i-am-chen SS19 at Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week

This Hong Kong based fashion knitwear brand founded by ZHI Chen is the winner of the SS19 coveted Merit Award

 Watching the Vietnamese film ‘The Scent of Green Papaya’ Chen was inspired by how the main character Mui finds beauty in the small details of her surroundings: water droplets on a leaf and speckled sunlight through the undergrowth.

 The green foliage and nourishing rain are the spirit of Chen’s SS19 collection.

 She introduces the finest silk knit using an 18 gauge knitting machine with Japanese superfine silk yarn. Knitted together with Italian translucent yarn the result creates pieces shimmering like speckled sunlight.

The collection is colourful and youthful bringing a fun element to knitwear.
