The World Is Your Oyster

Joyce Kun & Calvin Chan

Founded in early 2014 by the designer duo Calvin Chan & Joyce Kun, The World Is Your Oyster is a contemporary style brand that merges the characteristics of formal tailoring with elements of street wear.
Just as the brand’s name, the brand emphasizes the importance of exploring. It aims to redefine contemporary clothing by experimenting with 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 materials to give just the right amount of drama. The 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 emphasizes wear-ability, hoping to fit in modern man and women’s wardrobe.

Calvin Chan graduated from the 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.

Joyce Kun graduated from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She received sponsorship from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Fenix Fashion Ltd. for an overseas study trip during her study. She also received “Designer Award for Hung On” in 2017.

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.
