I AM CHEN SS19 at LONDON FASHION WEEK

SS19 Merit Award Winner and finalist for the International Woolmark Prize, i-am-chen is the experimental knitwear brand that brought their vibrant and playful aesthetic to London Fashion Week.

Inspired by 1993’s Vietnamese drama The Scent of Green Papaya directed by Tran Anh Hung, the designers’ favourite film encapsulates the spirit of summer through it’s portrayal of nature, an idea that runs through their eagerly anticipated SS19 collection.

As a former engineering student, Chen finds the technicalities of knitting workshops and factories to be of infinite interest. These techniques paired with a Japanese 100% superfine silk yarn to transform knitwear into a summer garment, Chen is determined to leave the audience and consumers wearing knitwear all year round, destroying the idea that knitted pieces are only for the depths of winter.

For their show this September, i-am-chen have collaborated with Natali D, an international stylist who has worked with the likes of Adidas, Net-a-Porter and Vogue Italia.
