When Alan Chan meets ANDREW KAYLA:
everything starts with a fate
Alan has a soft spot for leather shoes, until he met ANDREW KAYLA in PMQ, which surprises him. It was different from the traditional leather shoes that he used to wear, is ANDREW KAYLA’s signature leather athleisure sneakers that can be polished! When he further realized the premium quality and craftmanship of ANDREW KAYLA's sneakers, it is absolutely worth owning one! The design is contemporary, minimal and everyday. It soon becomes his essential fashion item.
Apart from that, the pandemic inspired Alan to rethink a lot. Witnessing the fashion retail industry has a drastically major impact, so he wants to contribute the society by curating a collaboration with ANDREW KAYLA.
The embossed monogram pattern on the sneakers creates a visual illusion, when you look closer to the arrow directions, you will find its pointing both ways, this also reflects everyone could have different perspectives, to rethink the relationship between ‘me’ and ‘we’.
A set comes with Alan Chan's unique designed shoe box, a tote bag, stickers, flying chess, shoe bag and a pair of extra black shoelaces are included.
The printed monogram on the outer of the shoe box. A unique original flying chessboard (a kind of traditional Hong Kong chess board game) is printed inside of the shoe box.
A portions of proceeds will be donated to the World Health Organization COVID-19 Response Fund
