Established in 2014 by design duo Calvin Chan and Joyce Kun, The World Is Your Oyster is a Hong Kong-based contemporary menswear label. The pair share vibrant and accomplished backgrounds in fashion and design—Calvin studied Fashion Design & Product Development at the Hong Kong Design Institute and Joyce studied Fashion & Textiles (Knitwear Design with Technology) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Together, they identified a gap in the market for introspective menswear and sought to create a range that expanded the traditional parameters of this category. Their designs caught the attention of JOYCE boutique, who invited them to create a pop-up store in PMQ. Their collections were warmly received, sparking a collaboration with the JOYCE team, as they designed uniforms for the staff across the JOYCE China and Hong Kong boutiques.
The pair have received numerous accolades, including 2014 “The Next New” campaign of Lane Crawford Winner, participants in the JOYCE Boutique Talent Shop Programme and were named one of the “10 Asian Designers to Watch” Fashion Asia 2017 Hong Kong. They have as also received personal design awards such as the 2015 Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (Calvin Chan) and the 2017 Fashion Xiongan Designer Award (Joyce Kun).
即使经过特殊处理，这些奢华面料仍保留了柔软舒适的特质，“破坏性”的处理亦丝毫没有影响时装的可穿性。此系列中的亮点包括黑色灯芯绒套装、罗纹运动衫和混合罗纹针织毛衣，均采用设计师经典剪裁并饰以漂白花卉图案。此系列的一款羊毛长大衣更选用了全球柔软度最高的面料之一 – 双面羊绒，通过剪裁与剥离，展露内层结构，借此倡导正视每一个人内心之主题。
