THE UNITED KINGDOM OF DREAMERS AND LOVERS

hey! this is kay, I grew up in hong kong, a city with a very strong discrimination against dreamers and a strict expectation of what people should and should not do - of what is right and wrong. certainly not the best environment for creative minds to flourish, but the antithesis of this became the basis of the vision for a brand i created with all my heart and soul together with my brother jing 10 years ago, Daydream Nation, we decided last year that it is time to take a break from business, so it is now put into hibernation for a while.

United Kingdom of Dreamers and Lovers, is an offspring of Daydream Nation, a platform where inspiring people with passion and dreams are hand-picked, and interviewed.  They share their story, their journey, their challenges and struggles, their pain and gains from what they do, and what keeps them going!  I seek to connect with, listen to, and share stories of adventurers, pioneers and creative souls out there; people who dare to go outside of their comfort zone to accomplish their dreams!

you can also find my recent drawings, artwork, and spontaneous notes in KAY'S ROOM!

i am open to commissions and collaborations of all kinds, write me at kay@daydream-nation.co.uk

see you around! 

take care,

kay

好深感受,由細到大喺香港長大,覺得這個社會對發白日夢的人有一種很嚴重的歧視,對絕對的對與錯,對創作人帶來很大的錯敗感。 十年前創立時裝品牌Daydream Nation,除了透過時裝講故事之外,更重要的是相信香港需要一個做白日夢的王國,所以希望通過Daydream Nation來捍衛一班追夢的,有熱情的人!

決定關掉Daydream Nation工作室,友人很緊張的跟我說:「kay,你看斷捨利的書沒打緊,但你也不至於要斷捨自己的品牌呀!」

品牌根本從來沒有斷、捨過,Daydream Nation是非常根深蒂固的理念,不管我這一刻是否用過往的手法去創作。刻苦堅持了十年的功夫是不會白費的,我曾經說過希望重拾當年讀書時期的狀態,要做番一塊海綿,吸收日月精華,唔係講笑架!

在北歐重新出發,延續我們品牌背後的理念的project叫United Kingdom Of Dreamers and Lovers。希望透過在世界不同角落,訪問不同充滿熱誠、夢想的dreamers,跟大家分享,將正能量發放出去。他們當中有成功、亦更多有面對過挫折,這些故事和經驗都帶給我不同的啟示。可以在不同地方找到一班志同道合的人傾談,令我非常高興,也會在我失意時令我振奮,是一種提醒。希望你也感受到吧。

我自己的夢很簡單,希望可以不停創作下去,周圍去收集一些有夢有火的人背後的故事,繼續感染更多人。相信只要有夢,勇於嘗試,絕對可以創造一個屬於自己的故事。我爸常說,"if you reach for the moon and fail you'll still land among the stars".

共勉之

每次重溫這個由COSPACE COCREATE和Thomas Lee幾年前幫我們拍的片, 對我來講都好像是一個重溫初衷的練習。今天我希望開始這個United Kingdom of Dreamers and Lovers page, 可能可以說是Daydream Nation 的一個分枝吧,這裏没有產品,只有一班Dreamers and Lovers的故事,分享。。。 就是這麽簡單。

要找我的話,可以在下面留言啊!

有緣見!
