LUNYEE IS A COLLABORATIVE ART AND DESIGN PROJECT INITIATED BY DESIGNERS SAINI CHAN AND SOPHIE HAN. THEIR FOCUS IS THE PRODUCTION OF A READYMADE MEN’S AND WOMEN’S FASHION LABEL THAT EVOLVES ALONGSIDE A RANGE OF OTHER ART AND DESIGN RELATED ACTIVITIES.

IN 2015 THEY ESTABLISHED A UNIQUE, MULTIFUNCTIONAL LIVING AND WORKING SPACE IN SHENZHEN, CHINA. HERE THEY EXPLORE NEW YOUNG DESIGNERS APPROACHING FASHION AS A WAY TO PARTICIPATE IN A WIDER DISCUSSION ABOUT NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR THE PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURE.

LUNYEE REPRESENTS AN ONGOING APPROACH TO CONSTRUCTING CREATIVE WORKING SITUATIONS RATHER THAN REFLECTING ANY SINGULAR IDEA OR CURRENT AESTHETIC. THE COLLECTIONS RESPOND TO THE ROLE CLOTHING AND OBJECTS PLAY IN CONSTRUCTING OUR DAILY LIVES, ELABORATING ON A SERIES OF NEW AND UNEXPECTED FORM OF TRANS-FUNCTIONALITY FOR EVERYDAY BASICS. THEY UTILIZE A RANGE OF HIGH QUALITY NATURAL FIBRES AND HIGHLY PERSONALIZED PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES TO ADDRESS, TRANSCEND AND STIMULATE A VARIETY OF SOCIAL AND DOMESTIC SITUATIONS. FOR LUNYEE STUDIOS THE POINT IS TO MAKE CLOTHING AND OBJECTS THAT ADAPT, RESPOND TO AND INSPIRE CHANGING CONDITIONS FOR CONTEMPORARY LIVING.
