Chen Peng, created his namesake brand in London in 2015. Peng is graduated from London College of Fashion majored in MA Menswear Fashion Design Technology, his works is defined as the One-sized Fashion, speaking for a minority with special body sizes. In Peng’s design aesthetics, there is no boundaries between beauty and ugliness, but to highlight personal styles.
Peng’s graduation works have been selected to present in London Collections Men AW16 from LCF Press Show. His collection is designed to empower over-sized people in the conventional sense to pursue beauty. Peng created garments which are suitable for both over-sized and skinny people by comparing body shapes among various individuals. This concept is similar to the standard size (one size), which is also applied on the target customers of Peng’s collection, he called it One-sized fashion.
If Social Equality is an ideal state that is still far from us, then One-sized Fashion may implement the concept of Equality in advance. Anders Sølvsten Thomsen, the stylist from ANTIDOTE magazine, has evaluated Peng’s work as anti-tradition and deviant. In addition, his work has been invit- ed by Elizabeth Silvester (the Head of the Visual Identity Department at Liberty) to present in AW16 Liberty window display. His work was published by VOGUE UK, VOGUE JAPAN, VOGUE BRAZIL, GQ UK, GQ CHINA, i-D, LOVE, DAZED, POP MAGAZINE, TIME, ANOTHER MAN, HERO.
