Merit Award: i-am-chen
International Artistic Director Indira Schauwecker creates a loose knotted bun at i-am-chen SS19

The Collection
 
TONI&GUY and label.m collaborator, ZHI Chen, took inspiration from her favourite film ‘The Scent of Green Papaya’ for this season’s collection.

She was also Influenced by images of water droplets trembling on a leaf and dots of sunlight speckled on the ground in a forest. As this year’s Merit Award winner - a talent initiative worth £20,000, she introduced the finest silk to her signature bold and colourful garments.

Chen’s aim over the past four years has been present the world with what knitting can achieve. The result has been a redefining of knitwear shapes and structures as we know it.
 
Hair
Inspired by women’s tennis in the 1930s, the hair was loose, but with a lived in effect, and brought together with a youthful twist. This reflected the look and feel of the collection.
