Stocked internationally at 70 retailers, including Bergdorf Goodman, Selfridges, Lane Crawford, Luisa Via Roma, 10 Corso Como, Galeries Lafayette, Chen is part of a new wave of young Chinese designers making an impact globally.

A graduate from Central Saint Martins, Chen moved from her native Shenzhen to study in London at age 17. During her placement year, the designer interned for Marchesa, Vera Wang and Alexander Wang in New York. Following her graduate collection, Chen was chosen by i-D as one of five designers-to-watch and launched her eponymous label the following year.

Drawing from the 1930s comic Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Angel Chen presents for Spring/Summer 2020 a collection interpreting the vivid colors of the tropical rainforest story setting while drawing from the courage and perseverance of its heroine.

Unlike the saturated hues of past seasons, this collection combines soft fluorescents with prints and embellishments to create a sense of lightness and grace. Expanding on her bold experimentation through color, embroidery and innovative textiles, Chen uses her fine needlework to embroider creatures belonging to Chinese folklore while evoking a vivid lifelike rainforest scene playing with the shimmer of movement from metallic gradients.
