Calvin Chan

Designer | The World Is Your Oyster

Founded in early 2014 by the designer duo Calvin Chan & Joyce Kun, The World Is Your Oyster is a Hong Kong-based contemporary style brand that merges the characteristics of formal tailoring with elements of street wear. The brand emphasizes the importance of exploring and to redefine contemporary clothing by experimenting new details, forms, silhouette and ideas.

 

Just as the brand’s name, the brand emphasizes the importance of exploring. It aims to explore the definition of contemporary clothing by experimenting new details, forms, silhouette and ideas; together with the designers’ own emotion, which created the brand’s identity – fresh and poetic. Juxtaposition clothing, reinvention and collage of fabric are the brand’s signature elements. The collections often feature clean silhouette and surprising choice of material to give just the right amount of drama. Distinct aesthetic is achieved by playing great attention to small details in all of the designs, creating a twist in an unexpected and modern way. The brand also put emphasis on wear-ability, hoping to fit in modern man and women’s wardrobe.

 

Calvin Chan graduated from Hong Kong Design Institute. He was awarded in many design competitions during the school years, and he got the DFA Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award in 2015. He worked for fashion designer brand Yang Li for overseas work attachment before starting the brand.

 

The designer duo was selected to be one of the “10 Asian Designers To Watch” of Fashion Asia 2017 Hong Kong organized by Hong Kong Design Centre. The World Is Your Oyster collections are now available at Lane Crawford Hong Kong, Shanghai and Chengdu.
