Our Chief Creative Officer, Kin Ying Lee, welcomed us over to her side of headquarters to talk about Lucky’s Summer ’18 collection. Of course, all-things-denim came up in conversation, from what to expect in the months ahead, to the pieces she loves wearing day in and day out.
"There are so many elements of California found throughout the collection that hone in on our trademark style."

Tell us about your personal style and some of your favorite pieces from the line.
My personal style is definitely a mix of folk and denim. My whole wardrobe is grounded in denim, really, and from there it builds. I also love the functionality of menswear, so you’ll find small hints of that in what I wear. When it comes to my favorite pieces from the collection, I love what we’re doing with the artisanal vibe off of chambrays and washed denim. It feels extremely special.

Denim always makes its presence known in every collection. What are some new must-have styles for men and women?
It’s true! Lucky has always been about denim since the very beginning. It’s honestly the foundation of everyone’s wardrobe, that’s why it’s so exciting to be a part of denim’s evolution. For Women, we have our Remade Collection that features so much newness and innovative ways to wear iconic pieces. With Men’s, our COOLMAX technology is definitely a staple for him. It’s a lightweight denim that’s perfect for summer.

What was the inspiration behind the Summer ’18 collection?
The collection was inspired by the idea of combining old with new, and vintage with modern. There are so many elements of California found throughout the collection that hone in on our trademark style. There’s the Future Folk influence, as well as vintage pieces reimagined for today. That’s what style is all about here!

Lastly, do you have a getaway lined up this season?
You know, this year has already been so busy that I’m looking forward to a staycation with my family. But, who knows! We could plan a last-minute weekend getaway nearby. I’m still relatively new to California, and there are so many parts to discover. I’d love to visit Sea Ranch and Bolinas.
