Chinese-born, London-based designer Feng Chen Wang has gained a vast following for her authentic, emotional and multi-dimensional aesthetic. Her main focuses are technical unisex outerwear that is functional, conceptual and personal.
Wang’s partnership with Converse has previously allowed her to add her touch to some of the other models like the Chuck 70, ERX, and the Pro Leather. She has made a name for herself in the footwear realm and continues to do so as she now reworks the iconic Jack Purcell.
The Jack Purcell is recognized by its “smile” toe cap and hit badminton courts in 1935. Feng Chen personalizes the shoe with panels cut in the shape of the Mandarin characters that form her name (王逢陈), resulting in a dynamic system of layering all over the upper.
