Angel Chen Designed Canada Goose Parkas That Can Be Worn Upside Down
The latest collection from home-grown outerwear brand Canada Goose is designed by Chinese designer Angel Chen. The brand, who has become know for epic past collaborations, is joined by Chen as their first-ever guest designer.
Chen, who attended the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London and is shortlisted for the International Woolmark Prize, debuted her spring/summer 2021 runway collection this past October featuring her versions of iconic Canada Goose pieces. The Next In Fashion alum’s runway collection featured colour and volume that translates into dramatic redesigned Canada Goose pieces.
“This collection represents the transition from winter in Canada to spring in China,” says Chen, who included her version of the functional outerwear over tulle ball skirts in her finale looks on the runway. The 13-piece collection is designed for men and women with mix-and-match layers to compliment varying weather conditions.
Styled unlike we’ve ever seen outwear before, with corset belts and fashion forward volume, Chen has reimagined the garments as sculptural and convertible pieces. The men’s and women’s Snow Mantra parkas can be worn a variety of ways including completely flipped upside down or with zip off elements removed. Despite the high-fashion appearance, the collection doesn’t comprise on Canada Goose’s functionality.
