The culture and traditions we pass down from the generations are the rarest gems that ought to be celebrated. GEM by WYNKA was inspired by my (Karen) mother’s closet. The 60’s brought a new wave of appreciation for fashion and this collection pays homage to that beautiful era.
Always ready to bring our own twist to the table, GEM features signature pieces with plum bottom and vintage pearl buttons, jacquard fabrics, lace and enough spark to light up a city. A touch of the west, and a handful of colonial Shanghainese influences. It tells the story of how the kampung girl took her heritage to the big city, traditions in one hand and all the feist of a modern feminist in the other.
