Macau has added to its impressive array of menswear boutiques with I.N.K, a pop-up store featuring designs from Macanese fashion team Kris Chan and Inky Leong.
Located at The Promenade Shops at Galaxy Macau, visitors to the new shop will discover a ready-to-wear line and accessories that are both cutting-edge and culture-crossing.
The new brand caters to aesthetes who want to set the trends instead of follow them, encouraging thinking in fashion with new technology, clothing material and 3D draping techniques. Design concepts incorporate the diversity and vibrancy of Macau and its local culture, arts, music and collective memory.
“I.N.K complements The Promenade Shops’ rich collection of boutiques with incredibly original, authentically Macanese fashion that is sure to excite our diverse range of customers, ” says Hazel Wong, assistant senior vice president of retail for Galaxy Macau.
Macau-born Chan studied fashion design at Shih Chien University’s College of Design and has been in the fashion industry ever since. He has worked as a stylist for TV and concerts and as a designer in menswear, ladies’ wear and children’s wear.
In May 2015, he founded Neverknow Studio, where he launched his own T-shirt brand and managed its illustration design. He was later invited by Burberry to work as an illustrator at workshops in Macau and Hong Kong. Chan has also collaborated with Taiwanese brand Wind Salon, the Taiwanese websites FFLives and 25:01, Thai brand Thorny Mouse, and Macau’s E-Spark and Inky Store.
Also born in Macau, Leong has worked as a brand representative and manager for some of the world’s most renowned fashion brands, including Vivienne Westwood, Burberry and Hermes.
He is one of the region’s most influential voices in fashion, blogging for Hong Kong online portals such as Xanga, HK Blog and Style-Tips and penning columns for the Macanese cultural publication SD Magazine. In 2014 he founded Inky Store, a boutique combining lifestyle, travel, fashion, music and art elements that is the first Macanese brand to receive invitations to the London, Paris and Seoul fashion weeks. Leong is also an in-demand stylist in the worlds of TV, film and awards ceremonies.
