Kwaidan Editions

“Kwaidan” translates as “strange stories” in Japanese and alludes to the eponymous occult film by Masaki Kobayashi (1965). By synthesizing disparate cultural references and unusual materials, Kwaidan Editions evokes supernatural atmosphere of the film. LÉA DICKELY and HUNG LA met at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Léa Dickely is a prints and textile specialist who has worked with Rick Owens and Alexander McQueen. Hung La worked as a designer in the head ateliers of Balenciaga and Céline. The duo named their label Kwaidan Editions to reflect their love of cinema and their own diverse “floating origins.”
