Alysée Yin Chen | France
From Taiwan to France through the US. A cosmopolitan journey that has led Alysée Yin Chen, born in Taipei, to live today between Paris and Figeac to concentrate on the development of her brand. Alysée had no contacts with fashion world until her late teen years when she unfolded her passion whilst moving to the US. The designer completed her high school degree and started the University in New York City. She initially focused her studies on the fine arts world, but then decided to move to Paris in 2010 to attend the Istituto Marangoni. “I think my background definitely influenced my brand’s philosophy, the mixture of culture’s aesthetic, the interest in visual came from my fine art passion in high school, and the fact not knowing anything in Fashion as a kid or teenager made me chose to go on a quieter, artisan road in this industry. I called my brand’s direction as Luxe Experimental; where when unconventional/contemporary shapes that I experiment to create lands in fine quality making to become ready-to-wear”. The result of this aesthetic concept is a collection based on the research of shapes and movement, that Alysée creates through a very sophisticated creative process. The designer follows the production chain step by step in order to make sure the result perfectly embeds her initial idea creating sculptural pieces.
