with joy both online and in real life.
Inspired by technology, this season’s colorway integrated the element of test card. Used in earliest TV broadcasts, test card is designed for calibration and is made up of color blocks in yellow, green, red, blue, black, pink etc. AW20 collections are extension of this set of color. Denim is the main fabric used for this season especially rinsed yarn-dyed denim, jacquard denim and thick twilled denim with different effects or layers such as fringe or joint. T-shirt and sweatshirt are representative of each season and their patterns are inspired by Wretch — a social media that enjoyed high popularity among millennials. By extension, ANGUS CHIANG even created its own interactive social media “Wretch CHIANG”. Elements like PTT thread bump texts, earliest typical profile photos and typical Internet logos are also added to the design and printed on or woven into the fabric. ANGUS flagship fabric TPU is also presented from different perspectives with a staggered 3D effect. Printed 3D logo is also a design feature of support materials.“
