SUSAN FANG

SUSAN FANG is a London based contemporary womenswear brand, established in 2017 after Susan Fang graduated from Central Saint Martins. Inspired by the beauty of nature, designer Susan Fang set out to capture the algorithms that shape the world around us. The “air-weave” – a manual technique invented by Fang herself, is a game between the two- and three-dimensional realms, allowing for the garments to move gracefully while remaining both voluminous and compact. Tiny strips of fabric are hand-sewn and woven together, a laborious but sustainable, minimal waste process. The bubble accessories, a brand staple, add a light and playful touch. Practicality and innovation reign. Originally from China, the designer Susan Fang grew up in Canada and the United States, and then moved to London to study fashion at Central Saint Martins. Following her previous experience at Kei Kagami, Céline, and Stella McCartney, Susan wanted to launch her label to translate her worldview into conceptual fashion pieces. She launched her own label in 2017 after winning the Fashion Scout Ones to Watch Award, and shortly after presenting the AW18 collection during Shanghai Fashion Week. In 2019, she was shortlisted for the LVMH PRIZE, with Dazed Digital featuring SUSAN FANG as one of the chosen five global fashion talents up for the prize. The current and upcoming stock list include Selfridges, Dover Street Market, Opening Ceremony, Browns, Farfetch, and Labelhood.

S/S 2021

SUSAN FANG 2021春夏系列「Air · Born空 · 源」,诞生于让世界阵痛的特殊时期,Susan Fang将希冀与重生融入设计的线与面,寓意着对新的开端的美好祈愿。生机无限的大自然总是给予Susan源源灵感,她将自然带来的安稳感,梦幻般地漂浮在童年的怀旧时光和不断焕发的活力体现在设计中。
标志性的“空中刺绣”系列,延续着Susan浪漫的水彩画卷,透明的纱线与轻柔的羽毛交织成朵朵缤纷花卉,绽放于层层波浪褶边之上。
“溯源新生”的概念贯穿始终,Susan从微观细胞繁衍图像中汲取灵感,将细胞在瞬息间分裂的冲击力和爆发力重新运用在树脂帽子之上,塑造成抽象、强烈的图案。
标志系的泡泡手袋和配饰以橄榄枝和树叶为主题,处处可见象征“和平”、“希望”、“智慧”、“胜利”意味的美好字眼,寄托着Susan希望佩戴者获得源源能量的祝愿。带着从童年时代感受到的安慰与温暖,Susan用玩趣的弹珠和手工结艺串成泡泡手袋和鞋履,旨在打造一个纯粹的治愈系列。
通过模拟云、雨水和彩虹的形成,Susan将最喜欢的时刻——彩虹的光从倾盆大雨中滤过在现场重现。现代舞者随着传统乐器的现场伴奏曼舞,光、影、声的梦幻结合支配五感,意在与现场嘉宾一同沐浴一场洗涤心灵的自然电影。
