Our Collaboration with Brandon WEN x LAMYLAND
Originally from Los Angeles, California, Brandon WEN is a freelance fashion designer and artist based in Antwerp, Belgium. His work starts with fashion but also touches on performance art, collage/installation and drawing. It is centered around creativity, experiment and play. In the past he has worked with Michele Lamy and Rick Owens, Maison Lemarié for Chanel Haute Couture and the MoMu fashion museum in Antwerp. He currently works from Antwerp, creating and designing a limited series of fashion work and performance art under his own name. Some past accolades include winning the CTF Award at London Fashion Week for sustainable design and showing work in the MoMA, NY. Brandon has a BS from Cornell University, as well as a BFA and MFA from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, all in fashion. Brandon WEN is a member of LAMYLAND.
LAMYLAND is a collective of artists under the patronage of the legendary Michèle LAMY, internationally renowned creative hyphenate, and Co founding Partner & Executive Manager of Art/Furniture company Owenscorp. The collective comprises the creative genius of Giovanni Leonardo BASSAN, EPHEMERISM, Marc LESCHELIER, Scarlett ROUGE, Connor TINGLEY and Brandon WEN. LAMYLAND were a key part of the creative engine behind THE SKATEROOM’s first collective show, WHAT ARE WE SKATING FOR?, which was inspired by Michèle LAMY’s model of mixing street culture with the codes of fashion and art, becoming a manifesto to celebrate the world of skateboarding and its universal facets.
20% of the revenue of this collaboration facilitated the construction of a skatepark for at-risk youth in Tameslouht, Morocco, in partnership with Concrete Jungle Foundation and Centre Fiers et Forts.
