Designer Angel Chen presented her Spring Summer 2022 collection with a performance show, that pays tribute to classical martial arts movies, featuring dancers Ma Xiaolong and Zhang Yashu, during Shanghai Fashion Week. For the collection Angel collaborated with artist Amey Sali, known for his expressive use of colors and visual work with lights and shadows. The collection fuses East and West inspirations, and brings a modern oriental spirit that is rooted in traditional culture.
“Angel Chen’s colorful approach to fashion has become a trademark. The same way Angel expertly manipulates color, she instinctively and naturally inserts Amey’s artistry in the collection. The artwork is converted on fabric through marble painting, inkjet painting, colored painting and spin art. The result is an impactful display of cultural vitality. ANGEL CHEN’s signatures – Chinese calligraphy, traditional embroidery and tie-dye – find stamina against Sali’s works as Angel experiments with splash ink and ink jet. In a color palette made of maple orange, bamboo green, sand yellow and sapphire blue, ANGEL CHEN emphasizes her modern take on the visual language of classical martial arts movies” – from Angel Chen
