The work of Chen Peng can be defined as the One-sized Fashion, speaking for the minority with special body sizes. In Peng’s design aesthetics, there are no boundaries between beauty and ugliness. Instead he focuses on accentuating personal features. Peng designs pieces suitable for both over-sized and skinny masses by comparing differet body shapes among various individuals. Anders Sølvsten Thomsen, the stylist from ANTIDOTE magazine, described Peng’s work as “anti-tradition and deviant.”
As the creative director of CHENPENG, Peng has his own attitude and opinion for the industry. He thinks keeping the line and design- ing process closely integrated is crucial, it is necessary to have some elements of boldness and surprise in design, but it also has to remain practical and functional.
