WEARETHEFACES is a design studio that is all about collaborating with other creative minds. So our design team asked three creatives to join the boat for the first three capsule collections.
Meet the amazing visual artist Anny Wang, our favorite illustrator Tim Lahan and graphic design genius Felix Pfäffli...
Anny Wang is a visual artist and designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. She works with 3D digital illustrations of interior spaces and is exceptionally good at combining textures, shapes and colours.
Despite her young age, Anny has worked with clients such as The New York Times, Refinery29, Nike, Opening Ceremony, Frame Publishers and held exhibitions at Miami Art Basel, Konstnärhuset, Stockholm and KBH Kunsthal.
Her curiosity and drive towards perfectionism is highly visible in her works. She moves within several fields of design and architecture and likes to merge different techniques in her work. This is also visible in her collaboration with Wearethefaces. The artworks she has made are specially made for these clothing pieces. Anny was part of the whole design process from sketching, silhouettes and colour scheme. We love the borderline between the real and surreal look, that Anny has created for the mini collection with us. Find the collection here.

Felix Pfäffli is a graphic designer and teacher. His playful and sophisticated approach to design has lead to international recognition and a wealth of design projects including magazine and book covers and his well-known poster art.
Felix has worked with clients like BRAUN, étapes, Wired, Idpure, Herman Miller, Bloomberg and held exhibitions at Cooper Hewitt Museum, Une Saison Graphique, Bienale Brno, 100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design and are traveling the world holding workshops and lectures.
He has always liked creating stuff and the possibility of making everything himself. It’s not so much about the format he works with, but more about the nature of the work. When we asked if he was interested in a clothing collaboration, he replied “off course I am!”. With our collaboration he proofs that he is comfortable translating his work to cloth, jumping into a new form of canvas. Buy the collection here.

Tim Lahan is an artist, designer and illustrator based in Pennsylvania, USA. His artwork is naughty, funny, yet critical and clever with visual cues of his daily surroundings.
He has won a number of awards over the past few years, but is most proud of nabbing 1st place for the long jump in eighth grade. (He failed gym class twice.) Tim has worked with a bunch of different people including, Nike, Kenzo, Kiehls, The New York Times and his work has been exhibited at “Goes Around Comes Around”, FISK, Portland and “This, That, and the Other”, Art in the Age, Philadelphia, PA.
We love his playful/thoughtful approach of illustrating and designing. All in all the collaboration looks as casual cool as himself, including some cheeky details.
Tim and us decided that all clothing pieces should be unisex and inspired by 50s boxing gear – allowing a wide range of people to explore his playful, yet critical illustrations on their own bodies. Find the collection here.
