Feng Chen Wang is one of the new designers to keep an eye on.

The talented Chinese, last year finalist of the LVMH Prize, has joined forces with Levi's for an interesting capsule collection.

Wang looked back to the past to create pieces with a contemporary appeal.

He made a trip to the brand archive in San Francisco and, fascinated by the history and versatility of Levi's 501, decided to write a "sartorial biographies" from his 19th century origins to his post-war evolution and the present day.

In fact, the girl chose six models of the garment and mixed them together, creating a sort of Frankenstein jeans.

The options reinterpreted? The original Levi’s®501® from 1873, the Cowboy jean from 1933, the Red Tab jean from 1937, the WWII jean from 1944, the Post-War jean from 1947, and the Zipper jean from 1954.
