Congratulations to Angel Chen for her H & M collaboration, here is a re-post from my visit with her in her Milan showroom – with Giorgia Cantarani

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Today H & M announced a new collaboration with Angel Chen, the collection will be 45 pieces and the first H & M collection with a Chinese designer. I adore Angel, we met in Shanghai 3 years ago, enjoyed the BOF galas together for a few seasons and never miss an opportunity to meet with her and see what she is up to when she is in Paris or we both happen to be in NYC and Milan. I say BRAVO Angel.

A few days before today’s Angel Chen catwalk, I visited with Angel and her stylist, Giorgia Cantarini at Angel’s Milan Showroom.
