Angus Chiang’s SS19 collection focuses on the older generations preserved idea of city life. This image revolves around street art in Taiwan’s city corners known as the ‘transformer box’. The ‘transformer box’ holds much ambiguity within Taiwan, with many feeling that the presence is a hindrance whilst others argue that it allows an ageless, creative freedom. Aesthetics from each era compete with one another; each poster is patch-worked with something new, creating a masterpiece that precedes generations.
Chiang not only explores the theme of spirit but also has a strong focus on durability for SS19, adding leather and a plaid-print, materialized from 100% paper. Shoes are based on elders’ favorite cheap, plastic slippers and leather sandals. Combining the brand’s classic loafers and selected Leather, Chiang reinvents a fashion shoe for the elders through a fun and lively perspective.
