Feng Chen Wang Straddles the Line Between Real and Virtual in Latest Metaverse Show

As her home city of Shanghai begins to reopen following the latest wave of COVID-19, Feng Chen Wang presents her eponymous label’s first-ever metaverse fashion show, introducing a new made-to-measure online shopping experience in which customers can order tailored pieces they see from the brand’s virtual showcases. Presented as part of Shanghai Fashion Week, the collection consists of avant-garde tailoring for men as well as expressive womenswear, all of which are made to be seasonless.

The looks bring together both real and virtual pieces that both currently exist and don’t yet exist in the real world. The collection on display is linked to the designer’s FW22 collection presented earlier this year in London and extends to more futuristic and sustainable made-to-measure pieces including custom-embellished Air Force 1s.

“The concept of the real and the virtual – and the way those two entities interact is what underpins Feng Chen Wang’s Metaverse fashion show. Presented as part of Shanghai Fashion Week, Feng invites us on a journey into her virtual world – in the literal contemporary sense, and in the older philosophical one,” the label writes in a post.

Feng Chen Wang’s new online shopping experience is set to launch soon. Stay connected to the brand’s Instagram found below and sign up for the newsletter here for the latest updates.
