Taiwanese menswear designer Chin Wang launched his semi-eponymous label in 2015. Having initially trained in womenswear before embarking upon his studies abroad, the Central Saint Martin’s grad swiftly drew notice for his playfully gender-fluid approach to men’s fashion. Using traditional structured tailoring as a visual springboard, Chin subverts these masculine markers by injecting his creations with feminine-forward design elements, tongue-in-cheek styling, and sleazy-sexy slogans. With an ever-shifting stockpile of sartorial influences that includes fetish wear, Victorian-era undergarments and Japanese school-age gangster swag, what remains constant in the innovative designer’s output is a passion for total flexibility and a desire to see his capricious aesthetic represented, in all its idiosyncrasies, amid the contemporary menswear landscape. Through it all, Chin’s collections maintain an underlying philosophy that’s more carefree than it is controversial, thereby encouraging a lightheartedly apolitical appreciation of the gender-bent avant-garde.
