Have you seen the AREA X Dingyun Zhang Puffer Collection? In case you haven’t we simply had to share it with you. The small collection includes some of the wildest down-filled separates we’ve ever seen.
AREA X Dingyun Zhang Puffer Collection
New York fashion label AREA teamed up with 26 year-old Chinese designer Dingyun Zhang (aka Din Yung Zhang) who is hot “puffy” property. In case you are unfamiliar with the term, Puffers is the name now given to what we used to call “down jackets.”
Zhang has a Masters degree from the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London and began to work for Kanye West’s YEEZY upon graduating. His oversized puffers for YEEZY gained him instant attention and he’s even one of this year’s Moncler Genius designers (the Met Gala of Puffiness).
But it’s his little quiet collaboration of puffer pieces for NYC’s Area label that make us drool.
The puffy pieces designed for AREA combine Dingyun Zhang’s unusual silhouettes with AREA’s inimitable crystal-embellished rock star/ show girl garb. The results are one fabulous hooded puffer jacket (hood is detachable) in black or yellow with crystal-trimmed pockets, an ivory vest decorated with crystal chain fringe and a matching crystallized bra and skirt – all of which are down-filled.
