YanYan (人人) - meaning “everyone” in Cantonese - is a Hong Kong-based knitwear brand founded by knitwear specialist Phyllis Chan and designer Suzzie Chung. Making thoughtful, design-driven products is Yan Yan's motto. From sourcing to customers, thinking about people is present in every step of production.
In YanYan's own words:
"Our grandmothers taught us to embrace our own individual sense of style, be fearless and wear what makes us happy. Our products are a reflection of that attitude – fun, eclectic pieces that juxtapose modern and traditional elements. We want to create clothing that’s inspired by our lives in New York and Hong Kong with nods to our heritage. Each piece is designed to be emotional and thoughtful, reflecting the playfulness, whimsy and confidence of the modern empowered individual.
Knitwear isn’t a typical medium that’s used in traditional Chinese clothing therefore we want to explore what the material can do. We believe well-designed knitwear is an investment that inspires you to revisit time again and again. Our materials are sourced from specialty mills around the world, and proudly knitted in China. We focus on using novelty yarns with truly special texture and character."
