Ffixxed Studios is a collaborative mens and womenswear brand based between Hong Kong and shanghai, china. The brand was founded in 2010 by creative directors Fiona Lau and Kain Picken.
Ffixxed Studios makes clothing and objects that respond, adapt to, and inspire changing conditions for contemporary living. The ready-to-wear label evolves seasonally alongside a variety of other projects and collaborations that inform the evolution of the brand. Reflecting on the everyday, the collections respond to the construction of daily life, exploring notions of work and life in contemporary culture. Prioritising movement and openness both conceptually and in material and functional terms, Fixxed Studios propose a laid back simplicity, emphasised by modern cutting and a fluid, eclectic aesthetic. They draw on natural fibres, custom-developed fabrics and personalised production techniques to address issues of sustainability and ethical working processes.
The collections are shown during Tokyo, Paris and Shanghai Fashion Weeks and are available at select retailers globally.
statement for the future
" For us the whole covid situation has really revealed to us how quickly things can change and how quickly they can revert back to the way there were. I don’t think we will see any significant structural changes in the industry in near future, unfortunately, but on the upside, I think that it has evolved many designers on a more personal and creative level - allowing them to create from a more intimate area. It will be interesting to see what that produces in the future."

Being a duo, themes of collaboration and togetherness are forever predominant throughout FFIXXED Studios. It was by no surprise that COVID-19 only further cultivated discussions around togetherness for designers Fiona Lau and Kain Picken. With lots of left-over fabric on hand due to supply chain stoppages, FFIXXED Studios repurposed the overflow into home objects that explored togetherness. A snuggie for two and pillow cases are produced from the exploration.
Made from heavy-weight 100% wool, fabric left-overs from their fall winter collections, these pillowcases measure 50cm x 50cm. Crafted in a light off-white.
